Who says gifts can't be practical? Just in time for the holidays, Angel Technology recently launched a suite of mobile emergency medical information products, including Angel Key, a portable device that allows paramedics, firefighters or police officers immediate access to crucial medical information within seconds.

"We wanted Angel to be ready for holiday sales since we believe this is an invaluable gift for elderly family and friends, active travelers, individuals with pre-existing medical conditions or on medication, young children away from home and other individuals who may be prone to cognitive disorientation," says said John Bryant, president and co-founder of Angel Powered. "Angel speaks for you when you can't speak for yourself."

Angel is simple to carry and use. In the case of a medical emergency, critical personal health information can be accessed quickly by first responders. This can be done through a web browser, cell phone or it can be carried on a USB key, which plugs into any PC with no uploading - an innovative, patented, technology for jump drives. It gives first responders immediate access to the 14 critical facts needed in an emergency such as allergies, blood type, current prescriptions, etc. According to statistics from the National Institute of Health (NIH), approximately 93% of people treated in the ER have no medical data or history available. The ER does not have a system or efficient means of accessing a person's records or data in an emergency.

Prices for Angel's products range from $39.99 for online access to $79.99 for a bundled offering including web, cell phone, voice response, and the USB Angel Key. With all Angel products, Angel owners receive medical alert stickers to affix to drivers' licenses, passports, helmets, windshields, wallet cards and key fobs that direct first responders to find the owner's Angel. There are even temporary tattoos to apply for trips and camp that tell a healthcare worker what number to call in an emergency.

Angel is also designed as a tool to ensure the safety of pets. "We are often asked about the use of Angel for pets and it is a great gift for pet owners because it can be used in the same way, should a pet become lost or injured," said Bryant. "Angel is a gift of a life for a lifetime and it's not just for the chronically ill, it meets a wide range of needs," said Bryant.

The information carried on Angel is not part of a global network of databases of pharmaceutical, insurance or other companies with medical affiliations. It is not shared with clinics, HMOs, hospitals, banks or employers.

Angel is a product of Angel Technology that is headquartered in The Woodlands, TX. To learn more about Angel, please visit http://www.angelpowered.com.
