En vogue medical supply bags of the world...UNITE!
Posted Mar 01 2013 8:00am
So much excitement this week at Pillbag headquarters. We filed our final response to the Patent and Trademark Office earlier this week, so the fate of my utility patent is now in the hands of the examiner. I feel pretty good about the filing after the interview I had at the PTO , and we're definitely putting our best foot forward.
My attorney commented that because aspects of my bag were designed with specific purpose - for instance, the zipper pulls must be oversized for arthritic fingers, and the morning and evening pouches must be side by side for continuity - these help to set my Pillbags apart from anything else out there. We shall see - goodness knows the stylish medicine-takers of the world need a better solution than a plastic, clunky pill box!
Along those lines, I was thrilled to discover a new line of stylish "medicine" bags in the marketplace - elegant, sophisticated bags specifically designed to carry daily diabetes supplies. Monica Vesci Copenhagen has just launched a line of Camino Clutches , and they are absolutely fabulous. They truly are "little luxuries for life with diabetes."
I mean, how great is this little guy above? Inside, there are designated spots for all of the diabetes essentials, plus everyday essentials:
I cannot tell you how exciting this is - someone else venturing out into the marketplace, in an effort to bring style and grace to the lives of those with a chronic illness. I applaud her efforts and design, and look forward to more developments in the world of medical-supply-bags-gone-en-vogue. There's always room for more!
