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

On Das Medizin Blog, 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."
