Medcode / medical device

Medcode
Medcode

MedCode is a clip-on QR code that provides a quick, affordable and easy way for people with known health problems to provide information to medical treatment staff.
Some diseases such as hypertension or heart disease can cause a person to faint or become unresponsive. A situation like this requires immediate medical attention and any delay can affect the treatment and rehabilitation of the patient. However the first responders often lack neccessary informations to optimaly treat the patient.
Persons with known health problems can simply put MedCode somewhere on their clothes and it can then be accessed by the first responders.
