How the pockets work
AnnaPS products have pockets specifically designed to keep
the insulin pump safe, comfortable and discrete – whilst not having to bring a classic (and often bulky!) insulin pump case. The insulin pump will not fall out of the AnnaPS pockets no matter what activity you do, and the tubing is kept on the inside. AnnaPS strives towards delivering pocket solutions that makes it easy to put the insulin pump in, and take it out, and in most of our products you can put the insulin pump in without even have to disconnect the infusion set. The different pocket placements, as well as the different tubing openings, exist to accomodate the specific needs of insulin pump wearers; including being able to carry the insulin pump vertically, horizontally, upwards or downwards. Needs not accomodated by most diabetes cases on the market. We do this to minimise the risk of air bubbles in the tubing and secure a good insulin flow. The pockets are placed so that the insulin pump will follow the body’s natural movements. To get the most out of the AnnaPS products, it is important that you use the functions offered in the right way. If the insulin pump is put into the product the right way, it can not fall out. Today AnnaPS has got two different models of pockets: an overlap pocket and a pocket with a pushbutton. There are also two different sizes of pockets, one smaller and one bigger. Inside the pocket there are two solutions to keeping the tubing on the inside of the garment; either via an opening which you can slide the insulin pump into without having to detach the infusion set, or an opening formed like a button hole. To inform you as a customer about which pocket is on which product, we have named the pocket models, and within the product manual have given a short explanation for each product. There you can also find a direct link to the user manual for further assistance. Leave the insulin pump case at home, and bring your insulin pump in trendy clothes with pockets instead! Easy, safe and comfortable. Here is a short description of our pocket models;
- BOXI = a small pocket (6,7 cm x 12,5 cm) with a push-button, that fits an insulin pump. Here the opening is from the inside, and you can therefore place the insulin pump into the pocket without having to detach it from the infusion set. You then have the tubing on the inside of the garment.
- BOXI2 = a small pocket (6,7 x 12,5 cm) with an overlapping lid, that fits an insulin pump. The insulin pump is easy to reach from the outside. For the BOXI2 pocket model you can choose between an opening from the inside, and a button hole opening. When using the inside opening model, you can put the insulin pump in place without having to detach the infusion set, keeping the tubing on the inside. The kids tank tops also has an extra opening, at the bottom part of the pocket. This is for those who like to carry their insulin pump downwards to minimize the risk of air bubbles. When using the button hole opening, you detach the tubing from the infusion set, thread through the clutch and retach it. Keeping the tubing on the inside of the garment.
- BOXI4 = a large pocket (8 cm x 16,5 cm) with an overlap lid, that fits both an insulin pump and insulin pens. The insulin pump is easy to reach form the outside of the garment. Here the opening is from the inside and you can therefore place the pump into the pocket without having to detach it from the infusion set. The tubing is then positioned on the inside of the garment. There is also another inside opening, at the bottom part of the pocket. This is for those who like to carry their insulin pump downwards to minimize the risk of air bubbles.
