Mini Review: Medical Data Carrier Helmet Tag

Safety is always a priority for me when I'm out on the bike. Having been knocked off at 30mph by a hit and run driver early last year, it has always been a niggling thought in the back of my mind, of what might have happened. What if I had been knocked out cold? What if no one else was around? In those situations it always comes to mind that the best thing to do would be to ensure whoever finds you is able to easily identify you.

This is where ideas like the Medical Data Carrier come in...

This is a simple and low cost system for carrying your identity with you on the bike, it is a self adhesive carrier that sticks to your helmet, inside which you place a filled-in identity form, which can easily be accessed by the emergency services or the 'Good Samaritan' that finds you.

This system is designed by a paramedic, and although simple, seems to work well enough. I'm not sure how well it would stick to a helmet with a very skeletal structure, but if you have one with a board enough area this is easy enough to fit and stays put.

At £5.99 this seems like a good investment if you want some identity that is easily seen, easy to access and that you don't have to worry about putting in your pocket each ride.
