A little while ago there was a query about whether people wore emergency information tags such as medic alert. I have today come across another item which some people may find useful if they do not know about it already. It is called the UTAG ICE credit card.
It is basically a small USB stick which fits and slides either within the credit card or can be worn separately on a keyring or even as a zip pull. (these things are getting so small!)You enter the information on it yourself using the UTAG software on the stick, and in an emergency the hospital put it into their computers where the software is recognised and runs automatically. It has the big ICE (In case of Emergency) logo on the outside with the medic logo and it can include the information you want such as emergency contact details, medication, doctor, medical history etc. and can also store some extra important files either scanned or copied you might want such as passport info. and a photo of you too if you wish. It seems to be quite tough, made of aluminium alloy. It costs around twenty pounds,and can be purchased over the internet from retailers or even ebay. Not cheap but certainly very comparable to other identity items. Have not got one myself so have not tried it out, but it looks to be quite useful so am seriously considering it, or might even put it on my Christmas list!
Something a bit different to a bracelet and it would be so easy to add to other cards in your purse or wear. If lost, the software itself does not contain personal identity information. Other info available on their website but have listed what I think might be the most helpful.Hope everyone has as good a Christmas as possible and wishing for a better new year on all fronts for you all. Take care.
