ICEdot is an emergency ID and notification service offering safety technology for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. ICEdot syncs a secure online profile with products such as a wrist band, helmet stickers or it’s latest product, the Crash Sensor.
In the event of an emergency, ICEdot has the ability to share predesignated health and geolocation information over sms/text to first responders and emergency contacts. ICEdot ID products allow first responders to retrieve emergency information stored in an ICEdot profile. First responders send an SMS text message containing the PIN found on the ID product to the number specified and an immediate response message is returned containing information on the individual.
Perhaps the greatest advantage is offered by the Crash Sensor, a small disc which will mount onto any helmet and connects with your ICEdot Profile via a smartphone app. The system is able to detect motion, changes in forces and impacts. In the event of critical forces (i.e. a crash), the device triggers the app over low-energy Bluetooth to sound an alarm and initiate an emergency countdown. Unless the countdown clock is stopped, the app will then notify your emergency contacts and send GPS coordinates of the incident so that appropriate follow up actions can be taken.
And ICEdot has partnered with Shred helmets to offer a ski helmet with the ICEdot emergency ID badge. Once activated, the notification system is available to emergency personnel. To learn more about ICEdot, visit their website.
