Hacker Group Creates $30 DIY EpiPen to Expose Corporate Greed And Save Lives

By September 22, 2016 Health, Other

I am sure that you are all well aware of the recent drama surrounding Epipen, if not, in short, Mylan purchased the rights to Epipen in 2007 and raised the prices from $57 to $318. Because of this, Medical Hacking Collective, Four Thieves Vinegar, has established a DIY version and it should cost you no more than $30.

An EpiPen works by spring load injecting epinephrine into someone that is suffering from anaphylactic shock. Anaphylaxis usually occurs due to an allergic reaction, and for many, it is the last line of defense.

Unfortunately, for most people, $318 is too much to spare. This is where Four Thieves Vinegar comes in with their Epipencil which can be made for $30, and all the parts can be gathered over the counter. The Epinephrine, however, will need a prescription.
