First responders do amazing work. But sometimes the only person that can actively take care of you…. is you.  You are ultimately in charge of your health. With technology, that statement can become more of a reality. Wearables for the healthcare sector is booming. It is augmenting the way we track our health, interact with medical staff and keep previlent medical records with us at all time.

Another evidence of this is the latest gadget from EndlessID. This fashionable device can potentially aid a first responder to help save your life one day.  By keeping your medical records with you at all time on this bracelet, it allows first responders to quickly access your records in case you are not able to provide it at the time of the emergency. Case in point, if you are knocked unconscious in a car crash and medical staff arrive, the Endless ID acts as your “digital key” that unlocks your medical contact information/records. This is extremely helpful if you are not in a state that fosters clear concise conversation.

The device works with NFC ( Near-Feild Communication). The only thing this gadget really needs for full adoption is buy-in from the first responder team. They will need to have the corresponding NFC enabled EndlessID Apple app.

Here are the features of the device according to the website:
