How does the Res-Q ID bracelet work?
It is a Rescue Emergency bracelet that can store the Owner’s information, Medical history, Emergency contact information and Chronic Medication. When you scan the QR code, your identification sheet is automatically displayed on the smartphone and the person can read your information that you entered previously. You will always be in control of the personal and medical information displayed on your identification sheet.
Example 1: If you are unconscious after an accident, a first responder can scan the QR code on your bracelet. The information displayed will be: your name, any illnesses that require immediate attention besides the injuries suffered from the accident, your allergies, medication, medical history, blood type, doctor and pharmacist’s contact information and most importantly emergency contacts so that they can notify your loved ones of the situation, comfort and inform them that help is on the way and to which hospital you are going to. This will avoid any confusion and above all your information will be available quickly.
Example 2: Your child can easily get lost in a crowd either at a mall or any other public place. The person who finds your child will be able to scan the QR code on their bracelet and have the information to contact you immediately and tell you where your child is. This person will also know if your child has allergies, illnesses, medical history, medication, his or her doctor’s information, blood type etc. and act accordingly to the health of your child as they are waiting for you. Imagine all the stress and time you’ll save looking for your child!
