As a true Information Age development on systems like MedicAlert, the MedCode device offers the means to communicate a person's health conditions to first responders in the event of a serious episode. In this case, instead of listing illnesses and allergies in the form of text, this winner of a 2013 Red Dot Design Award stores and delivers relevant data digitally.

The small plastic tag has a pin that enables it to be fastened easily to clothing. A tiny white button should be kept facing outwards, featuring an accessible QR code. If anything should happen to someone with a MedCode, paramedics would be able to use a wrist-worn MedScan gadget to learn the private details of the victim's condition.
