MedicTag, LLC a company in Deposit, NY is producing and distributing a patent pending USB (Universal Serial Bus) device that stores personal emergency information. The innovative device is designed to store and display critical information used by emergency personnel and can be carried on a key ring.
The company originally unveiled the product last October at the National EMS Expo in Atlanta, Georgia to an overwhelmingly positive response from EMS professionals and again recently at the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS) sponsored EMS Today Conference & Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where it was an immediate success. Attendees were amazed at the simplicity of design and how easy it was to access a userÂs vital information.
The company began selling the device, simply called MedicTag, last fall and has been pleased to experience steadily increasing sales from the very beginning. The product uses a USB flash drive to store emergency information such as identification, existing medical conditions, medications, doctors, surgeries and emergency contacts. MedicTag uses a simple software menu that makes it very user friendly and the device will work with any USB-capable computer.
MedicTag is leading the first response industry into a new era of critical emergency information accessibility.
Medical bracelets, ID tags and jewelry are routinely looked for by EMS personnel and first responders to determine a patient's special medical needs. Unlike the bracelets that offer just an alert of a medical condition, the new product will provide detailed emergency medical information about a patient. Information that is essential to rapid diagnosis and proper treatment of a patient in a life threatening situation.
The device is of particular value to first responders because they will be able to insert the USB drive into any computer, many EMS units now have laptop computers in their vehicles, and immediately gain access to a person's emergency information even if the patient is unconscious
MedicTag has recently acquired a number of distributors in the US but said that numerous product requests for MedicTag from outside the US has caused them to accelerate their global distribution schedule and actively seek distributors in other countries. The company is presently negotiating with distributors in Australia and the UK and would like to develop a Canadian distributor.
MedicTag, LLC is a privately held company located in Deposit , New York.
