I can haz?

Spin Hansen

I’d love to get my hands on one of those. I’d hate to get hurt when disc golfing, hiking, or geocaching and NOT have my vital info available to whoever finds me. It reminds me of the time when I would’ve needed it most… a scout camp when I was 14.

My fellow Scouts and I, being stupid teenagers with not enough supervision, decided that it would be a great idea to toss an old lighter into the fire. (I was the killjoy who kept on saying “Geez, you guys, someone’s going to get hurt!”) There was a hiss… a pop… and then nothing. Everyone but me moved in closer to see why it hadn’t exploded… and then it went up. I was the only person in my troop who didn’t have burnt eyebrows. Luckily no one got hurt worse than that…

I am intrigued. My family have many illnesses in our bloodline. You can never be too cautious. I’d love to have one of these.

Might I also mention I love the white one and the blue one, and that we live in a mountainous region and tend to drink on weekends…. I’d rather not fall off a cliff, but if I’m gonna, I’d like to have one of these with me!

Posting this on behalf of my 7 yr old son, as I have a similiar band already. His favorite color is green but he would be grateful for white! 🙂

It seems like a great idea, and it looks nice too, but that’s as far as it goes. I don’t understand why the thing just doesn’t have a barcode or a chip that can be plugged into and have all the info. Once you have the info there is no need for a $10 a year fee that will go up as years go by. Heck you can get dog tags made and do the same thing; Walgreens and CVS sell bracelets with emergency medical alert designs that all EMS people know about; in my seat bag I have an ID card, if I had health issues I could put another card in there for that. Today EMS has a method to instantly check your blood and get a type, so you don’t need your blood type listed anymore. And then I wonder, how many EMS services have the ability to extract that info?

Sorry, I just don’t see the point of such an initial expense plus a yearly expense on top of that.

I can see why you would initially think that. Dogtags and stickers are cheaper, and better than nothing in an accident. Unfortunately they carry minimal information and the information cannot be updated without purchasing a new one as it is engraved on the products. EMT’s are not allowed to plug in the USB ID’s often found at Walgreens and CVS that store your info on the device because they can potentially carry viruses that could crash their computers.

What the myID product offers is the ability to store much more info that would help someone save you in an emergency situation. Beyond your blood type and name, you can store all of your vitals, many emergency contacts in the event one cannot be reached, insurance information, and detailed medical info where needed. This is especially helpful if you are travelling out of state since most hospitals still don’t share medical information.

As for the cost of $9.99 per year. We offer a basic profile that is always free. You only pay for the premium profile if you choose. Also, what wasn’t mentioned in the article is the QR code access to your online health profile is backed up by a 24/7 emergency call center. The $9.99 per year covers the cost of operating the call center as well as keeping your data secure and covering the cost of storage for uploaded documents on your profile.

Hope that helps.

I have a roadI.D. already but this looks pretty cool as well!

I’m a little slow in posting this, but Sara was randomly selected as the winner.

Thanks to everyone that participated!
