NEW TextID® in their fashionable line of medical ID bracelets and jewelry
Medical ID Marketplace, A Hope Paige Company (www.medicalIDmarketplace.com), an award winning medical identification company, announced today the launch of TextID®, revolutionary Short Message Service (SMS) enabled jewelry. TextID® uses SMS technology to relay life-saving information with the convenience, speed and efficiency of a text message, making Medical ID Marketplace an innovator in the market. In one easy step, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and first responders will be able to access a person’s self-created emergency profile, detailing medical information, current medications, emergency contacts, and other potentially life-saving information by text messaging their unique PIN to 5-10-20.
TextID®, powered by ICEdot emergency ID and notification service, enables people to store their medical and personal information in a secure online account. For just $12 for the first year of membership, ($10 each year thereafter), customers can register their unique PIN number, which is engraved on their customized medical ID jewelry, and create their personal medical profile in minutes, including up to 10 emergency contacts. This profile can be updated at any time from any computer or smart phone at no additional charge.
“We are honored to be partnering with ICEdot, a company which has an exclusive partnership with the American Ambulance Association, to provide life-saving information to people that need it,” says Medical ID Marketplace President, Shelly Fisher. “An individual’s information will be conveniently delivered in a text message to any cell phone. TextID is available on all major mobile phone networks. It’s perfect for anyone with a medical condition, people engaged in active lifestyles, children or elderly who wander, and those unable to effectively communicate. And because TextID makes it easy to notify emergency contacts as well as access medical information, it provides peace of mind to anyone seeking to protect their loved ones, whether or not they have a medical condition.”
Fisher adds, “There are often times when phone service may be unreliable, such as during severe weather conditions, and text messages often go through when phone calls cannot. TextID provides first responders with access to critical information in seconds without the need for phone calls and note pads. There has been nothing like this on the market until now.”
“As an award winning EMS innovation ourselves, we feel this partnership is a natural fit,” says Chris Zenthoefer, CEO of ICEdot, formally Invisible Bracelet. “It’s clear why Medical ID Marketplace is the market leader in medical jewelry. Not only do they offer quality and stylish products but their customer service is far superior to what we’ve seen out there. We are very excited to be working with them and to help this market technologically advance, offering a product that can make a real difference in emergency response.”
