Dear ipSOX fan,

Welcome to our website!

It's been three years since we started selling our ipSOX to raise money for diabetes funding and research. From the conception of the idea to getting the first ipSOX off the production line, we've strived to create what we think is the best range of pump covers available. And, although we don't like to boast, we think we're doing well so far. In fact in 2012 ipSOX raised £3000 for Diabetes UK.

ipSOX flyers in the post

Five thousand flyers arrived this week and so bundles of them are now steadily being sent in large envelopes to specilaist diabetes nurses over the UK (Are you a diabetes health professional who wants a bundle for your ward? Email us!). These have been well recieved so far, so keep an eye out for them at your local health centre.

A selection of moments submitted in November

When work colleague drove me back home after i forgot to reattach my pump after shower that AM!! #memorablebetesmoments

Thanks Alison for submitting our first moment, ipSOX en route to you.

 

Roddy Riddle ()  

A friend of mine who is a nurse (Clair Gordon) bought me two ipSOX, a football one and a blue smiley face one when she heard I was running the toughest footrace in the World the Marathon Des Sables through the Moroccan Saharan Desert to raise awareness for type 1 diabetes. Along the road to my challenge I have raised 26k for my two chosen charities, Diabetes UK and JDRF UK. #memorablebetesmoments

blue face football


ipSOX: probably the only insulin pump cover to have compelted the Marathon Des Sables. More about Mr Riddle's challenge here.

 

Tim

Losing my insulin pen at the Smashing Pumpkings, running back to my tent for 20 minutes against the crowds, turning the tent upside down to find nothing, fighting back against the crowds to the first aid tent, hysterically babbling at the first-aiders, and then recieving a call from a friend who said they'd found my pen.

Submitted by Tim. (I like the Smashing Pumpkins Tim. Diabetes UK has festival advice here.)

 

Rhoda Martin

I was playing the organ for a funeral, and during a period of silence when people were being encouraged to recall their memories of the deceased, my pump started beeping warning me of low insulin levels in the reservoir.  As my pump was in my cleavage beneath my cassock and surplice, I could hardly rummage in such an intimate place in front of everyone.  I developed a coughing fit to cover the noise, until we moved on to sing the last hymn when I could play over the electronic sound effects.

Emailed in by Rhoda Martin (Cheers Rhoda, exceedingly memorable)

 

Ruth

The moment I'll never forget is working abroad with a medical team in Central America a day away from civilisation - on arrival at base camp I realised I had left my insulin bottle in the fridge back in the town - with only a day's supply of insulin left I did a major panic, no way of getting it back for two days, the boat had gone!

The doc on the team suggested we use the sat phone & ring the only bush clinic for miles - after a fraught hour, some hasty translation and a 30 min boat ride we found some insulin which was similar and some needles to last me for the week! A very close call!

Submitted by Ruth, via email. (Thank you Ruth. He dejado algo importante en la parte inferior de la montaña! According to google's Spanish.)

 

Fiona

I had to have long acting insulin sent to hotel in a taxi on my wedding night because I forgot to pack it!
