The MediRead medical bracelet allows paramedics, other health professionals and first-responders get access to your medical information quickly and efficiently.
The MediRead bracelet allows paramedics and other health professionals to access your medical information quickly and efficiently. It works in conjunction with a free smartphone app of the same name. It’s waterproof, durable, available in a range of colours and sizes and is potentially a life-saving accessory.
Available sizes (inner circumference):
Small: 160mm (6.3 inches)
Medium: 176mm (6.9 inches)
Large: 191mm (7.5 inches)
X-Large: 220mm (8.7 inches)
To determine which size is needed, you can measure the circumference of the wearer’s wrist using a tape, string or strip of paper, add about 10mm and see which size is the closest fit.
You can choose Black, Blue, Pink, or Purple bracelets to fit your mood or style preference.
MediRead medical bracelets use NFC (Near-Field Communication) technology. They are passive devices that do not require a battery and are activated simply by scanning with an appropriate smartphone at close range (within 2-3cms).
Information is written to and read from these emergency bracelets using the free MediRead app. The full-function Android app requires an NFC-enabled phone to work. The read-only iOS version will work on iPhone 7 and above.
You can check if your Android phone has NFC capability by looking for the model in here. You can also check your phone’s settings to determine this.
Anyone with a medical condition or allergy, or those who may need to advise healthcare professionals of particular medications they are taking, should consider wearing a medical id bracelet such as MediRead. Even if there is no underlying medical condition, just the name and emergency contact numbers could be of use – for people engaging in outdoor sports for instance. People who may benefit from the device include those who:
- have any medical condition (such as asthma, epilepsy, diabetes etc.)
- have any serious allergies (such as to nuts, penicillin, bee stings, etc.)
- take medications (both prescribed and ‘over the counter’)
- have a rare blood type
- engage in outdoor sporting activities such as hiking, orienteering, running, cycling, motor cycling, kayaking, rambling, etc.
- travel, especially to remote destinations, or go on cruises
- have any kind of language barrier that may prevent them from communicating effectively with medical staff
MediRead medical alert bracelets provide a simple, easy-to-use, cost-effective and durable means of providing some peace-of-mind.
