Clothing That Accommodates Insulin Pumps and Pens

Fashion and function come together in clothing developed by AnnaPS, making life a bit more comfortable and convenient for insulin users. The clothing line offered by AnnaPS has easy to access integrated pockets that accommodate insulin pumps, insulin pump hand units, insulin pens, and glucose meters. The products are for men, women, and children, and are sized up to XXL. Each garment is cut to follow the body’s natural contours, and movements.

Pockets and Material

The pump pockets are discrete, designed so items will not fall out during any type of activity, and tubing is kept on the inside. In most of the garments, insulin pumps can be pocketed without disconnecting the infusion set. There are several types of pocket placements and tube openings available, allowing people to carry pumps horizontally, vertically, upwards, or downwards.

The material used for most AnnaPS clothing is Tencel, a silky, soft, breathable cloth that absorbs moisture, and is suitable for work, or play. There are also products made of cotton, and polyamide—a sports material.

About AnnaPS

AnnaPS is a young enterprise started by Anna Sjoberg who has type 1 diabetes. Being an active person, Anna wanted a more comfortable, discreet way to carry an insulin pump than a cumbersome case. She generated her pocketed clothing line by collaborating with a group of diabetics, healthcare professionals, and the pump manufacturer Medtronic.

The first garment developed, a panty with an integrated pocket, was tested in 2010, and the initial AnnaPS products were marketed in 2011. Since then, the clothing line has expanded to include items for kids and adults of both genders.

Company With A Conscience

By purchasing AnnaPS clothing consumers are not only getting a functional product but are supporting a socially responsible company:

  • AnnaPS minimizes its environmental impact by working to reduce production steps, avoiding unnecessary chemicals, using material from renewable sources, and choosing a durable fabric that washes clean in cool water.
  • The company states they make clothes “under working conditions we ourselves would accept because we want to make a difference. We want to improve the lives of the people who make them as well as those wearing them.”
  • The clothing is designed in timeless styles that transcend fads, and seasons, making the items an investment in sustainable fashion.

AnnaPS also chooses suppliers and subcontractors with ethical, fair business standards for all “parties, people, and animals involved,” and a portion of their garment sales is donated to diabetes research.
