SAINT GEORGE, UTAH — Health and wellness accessories supplier Endevr has introduced a digital medical ID wristband that stores essential medical and contact information that can be read with a smartphone.
The MyID wristband stores vital information to quickly assist first responders and medical professionals. A medical ID profile stores such information as full name, birth date, weight and height, blood type, organ donor information, emergency contacts, medications, the wearer’s doctor’s contact info, any allergies, and whether the wearer requires any medical equipment such as an oxygen tank.
A QR code on the bracelet can be scanned with a smartphone, or an inscribed phone number can be called to access the information once an ID number and PIN number, also inscribed on the wristband, are entered.
The MyID medical ID profile is said to be easy to set up and is customizable via computer or smartphone. The free Endevr iPhone MyID app can update a medical ID profile using an iOS phone or tablet. The app also embeds the emergency information into a custom QR code image for a phone’s lock-screen wallpaper.
The MyID wristbands have an adjustable band and come in three colors: black/gray, white/gray and turquoise/ gray. The wristbands are lightweight, weather resistant and come with a lifetime warranty.
Built-in ion technology emits infrared charged ions to promote vitality and wellness for the user, the company said.
MyID bracelets retail for $40 and are available at Endevr.com, Walgreens and Target stores and comes with a lifetime subscription to a basic online health profile plan. A premium plan, which adds live 24/7 emergency call center availability, among other features, is free for one year and $9.99/year after that.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
