A Palm City, Fla. company has introduced a new device that will make your medical history easy to access for emergency personnel in case you get hurt while out on your motorcycle or anywhere else.
Connectyx Technologies Corp. created MedFlash, a simple USB storage device that can be attached to a keychain. Should you suffer a medical emergency on or off the road, emergency personnel can access your information by plugging the Med Flash into a USB port and viewing your emergency data file.
"What sets the MedFlash apart from the other personal medical devices is that it’s a web portal," Connectyx director of marketing Lisa Merkow told Motorcycle.com. "You can sync your MedFlash device with the web portal and upload and download the data so it’s always correct."
MedFlash is designed to work in any USB port and can be viewed without any special software. The one-gigabyte flash drive is about the same length as a house key. A credit card version is also available and can be carried in a billfold with your ID cards.
Merkow says the MedFlash is an ideal product for just about anyone riding a motorcycle or other powersports machine.
