radrr was born out of our own experience with diabetes and insulin pumps. In 2008 my son was diagnosed with diabetes type one at the age of 6. The challenges of living with this disease were made easier when our doctor recommended our switch to the insulin pump in late 2009. The insulin pump has made regulating the blood sugar much easier and less scary for our son than the previous twice daily shots. Today we are happy to report he is doing well. Although we love the pump, I was surprised to find that most of the accessories for living with it support the wrong image. Let me explain...
The accessories given to us by the manufacturer were all geared towards adults or very small children. The case choice was either leatherette belt clip models or industrial medical pouch on a Velcro strip—they are hardly the kind of things that kids want to use or be seen with. I immediately went to Google and searched for "insulin pump cases" and thought for sure that there would be something that my son would like. To my surprise, there wasn't. I found that there was little choice, the quality of what was available was questionable, and there was little that made insulin pumps look "cool" or "fun" and at the same time provide high quality construction and functionality.
I started to think, why isn't there something that is more fun? More cool? Dare we say even stylish? These kids have to go through a lot already--why should they also be embarrassed about their pumps! This is when we decided to do something about this situation, and radrr was born.
We source the cases from a Chinese supplier who does excellent work. They are high quality, made of tough rip-stop nylon material, with small features, such as extra pockets, that help to make them functional and versatile.
The designs are our own. We create them in-house and have designs for boys and girls. We want people to say when they see their insulin pumps not "What is that!!??" but "Wow, that is cool, where do I get one!?"
And that's just the thing--our cases are also perfect size for your mobile phone, MP3 player or digital camera. It's possible to get ones for the whole family so your diabetes child does not feel different but as one of the boys or girls. Read more..

What insulin pump case should you choose for your child? This is a very important question and one that you should consider carefully. I recall when my con got his pump from the hospital, it came with an awful "medical white" case mounted on a strip of velcro. Later he got some additional pump holders which were a leather like belt clip case. Not only were these not appropriate for a 6 year old, but they were complete lacking in functionality. My son had to wear this device 24/7 so a belt clip was completely out of the question at night. Also, he seldom wore a belt at all, so that means the leather belt clip was useless to us - not to mention ugly and stuck out like a sore thumb.
The velcro belt case was OK function wise in that it stayed on at night, but it looked just horrible drawing unwanted attention to his pump. It also had no other pockets to hold things and was seriously uncool looking.
That is why radrr was born. I hoped to create something that was cool and didn't look out of place on children. I sought to mimic a mobile phone case, so that most would just think it was that, not to mention others could also order the same case for their phones (brothers, sisters, friends, mom and dads) to make them feel more comfortable. To date we have sold thousands of cases around the world, and hope that somehow have made living with this condition easier.
