Product Overview

Why a Type 1 Diabetes ICEcard?

If you suffer from diabetes then you run increased risk of becoming unwell rapidly and being unable to speak for yourself when medical professionals or anyone who comes to your aid. If you can be quickly identified as a diabetic then the cause of your symptoms can be correctly diagnosed and treated quickly. An ICE Card could provide this invaluable information in a timely manner. 

  

protect yourself and the ones you love!

Plain and simple, an ICEcard is a card you carry with you everywhere you go. If you are ever in an emergency situation and are unable to speak for yourself, your ICEcard holds all the important information required by first responders to ensure your medical needs are properly and safely met. It also holds the contact details of the people you’ve selected to be notified – just as the card says - in case of emergency. Cards are supplied in packs with matching Key Rings and stickers which help to alert first responders that you are carrying an ICEcard.

The card is made of durable PVC with a fully writable reverse surface. Card dimensions are 54 x 86mm with a thickness of only 0.76mm (Same as your bank card). The ICEcard has been designed with the advice of first aid professionals, and with simplicity in mind. The words ‘IN CASE OF EMERGENCY’ are displayed in bright, bold text along the top right hand corner of the card along with the International (ISO) symbol for First Aid.

    Needed something as do not carry ID

    Posted by Tracy Barker on 20th Jul 2016

    I tend to forget to take ID with me except my phone so needed something to let people know I had diabetes if something happens, this is ideal as always have keys with me, so key ring great and the card fits neatly in my purse. Simple idea why it was not thought of before so glad it has been.
