Hi I’m Tiffany and this is our story,
Laney at four months old experienced her first seizure that lasted over 8 minutes. For the next couple of months, we found ourselves in and out of the hospital. At 6 months, we finally had a genetic test and found Laney was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome.
This journey has been difficult to say the least.
Currently, there is no cure for Dravet Syndrome. Laney is on four different medications three times a day, and ever since she has been a toddler giving her these medications is very difficult. She is still having breakthrough seizures and this journey has been very difficult to say the least.
With capsule medication being overwhelmingly difficult to administer throughout the day with Laney, an easier method of application was needed. Not only does the Capsule Cradle allow for easier removal of capsule caps, but it makes the capsule medication easier to handle when applying to soft or liquid food.
By providing an easier way to remove capsule caps and handling of capsules, administering the medication not only became easier, but quicker.
