MedStyle: A Labour of Love

When my son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age nine, I searched high, and low for products that weren't clinical and boring.  He was already dealing with enough, and I wanted to add some colour to his life with stylish-yet-practical accessories for his medical equipment. But....I couldn't find anything! When I finally came across something, it was on the other side of the world. It was then that I realised many other kiwi families must be facing the same issue.

It was this journey that inspired me to create MedStyle.

Our goal is to offer more choice for families just like ours, who are struggling to find fun, stylish medical accessories.  Our range caters for children and adults of all ages, and is full of bright colour's, exciting designs, fun patterns and prints you'll wear proudly.  If you prefer something a little less loud, we've also got you covered with our collection of subtle, discreet products.

At MedStyle, we go beyond just brightening up your medical supplies: we also stock a beautiful children's book collection which helps raise awareness and gives people a better understanding of health conditions such as Type 1 diabetes.  We hope to see these shared in schools, early childhood centres and homes, and our goal is to eventually add more resources to cover many different health conditions.

We’re proud to give back to the Type 1 community by donating proceeds from the sale of the Living Brave Patch collaboration to Diabetes New Zealand and donating products to T1 diabetes youth camps. We're looking forward to donating more and supporting other charities as our business grows.

Thank you for your support, we hope you enjoy our finds.
