MyIDBand – your full medical profile on your wrist

myidband

Stuff happens, and there’s not a lot we can do about it. Sure we can be extra careful when walking under ladders and even chuck some salt over the shoulder if we spill it. But push to shove, if we’re going to live a normal life and not skulk downstairs in the basement of mom’s house, then we’re going to be exposed to risk.

The good news is we can take steps to try and ensure that should the unthinkable happen, we have done as much as we can to protect ourselves from inadvertent mistreatment by the medical profession. The MyIDBand is a tool which is designed specifically to deliver your personal medical history and profile in the event of an accident. The wrist borne bracelet contains a QR code which can be scanned and a telephone number to contact.

Apparently every year half a million people are admitted to hospital unconscious and unidentified, so having something around your wrist which contains your profile details and an information telephone number could indeed be a lifesaver. This is of course not the only product of its type out there, but hey, it comes in some pretty colors. The band is priced at $40.00 including a lifetime basic medical profile subscription.
