About the solution

These patches, which can be ordered online, are high quality rock tape, hypo-allergenic, acrylic-based and contain no latex. It helps diabetic kids to have their glucose monitoring systems for diabetes management on for more time, and to wear them more proudly.

“Changing the sensors are no longer an issue in our house, and has actually become an exciting time as my daughter loves to be able to pick a new color/style patch and sticker! RockaDex was started as we had so many friends asking about the patches and where they could purchase them for their own families, I decided to start on this business venture to help fund my daughters CGM costs”, the inventor explained.

She then founded RockaDex, a company to produce and commercialize these customized patches.
