Count a Dose

The Prodigy Count-A-Dose product will be ready for release early April 2010 and will allow a blind or vision impaired person with diabetes to fill an insulin syringe independently without assistance. Insulin therapy will cost a lot less with Count-A-Dose versus using insulin pens and prefilled reservoirs! In early April 2010 the Prodigy Count-A-Dose can be purchased at specialty stores serving the blind and vision impaired.

Prodigy is honored to be the only company to receive National Access Awards from both the National Federation of the Blind and the American Foundation for the Blind for the Prodigy Voice. As Prodigy's goal is to serve blind patients with diabetes, much of the profit goes back into research & development. There are plans to release more audible products to serve the blind and vision impaired community.

The goal is for Team Prodigy to get 100,000 blind and vision impaired people to sign up and work together so that our voice cannot be ignored. Accessibility is a right that all people deserve! Prodigy has a website where you can easily enter your name and become a part of a strong and growing movement for the blind that will be heard! For more information, contact:
