Wristband Combines Medical Data With Multimedia
MEDICOM Technologies, Inc. has introduced a multimedia-enabled interactive Medical I.D. Wristband that can display an individual's complete medical history to emergency treatment personnel in critical situations. The patent-pending MEDICOM Medical I.D. Wristband also boasts an array of audio, video and voice-driven health and entertainment features.
The computerized MEDICOM Medical I.D. Wristband can store, display, edit, voice and transfer a patient's complete medical history in up to nine languages to first responders, EMTs and hospital personnel in any emergency medical situation. For non-emergency use in leisure time, consumers may also view photos or listen to songs, voice recordings, 20 FM radio stations, or watch movies via earphones that plug directly into the device.
With a touch of a button the wristband's graphic 1.5" LCD screen with digital display presents, in a scrolling fashion, comprehensive health data automatically pre-parsed into 14 intuitive files that may be individually selected, scrolled in either direction, and paused for easy viewing. The information can also be uploaded from the wristband to an ambulance lap top or hospital computer via a standard USB 2.0 cable connection.
"The medication scheduling file, for example, will help an ER doctor avoid administering contra-indicated medications and the patient from spending any excessive time in the hospital going through unnecessary and expensive diagnostic treatment," explains James Klink, founder and CEO of MEDICOM Technologies, Inc. "If the patient arrives at a hospital unconscious, the staff will have access to the individual's insurance information in another file to authorize admittance, and can also quickly find the patient's blood type, degree or class of medical disease, any special treatment requests the patient may have including process for resuscitation, organ donation, languages understood other than English, and basically any other data needed to effectively treat the specific patient."
Available in stainless steel or black leather, it attempts to remove the stigma often associated with medical I.D. devices, thus encouraging more self-conscious and style-savvy adolescents and adults with chronic pre-existing medical conditions to wear one and have it ready when an emergency presents. The MEDICOM Medical I.D. Wristbands sell for $125 for the stainless steel banded model or $115 for the leather banded model.
From any Internet-enabled computer consumers may enter from 2GB to 8GB of vital medical, personal, and entertainment information via an intuitive website template, and then transfer the data to the MEDICOM Medical I.D. Wristband via a standard USB 2.0 cable/port connection.
The MEDICOM Medical I.D. Wristband will store and, at the touch of a button, instantly display:
- A user's personal demographics and medical conditions.
- Emergency contact information.
- Medications, dosages and times taken.
- Advance directives and special treatment requests.
- X-ray disks and recent medical/lab results.
- Medical/dental insurance information.
- I.D. and photo
- Physicians and pharmacy addresses and phone numbers.
- Medical history including any diseases, surgeries, immunizations, etc.
- A miscellaneous folder to input medical appointments, notes, and virtually any additional medical information of note.
Updates and edits to keep personal data current and accurate are also done at the push of a button. Additionally, medical data can be downloaded to the MEDICOM Medical I.D. Wristband from any physician's office, laboratory, medical or other relevant facility in the world via any Internet-enabled computer.
