If you are hurt, ICE Patch gives the Emergency Services access to your vital info by scanning a Quick Response code.
QR codes are everywhere. Look around and you'll find QR codes to download apps, offers, and even bus timetables – just by scanning the code with a free app on your smartphone. ICE Patch uses this popular new technology to make it easier and faster for the emergency services to access your vital information. There's no need to search your person for a medic alert bracelet. Your health and contact information is at their fingertips. It's inexpensive and impossible to forget.
Traditionally, if you are hurt the emergency services will have to search your person for a wallet (that may not hold your contact info), a mobile phone (that's probably locked with a passcode), or a dog tag or medic alert bracelet (that's easily lost in the event of an accident). With ICE Patch, all your info is present, correct, and available in seconds. Plus, because your ICE Patch sticks straight onto your helmet, there's absolutely no chance of you leaving it behind!
One ICE Patch can store your full name, date of birth, driving licence or passport number, vital medical information, and emergency contact details. This is available in seconds using any modern mobile phone, even if it doesn't have a signal.
The emergency services can immediately establish who you are, who to call and access any medical information that could help to save your life. They know it's accurate and current, because you gave it to them.
ICE Patches are only available from www.icepatch.eu
With a medic alert bracelet or dog tag, the space available for your medical information is very limited. Not with ICE Patch. Although our codes are optimised for ease of recognition and scanning even in low-light conditions, they still retain more than 160 characters of information. That's more than a tweet or a text message, and plenty of room for your most essential personal information.
You can choose what information to put in your ICE Patch. The minimum is your name and an emergency contact, but you may include other information that you think would be relevant in an emergency – for instance, your date of birth, your passport or driving licence number, and/or any medical conditions or allergies you suffer from.
Because ICE Patch can only be scanned from at most a few inches away, your information is almost impossible to access without your knowledge – except in an emergency.
ICE Patch allows the Emergency Services to access up-to-date and relevant information about you by scanning a QR code. It sticks to your helmet, harness, or another piece of equipment that doesn't leave your person.
If you are injured, ICE Patch is essential. Its QR code can be scanned without needing to remove your helmet, search for a locked phone or ID card, or otherwise move you and risk further injury.
ICE Patch can be scanned in the dark, in the wet, and without a mobile signal or Wi-Fi.
The QR language is a widely recognised, open source standard. QR readers are available free from mobile device app stores.
