There was a scream on a cold, quiet night in March of 2021.
Emma had rolled over in bed, catching the adhesive of her Dexcom G6 on the bedsheet. The Dexcom sensor filament was ripped out in a flash. Emma screamed in pain and agonized over losing a £50 Dexcom sensor.
The scream woke up Charlie and both of his cats, and he immediately dressed Emma's small wound and frantically searched the internet for a solution to stop this from happening again.
We discovered patches as a solution but were not impressed with the quality of what was on offer. We decided that we could make our own, with better materials and designs.
So we did just that. We cleared out the spare room, started making patches for Emma by hand, and launched a little store on Instagram.
Since then, Emma has never even come close to losing another Dexcom sensor.
It is our mission to make sure no children or adults with type one diabetes ever have to experience this. That's why we put so much into making the highest quality patches available. Their quality and performance is uncontested, to this day.
