The Tap2Tag medical alert wristband uses NFC and QR code technology to allow paramedics and other health professionals get access to your medical information quickly and efficiently. It can also be used with any device that has access to the internet, anywhere in the world.  It’s durable, discrete and just wonderful!

Technical information

The wristbands contain an NXP NTAG203 chip (168 bytes).  The chips are locked to prevent over-writing of the information.  Any attempt to over write the data will invalidate the data and make the wristband inactive.  The wristbands have no internal source of power and rely on the NFC data transfer abilities of an NFC enabled device to access the information on the chip.


Our new design of wristband has been laser etched  to ensure durability.  The front of the band has a clearer design showing the medical snowflake and sword and serpent etched on it.  In addition there is a unique QR code that links to the same medical information as the internal chip. This has also been lasered onto the wristband to ensure durability. The words “EMERGENCY MEDICAL DATA” is also printed on the front of the band.  On the reverse of the band is the phrase “ENTER [CODE] AT WWW.TAP2.ME“.

The wristbands are tough, really tough.  We have taken a wristband diving in the Red Sea to a depth of 30 metres.  They worked first time when we arrived back on the dive boat.  Hence they are waterproof!  We have passed the wristband through a medical autoclave reaching temperatures of 135C.  Again they worked first time.  In fact we have run the same wristband through the autoclave10 times and the device continued to work.  We have driven over the wrist band in a car, boiled it in water, frozen it in a block of ice and shouted abusive at it too.  Each time it has come through with flying colours.

Suggested uses

Anyone with a medical condition, allergy or who may need to advise healthcare professionals of particular medications they are taking should consider wearing a wristband.  However anyone undertaking a sport (subject to the regulations of that sport) should consider whether the use of a Tap2Tag Medical would assist paramedics in the event of an emergency.  Details such as your full name, address and emergency contacts may be stored on the device even if you have no known medical problems.  We have considered many possible uses of the devices including those who

  • have allergies to
    • nuts
    • penicillin
    • bee stings…and more
  • have a medical condition such as
    • having a pacemaker
    • heart problem
    • asthma
    • high/low blood pressure
    • epilepsy
    • implants
    • ..and more
  • taking medication (both prescribed and ‘over the counter’) We suggest that anyone with a hidden medical condition, rare blood type or just want to be able to tell people who to contact in the case of an emergency should have a medical device.  The Tap2Tag Medical wristband provides a simple, cost effective, durable and extensive method of meeting your medical requirements.
