Emergency ID Australia, the current leader in Medical Jewellery and Emergency ID products has designed and released a new App which displays your In Case of Emergency(ICE) information as a background wallpaper on your phones lockscreen.
The new app which costs $2.99 is available in Google Play and allows users who could possibly require medical assistance due to a allergies or pre-existing medical conditions, to input data that could potentially be helpful to people or emergency services staff trying to assist them.
Nicole Graham, Director of Emergency ID Australia started designing the app after a career in Emergency Services:
When I was working in the Emergency Services, we looked at people’s phones to try to find their details but they were often locked or password protected so any potentially useful information was inaccessible.
Once the app is installed, your important information is displayed as a wallpaper on the lockscreen of your phone, information that can be displayed includes :
- Current Medical Conditions
- Medical History
- Doctors Name & Contact Details
- Specialists Name & Contact Details
- Where Hospital Records are Kept
- Medical Insurance Details
- And Importantly who you would like called in an Emergency and their contact details.
As Ms Graham points out :
In an emergency situation the ability to find important details quickly can mean the difference between life and death. As someone who has undergone major surgery and had numerous doctors, procedures and medications to keep track of, I understand how difficult it can be to recall everything, particularly when you are ill, injured, or shocked – and obviously impossible if you were unconscious.
The app costs $2.99 and is available for devices running Android 2.1 and above. Check it out in Google Play.
