ICE Dot Crash Sensor

ICEdot-Crash-Sensor

ICEdot Crash Sensor

 

Truth of the matter is that nobody plans on crashing but it is a realistic possibility.  Whether you jumped on your trusty road machine for a short ride, or dive into the woods for some adventure, the chances of you taking a slam are ever prevalent, and always a possibility.  Between the massive amount of driver distractions and the joy of pushing your limits in the woods this handy device will give your family some peace of mind.

According to the national highway traffic safety administration, 48,000 cyclist were injured and 677 were killed in the United States in 2011.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

     The CRASH SENSOR is a piece of hardware/technology that detects speed, change of force and impact.  It syncs with a smart phone app and is triggered when the helmet meets a force that’s great enough to cause a concussion.  After the sensor has been triggered it starts a timer/alarm on your cell phone.  If you are unable to turn of the timer/alarm in the allotted time frame (up to 2 minutes) your phone will automatically send a map and your GPS coordinates to your emergency contacts.  You can set up multiple contacts and everyone on the list will receive the same message.  You start a free online profile with the information you would like a emergency responder to have, for example your name, blood type, allergens, insurance carrier, emergency contact name and number.  If anything were to happen to you this company can save valuable time for the paramedics and doctors.

 WHO IS ICEdot?

        ICEdot is an emergency ID and notification service innovating safety technology for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. ICEdot syncs a secure online profile with products such as a band, helmet stickers or it’s latest product, the Crash Sensor. In Case Of Emergency, ICEdot has the ability share predesignated health and geolocation information over sms/text.  For the premium membership is will cost you only $10 a year, the first year of service is included in the price of the band/crash sensor.

We currently are stocking “the  band” in all three sized for $20 and the “crash sensor” for $150
