ICEdot is an emergency identification and notification service, providing first responders with critical health information at the scene of an accident.
This information can be sent manually to a phone number engraved on a sporty-looking silicon wristband, the ICEdot Band, or fully automatic with the ICEdot Crash Sensor attached to a helmet.
Stored information includes emergency contacts, such as family members and physicians, as well as crucial medical details, e.g. diabetes, or allergies. The service utilizes the Internet, mobile applications, and text messaging technology to quickly identify a patient, relay important medical information, as well as provide and notify emergency contacts.
If a member has the ICEdot app running, family members and other authorized contacts can easily track the member’s latest route and position via a simple SMS text (“track ‘PIN'”). There is also a manual emergency button which can be used to alert emergency contacts of the member’s GPS position.
ICEdot products protect adventurers and sports enthusiasts such as cyclists, skiers, snowboarders,or motorcyclist who are frequently pushing their limits – often by themselves. ICEdot syncs an online profile with a personal PIN-code. In case of an emergency (ICE), the PIN can be texted to a designated number and an automatic reply with crucial medical information regarding the injured will be sent back. ICEdot has the ability to offer as little or as much information as the user wants and needs to be communicated in an emergency.
The Crash Sensor is a slim device that will mount on any helmet. When paired with the ICEdot app on a smart phone, the system is able to detect motion, changes in forces, and impacts. In the event of an accident, the device sends relevant data to the app which sounds an alarm and initiates an emergency countdown. Unless the countdown clock is stopped, the app will notify the emergency contacts and send GPS coordinates to ensure appropriate follow up actions can be taken.
