It is not for nothing that you wear an ID card fixed onto a lanyard while you go to work or to school/college. The ID card often has the all too important personal details on it, including your blood group. While people wear some kind of an identification wherever it is mandatory, they don’t wear it when driving, shopping, or while being off-duty in general. One cannot predict when misfortune strikes. Doctors all over the world agree that in case of an accident or a medical emergency such as a heart attack, the first hour is the ‘golden hour’. Many lives can be saved if timely medical aid is provided during this golden hour. However, when a patient that has been a victim of an accident or a medical emergency is brought to a hospital, precious time is wasted in trying to procure some basic medical information about him/her. Only if the victim had a readily accessible identification of some sort, with personal details on him, his life could have been saved.

Can you imagine a way where a person can carry important personal information on him that he is not likely to leave back at home and that too in style?

These days, medical professionals are trained to look for a medical bracelet or a necklace that carries vital medical information such as drug and food allergies or other current medical conditions such as Sickle Cell Anemia, Tourette Syndrome, asthma or diabetes. Wearing a medical ID jewelry provides one’s loved ones with peace of mind. It also eliminates
