Our best-selling medical ID wristband is simple yet effective. But because the medical ID system works with any smartphone, tablet or PC, it's easy to think that it's,,,well,,,complex!
That's why we've created this infographic that details the key components and features of the wristband.
SMART Medical ID Wristband: Quick Run Through
Sometimes the simplest ideas can be rather effective...
Whilst talking to a customer this week the lady explained that her daughter had taken a photo of the username label that came with her mother's You-ID.me wristband.
She wanted to have her mum's emergency ID handy as a backup in case she was not present or if per chance mum had forgotten to wear the bracelet.
She'd also sent the image through to other family members too.
It's not a bad IDea. Your unique emergency medical ID is yours to use wherever you wish... And appearing in more places will naturally increase the likelihood of your ID being located in the event of an emergency.
Other customers have their Unique ID in cars, on jewellery, as their office PC screensaver... last year we even heard of a young diabetic that had her ID applied on her forearm in semi-permanent tattoo for a hen weekend!!
So use your unique ID wherever you wish. That's what it's for.😊
Keep the good IDeas coming.
Solo run this weekend? And will Sir or Madam be taking any emergency ID?
This week has seen the launch of our new range of Smartphone compatible ID integrated running gear. That means from now on, to ensure you have your life-saving emergency ID, all you need to do is wear your running top!
In the event of an accident or emergency the ID breast panel can be scanned with a compatible NFC Smartphone, or the code entered at You-ID.me.
This will provide immediate access to your secure emergency profile where you have registered your emergency contacts' information as well as any allergies, medical conditions, medications and specific instructions.
SET UP IS EASY
Order and set-up is simple; no apps to download and no programming nonsense to worry about: -
SELECTION OF STYLES & COLOURS
With two styles available in long or short sleeve and six colours plus a choice of reflective options there is an ID embedded running top for everyone.
Apart form the great use of technology as a safety application, one of the best things about this piece of wearable tech is the price; the investment to a runner is typically half what they would shell out for a running top and an ID wristband.
"Last year the Apple iPhone 6 joined the majority of smartphones by containing an NFC controller. However, at the moment, this new iPhone is locked down only to the Apple Pay mobile payment system. This means that iPhone 6 users are unable to take advantage of the massive potential of NFC through apps, tags and communication.
Despite this, in the 72 hours following it's launch, a million credit cards had been registered with Apple Pay - an indication of the popularity from Apple's user base. Since launch, we've been asked many times if an when Apple will open up access to the NFC controller and what difference it would make to the market. In answer to the first part - we simply don't know. Most commentators, including RapidNFC, believe that they will (and that it will be able to scan tags) but when is a different point.
As for what difference it would make, let's consider what will happen if the iPhone's NFC controller is opened up and allowed to function with NFC tags and applications." Credit the above from RapidNFC (no point in reinventing the wheel!).
SMART ID WRISTBANDS WHAT THAT MEANS
It still means that you are still 4 times more likely to be assisted by someone with a Smartphone that IS compatible with your SMART emergency ID wristband because 80% of the market (at the time of writing) uses a Smartphone with the Android, Blackberry or Windows operating system.
It would be poor judgement not to go SMART simply because you have an iPhone or because you're an advocate of Apple. We say go SMART now. At the end of the day you have to remember why you are buying the wristband. Your health or the health of a loved one, perhaps child safety, running or riding solo...
Aren't the odds worth the £5 more you pay for the SMART ID Bracelet?
We're a small team working hard to ensure that carrying ID is secure, easy and affordable for our customers.
