Project Abbie Update

Project Abbie won the HubMadness 2018 competition for the most innovative technology idea in Boston tech! Thank you for your support and voting over the last week!

Project Abbie, at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute, has made incredible progress! The team is working in conjunction with Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Wearable Injector:
The team is working on the development of a lighter, wearable, and smart epinephrine injector, small enough to fit in your pocket, purse, or even wear! This device will pair with your smartphone to connect with sensors, call emergency services, notify caregivers, as well as provide location information.

Early detection:
The team is also developing a biosensor that will detect histamine levels that are released into your blood during an allergic reaction, and that rapidly increase during an anaphylactic reaction; something you can’t see or feel until it could be too late!

If successful, the Wyss device could help protect those at risk for anaphylaxis.

Project Abbie needs your support to come to fruition! There are 2 ways you can help;
Support one of our Boston Marathon Runners (one of whom is at risk for anaphylaxis herself)

All donations are going toward Project Abbie. Abbie Benford is making a difference in this world, and you can help her. Thank you!
Thank you for your continued support!
