ICEdot may be new to South Africa, but they’re making big strides in the field of rider safety. Their crash sensor (read the Full Sus test on page 27) alerts your nearest and dearest in the case of you having a crash and being unable to call for help yourself. ICEdot aren’t just hi-tech though, they’ve also brought their ID bands to SA.
The ICEdot Band allows you to create a medical profile on ICEdot.org and then in case of an emergency, the first respondent can text the unique code on your band to the number indicated. An SMS is then sent to the first responder with all your medical details, including your emergency contacts, medical aid details and existing medical conditions.
Wear the ICEdot Band when you ride, because if the worst should happen, your life could depend on the first respondent being able to identify you quickly and take the necessary steps to get you the best medical care available. Find out more at www.icedot.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ICEdot Bands retail for R250, while the Crash Sensor retails for R1 500. You can purchase them from stockists in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth or by emailing email@example.com.
