The Tap2Tag Medical wristband comes in six sizes – extra small (141mm), small (157mm), medium (173mm), large (189mm), extra large (204mm), and XXL (233mm). The best way to figure out what is the best size for you is to get a piece of string or flexible measuring tape and measure around your wrist. If you are looking for ‘casual’ wear then choose a band slightly larger than your own wrist measurement. If you want the snug and sporty look then choose a size slightly smaller. The wristbands are great for wearing during sporting activities and extreme sports. Make sure you buy a band that is comfortable and will be a comfortable fit in the place you want to wear it. For instance you may want a larger band to fit over a wet suit if you are scuba diving.
The colours are stunning. You can choose White, Black, Blue, Pink, Purple and Red wristbands to fit your mood or style preference. For sports usage we recommend you select a brighter colour so first responders can see the colour of the band as a direct contrast to your other clothing.
The wristbands contain an NXP NTAG203 chip (168 bytes). The chips are locked to prevent over-writing of the information. Any attempt to overwrite the data will invalidate the data and make the wristband inactive. The wristbands have no internal source of power and rely on the NFC data transfer abilities of an NFC enabled device to access the information on the chip.
Our new design of wristband has been laser etched to ensure durability. The front of the band is a new teardrop design that has the medical snowflake and sword and serpent etched on it. The words “SCAN WITH NFC OR SEE REVERSE” are also inscribed over the motif. On the reverse of the band is the phrase “ENTER [CODE] AT WWW.TAP2.ME”. On the outside of the band are the words “EMERGENCY MEDICAL WRISTBAND”. This has also been lasered into the silicone.
The wristbands are tough, really tough. We have taken a wristband diving in the Red Sea to a depth of 30 metres. They worked first time when we arrived back on the dive boat. Hence they are waterproof! We have passed the wristband through a medical autoclave reaching temperatures of 135C. Again they worked first time. In fact we have run the same wristband through the autoclave10 times and the device continued to work. We have driven over the wrist band in a car, boiled it in water, frozen it in a block of ice and shouted abuse at it too. Each time it has come through with flying colours.
Anyone with a medical condition, allergy or who may need to advise health care professionals of particular medications they are taking should consider wearing a wristband. However anyone undertaking a sport (subject to the regulations of that sport) should consider whether the use of a Tap2Tag Medical would assist paramedics in the event of an emergency. Details such as your full name, address and emergency contacts may be stored on the device even if you have no known medical problems.
We suggest that anyone with a hidden medical condition, rare blood type or who just wants to be able to tell people who to contact in the case of an emergency should have a medical device. The Tap2Tag medical wristband provides a simple, cost effective, durable and extensive method of meeting your medical requirements.
