Motorcyclists Urged To Take A Safety Stand with the Emergency Pal Helmet Decal
A brand new product has been launched that could help save the lives of the many motorcyclists that are injured on British roads every year as well as making it easier for medical first responders to treat them. No matter how careful they are when riding, motorcyclists are much more vulnerable and 75% more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than people who drive cars. Tragically, in 2011 alone there were over 350 motorcycle users killed, over 5,240 seriously injured as well as over 20,000 motorcycle related injuries. The brand new, utterly unique Emergency Pal Helmet Decal is a safety-first new product that gives any motorcyclist involved in a serious accident a better chance of survival.
Most motorcyclists are fully aware of the dangers they face when out and about on their machines, and take every precaution to ensure they are as protected as possible in case of an accident by wearing the correct clothing, helmets and footwear.
The Emergency PAL Helmet Decal facilitates the speedy treatment from medical staff by being able to transmit all of the rider’s essential information such as medical history and emergency contact details direct to any kind of mobile phone. This is achieved discretely and effectively through the use of cutting edge mobile technology coupled with a very simple and effective user interface.
Ian Cunningham, the Founder of Emergency PAL says, “No one plans an accident or emergency. They just happen and in many of these cases the patient cannot respond when asked about their symptoms, medical history or current medication. Medical first responders face an uphill battle to treat them and get them to hospital effectively. We hope that our EMERGENCY PAL Decal will make the job of the medical first responders much easier by offering the helmet wearer’s essential medical history, previous medical treatment and current medication data, and emergency contacts simply by interacting with the decal via their mobile device.”
Knowing immediately whether the victim of an accident has any underlying medical conditions or special needs can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. Medical first responders are able to access vital information via a number of various channels, so no matter what kind of mobile device they are using, they will still be able to get the information quickly and easily. The simplest way is by simply tapping the NFC enabled decal, which will instantly bring up the rider’s information on any NFC equipped smart phone. It also has a QR code which can be scanned, and if the medical first responder doesn’t have access to NFC technology or a QR code reader, they can simply send a text to the number on the decal.
Bikers and family members can order the Emergency PAL Helmet Decal quickly and easily online by inputting relevant data which is then programmed into the card. The user’s information is kept completely secure and can be updated online as health circumstances change. The decals are posted to the rider and then simply needs to be attached to the exterior of the helmet. Each decal is lightweight, weighing less than half a gram and is completely weatherproof and UV resistant.
Delivery of the Emergency PAL decal is estimated at five working days, and secure payment through PayPal is available. For more information and to order online visit http://emergencypal.com
