A QR Code is a type of two-dimensional barcode that consisting of an array of black and white squares, typically used for storing URLs or other information for reading by the camera on a smartphone using a QR code reader application. They look like this ….
Many smartphones have a QR reader pre-loaded and virtually all can download one. But you don't need a QR reader app to use Etagz and neither does the emergency responder. If the person who needs your Emergency Contact Information (access to your MEDWALL) doesn't have one, they can just type in OUR website URL and enter the unique code found on your tag or sticker.
A MEDWALL is a personal web page that is linked to your Etagz QR code and immediately displays the CRITICAL medical information you choose to include when your Etag is scanned. When a EMT or First Responder or anyone Scans your Etag they immediately gain access to your CRITICAL medical information which you choose to make visible to them.
When the QR code on your Etag is scanned they can get access to your name, emergency contacts, medications, blood type, any medical issues you may have, any physical injury you may have sustained in the past and any other critical information you would like them to have in case of an emergency. This information can make all the difference when you're hurt and unable to answer questions yourself. YOU DECIDE what information you want displayed including emergency contacts and details on any medical conditions such as allergies, medications you're currently taking or conditions like Asthma, Autism, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy and .........
They simply go to www.Etagz.net via their phone browser as they would any other website and enter the personal code printed on your tag or sticker, and your personal record details will appear to aid them.
There are a number of FREE QR code apps in the iTunes Store for Apple iPhones or in the Google Play store for Android QR Tags. The E-tag QR Code will work with any app hat can read a QR code. You can obtain them from:
Most QR Code scanners are easy to use and very efficient and most of them are free. Choose a free version which has no restrictions or locked features. It will automatically detect and decode the QR code.
The service with E-tags does require a 3G, 4G or WiFi coverage to be able to display ECI (Emergency Contact Information). Almost all First Responders and Emergency Personnel have some sort of internet access. However, we are also working on a solution for this and plan to create a Text Messaging application / tool to address this in the near future.
Yes, they are. QR codes are used in many different ways. The biggest use is for marketing to gain information about products, get a coupon or even purchase something. Etagz has repurposed QR Codes for this type of emergency medical use and first responders are increasingly trained to look for medical tags labeled Etagz
Yes, it is. At Etagz we will NEVER provide that information to anyone except for the display of your MEDWALL to someone scanning your personal QR Code. However, because the system is designed to be easily accessible by first responders the information in your MEDWALL is visible to anyone who scans your QR code or enters your tag number using the URL, so you should not put onto your MEDWALL located in your Etagz profile, any information that you DO NOT want a member of the public to see. The information displayed is totally in your control and you can change the information as often as you like.
To be clear, your Etagz profile account details are kept separate from your personal MEDWALL. And your Etagz MEDWALL is never revealed to anyone other than someone accessing your personal QR Coded Medical Tag such as a First Responder.
Absolutely. Anytime as many times as you would like. Simply Log In to your Etagz profile, click on the MEDWALL tab and in the box below Medical Information write the critical medical information you want to appear when your e-tag is scanned.

We take security serious and hold all information you provide securely. We will never sell your individual account details (name, postcode, gender, DOB and email address) to third parties. However, we may share your account details with the retailer from whom you purchased your product, and may share this data, anonymized and aggregated to provide product and industry reports. For example, the proportion of females aged 21-30 who purchase Wearable Etagz.. To be clear, your account details are kept separate from your personal MEDWALL which is never revealed to anyone other than someone accessing your personal QR Code such as a first responder.
Absolutely not. Your Emergency Contact Information isn’t held on your phone so there is no way to get the information from just bumping your phone.
