Freeskier awards OBEX BC Spin with “Best of Show” . “Designed for skiers who frequent the skin track, the Obex BC Spin incorporates life-saving technology via a near field communication (NFC) chip that can be used to help first responders in medical emergency situations. By storing the user’s medical data on the chip, responders–including ski patrol and search and rescue organizations–can access that information through an app (called myiceinfo) to better guide their first response decisions. When a traumatic injury happens, time is of the essence and because of a one-year exclusivity deal, the Obex BC Spin is the only helmet on the market with this technology right now”

In the Snow “…allows the helmet to communicate for you and help first responders in the critical ‘Golden hour’ after an accident.” (link)

Das Medizin blog writes, Albert Meier from the DSLV sees a lot of benefit in this: "If the emergency services are involved in this idea, I think that makes extremely sense," he says. "When the going gets tough, it can be an important time advantage."

Albert Meier vom DSLV sieht darin viel Nutzen: «Wenn die Rettungskräfte bei dieser Idee dabei sind, halte ich das für extrem sinnvoll», sagt er. «Wenn es hart auf hart kommt, dann kann es einen wichtigen Zeitvorteil bedeuten.» (link)

twICEme and POC awards winners at ISPO in Munich  

The new ski helmet Obex BC from the Swedish company POC has been awarded at ISPO in Munich. The helmet is equipped with NFC chip (tag) from My ICE Info AB and has been developed to support getting the right help quickly after an accident, which can be the difference between life and death. Integrating the Near Field Communication (NFC) chip is unique in a snow sports industry. My ICE Info’s NFC technology twICEme enables you to communicate with the helmet and it protect you even after an accident as the NFC chip holds your details and medical ID profile. 

With an NFC ID chip integrated in the helmet, anyone with a NFC enabled smartphone will be able to retrieve the information in an instant, potentially helping medical professionals make the best judgements for treatment within the vital ”Golden Hour” after an accident has occurred. 

NFC, Near Field Communication, is a wireless data transfer technology. The NFC chip can be loaded with your medical ID profile, read via a smartphone, to support rescuers. It requires no battery, or cloud service, and can be updated/changed. The NFC chip is virtually weightless, imbedded between the liner and shell to ensure security and readability. 

"To have access to critical and accurate information about the patient can be absolutely vital in an emergency situation" says ambulance nurse Tim Wiklund with experience of over 200 rescue missions with ambulance helicopters. 

   "Two of the advantages of our solution are that the Medical ID tag in the helmet does not contain any battery and that one can read information without access to the Internet" says COO at My ICE Info AB Anders Bromee
