A new medical app has the ability to transform mobile phones into potentially life-saving devices by showing a user’s critical medical details on the locked screen.

Australia, like much of the rest of the world, is facing an ageing population, so now seems as good a time as any to look at how we can use technology to help with medical problems.

The Emergency ID App, launched recently for both iOS and Android, displays urgent medical information, such as allergies and emergency contact details, on the phone’s locked screen for easy access by paramedics, emergency services personnel and healthcare professionals.

Director of medical jewellery provide Emergency ID Australia, Nicole Graham, said she designed the App after a career in the Police Force and her own health complications highlighted the need to share critical information when it mattered most.

“When I was working in the Emergency Services, we looked at people’s phones to try to find their details but they were often locked or password protected so any potentially useful  information was inaccessible,” she said.

“Having your In Case of Emergency (ICE) details stored in your phone’s contacts is a good start, but if your phone is password protected and you are unconscious then it’s not much help. We designed this app as a way of getting around that problem.

“In an emergency situation, when every second counts, the ability to find important details quickly can mean the difference between life and death.

“As someone who has undergone major surgery and had numerous doctors, procedures and medications to keep track of, I understand how difficult it can be to recall everything, particularly when you are ill, injured, shocked or flustered – and obviously impossible if you are unconscious.

“It allows you to store and save more detailed medical information inside the app for your own records, and to share them with your doctors and health care professionals.”

According to the Emergency ID Australia, the app is ideally suited to those with severe allergies to foods or medicines, existing medical conditions such as epilepsy or heart disease, and for those with dementia for example.

Users can input current medical conditions, allergies and reactions, history of procedures, doctor’s details, where records are kept, insurance, medications and dosages, and emergency contact details.

The app is currently available for download from Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store, for $2.99.
