Often it’s the simplest of ideas that prove to be the best. The Medical Data Carrier is a very simple idea but it’s one that might (although hopefully not) prove to be the best thing you ever bought.

Obviously, we all know that carrying some kind of ID with emergency contact / medical details on, is a very wise thing to do … but how many of us actually do? 
Congratulations to those of you who do carry something but just how easy is it for someone else to see / find / access? If it’s stuck in your pocket under a couple of layers or round your wrist, hidden by your glove, then there’s always a chance it won’t serve its intended purpose.

The MDC is always on show and visible, or it is if you’ve got your helmet on … can you guess where it goes? That’s right, simple and I imagine very effective.

The kit contains 2 waterproof synthetic paper ‘slips’, one in English and the other in French. Just fill the slip out with all your information, contact details, medical history, etc, etc, pop it into the waterproof, self adhesive pouch and stick it to your helmet … there’s even a pencil included.


The MDC kit … it really can’t do any harm.


All the UK ambulance services are aware of the MDC, so they should be on the look-out if you find yourself in their hands. However, if someone else finds you, the outside of the pouch makes it very clear what’s inside. As I said at the start … a simple idea but one that  could prove invaluable.


The emergency services are expecting to find it here.

The Medical Data Carrier is available directly from the UK distributor for £5.99

Book Club – Surf an’ turf.

I’m something of a scant planner and it’s perhaps fair to say that I’m usually guided by whim, fancy and misfortune rather than global positioning systems.
