ST. LOUIS, Nov. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Scott Steiger lives in St. Louis but has seen most of the world. As an engineer for the past 20 years, he's traveled extensively and prior to that, Steiger was a member of the military service. He's been to six of the seven continents. Travel is a big part of his life.
So when he designs a product specifically for travelers, he has a pretty good idea of what's required.
His latest creation is the Road Warrior, a waterproof, spill-proof, impact-resistant travel pill case that is backed up with a 15-year warranty.
"This is a market that has been full of gimmicky products for a long time," said Steiger. "We've come up with a product that is practical, compact and durable. I have an entire bag of travel pill cases from the local drugstores that do a great job at home, but are not meant for the road."
He pointed out that many people who are young and on the move take daily prescription medications. They all need a travel pill organizer that has multiple compartments, can be taken on a plane, is easy to use and can take a beating.
The Road Warrior fills the bill. It's moisture-resistant, dishwasher safe, TSA-compliant, UV-tolerant and has eight compartments. It's compact enough to fit easily inside a suitcase or briefcase. Plus, the Road Warrior has translucent screw-on lids for each compartment, making it easy to see the medication inside. This waterproof pill case is also eco-friendly.
Steiger and his team at PharmaArmor™ have developed 2D and 3D designs, working closely with manufacturers and suppliers to determine costs.
In order to get the Road Warrior out to the public, PharmaArmor needs $54,719 in start-up funding for materials, manufacturing, shipping and marketing. To generate this capital, Steiger has launched a Kickstarter campaign, which can be viewed at www.kickstarter.com/projects/1168361511/road-warrior-the-last-travel-pill-case-youll-ever.
Donations of any amount are welcome. For $35, backers will receive a Road Warrior travel pill case. That's 20 percent off the regular retail price. A $50 pledge is rewarded with the Road Warrior plus a sturdy lanyard from Northwest Knot Works. All Kickstarter supporters will receive a lifetime warranty on purchases.
