Medical ID's that utilize USB flash drives to store
medical information are among the newest and best forms of
medical identification on the market today. In addition to engraving
your most basic and pertinent medical information on the outside of a medical
alert pendant, a USB equipped medical alert necklace gives you the opportunity
to store detailed medical history, including digital copies of x-rays, medical
transcripts, prescription medications, and hospital records. Medical id
necklaces are meant to assist you in an emergency, or any circumstance in which
you might be unable to verbally convey your medical condition and history to a
Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). However, being able to provide an EMT
with a detailed medical history in an instant, by simply plugging in a thumb
drive could prove to be abundantly more helpful to those attending to your care.
If you like the idea of having a USB flash drive medical id but prefer to
wear a traditional medical id bracelet, then make sure you take a look at our
