I have been deathly allergic to nuts my entire life.
I carry two adrenaline auto-injectors & a salbutamol inhaler with me wherever I go in case a life-threatening accident occurs and I go into anaphylactic shock.
During my final year of studying Industrial Design at Loughborough University I discovered that up to 1 in 5 people with allergies live in fear of death from anaphylactic shock. Having always found living with anaphylaxis to be a burden myself, I became determined to create a solution that could treat allergy sufferers in an emergency, wherever they were.
That's when I came up with the idea for ana. - an all in one anaphylaxis prevention and treatment system designed for public spaces. Think defibrillator for allergies.
After graduating I continued on my mission with my co-founder James who joined me in Jan 2021, bringing with him his expertise in sales and operations as well as a familiarity to anaphylaxis through his sister. Together we aim to revolutionise the healthcare industry with a new standard of allergy care.
