WHY WE DEVELOPED YOUR EIO SMARTCARD? ...
The EIO SmartCard was created after my Mother became ill with Sepsis in October 2015. During her five week spell in hospital we witnessed lots of patients who were confused being asked lots of questions. Some patients were able to answer and others were so ill that it was impossible for them to respond. The EIO SmartCard was developed. A small PVC card with an inbuilt chip that can be read by a smartphone and can act as your voice in an emergency situation. It can inform first responders, paramedics and people who are helping you in a critical situation of any allergies, medical conditions, next of kin information and whatever else you feel needs to be communicated in a crisis situation. Hopefully you will never have to use it but by carrying it in your wallet or purse it can give you or a loved one peace of mind.

Your EIO SmartCard allows you to have a voice in an emergency. If communication became an issue in an emergency situation, your EIO SmartCard acts as your voice. It gives crucial information to first responders, paramedics and those who are there to help you.
WHAT IS YOUR EIO SMARTCARD? ...
Your EIO Smartcard looks like a bank card. It has similar technology to a bank card as it contains an NFC chip inside. It also has a printed QR code on it. A profile is created online for the cardholder which is quick and simple. Key information that can help in an emergency is stored. Your EIO SmartCard can then be scanned in an emergency using a smartphone or tablet - bringing the information that you have chosen to share in front of those who are helping you.
