Maharishi School alumnus Yale Shaw (2009) was recently honored with a silver design award in the 2015 international Spark Design Awards competition for his life-saving medical device, ''Epi.''
Epi is an auto-injection epinephrine device that is lighter, more stylish, and accessible than previous devices. Users can carry it with confidence, and without social stigma.
When the user senses an allergic reaction, Epi can quickly be accessed to inject epinephrine into his or her muscle tissue, temporarily neutralizing the reaction. Upon injection, Epi triggers its smartphone-integrated application to notify 911 emergency services of the user's exact location, allergy susceptibility, and personal information, saving valuable time that can make the difference between life and death.
Mr. Shaw graduated from the University of Iowa and is currently an MFA student in Industrial Design at Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
