MyID Band files your medical records away on your wrist



When we’re young, we think we’re invincible. Other people get sick, other people break bones, but not us. We’re going to live forever. Naturally, this feeling fades as the years move on, and we start thinking about what would happen if we were to get into an accident, and we were rushed to the hospital, without anyone knowing who we are. Without a complete medical history, the doctors won’t know about allergies, or potential health conditions you might have. It’s a scary thought. So what do you do?

The MyID Band from LifeStrength is one way to ensure that should something terrible happen, the doctors will be able to quickly and easily look up your information, and make sure that you get the best possible treatment for your condition. All anyone needs to do is scan the QR code on the bracelet, and they’ll instantly have access to your medical history, and a list of emergency contacts.

If for whatever reason someone isn’t able to scan the QR code, there is a number to call, and an ID and PIN to get the records over the phone. The band is available in three different colors, and is adjustable to almost any size. You’ll also get a wallet card, and stickers for your car and home, just in case you don’t happen to be wearing your band when something bad happens. If you’re concerned about allergies or complications that might not be readily apparent to the ER staff, then you can pick up one of these bands for $40.
