QR Medical ID Products include a choice of ideas for keeping medical information about your person in a handy way for quick access for yourself or others. The company’s best seller is the QR Medical Keyring which can alert passers-by, first aiders, first responders and paramedics to critical, potentially life-saving information about somebody with a pre-existing medical condition, e.g. diabetes. This means that they can be treated quickly, appropriately and allow their next of kin to be alerted too.
The products rely on secure QR technology that securely stores online. This can be updated within seconds and accessed by any smart device with a QR reader. There are up to two ICE (in case of emergency) contacts listed on one side of the keyring. There is also an instruction to call 999 as well as a prominent QR code. Scanning this will allow the person on scene to see information (as much or as little as the customer desires) such as: medical condition(s); medication; allergies; NHS Number how to treat in an emergency and how NOT to treat in an emergency From £5.95 from www.medicalkeyring.co.uk
