JACKSON HOLE, WYO \u2013 A Wyoming entrepreneur and business owner has launched a wearable medical device that could save lives and revolutionize emergency response situations.\r\n\r\nRemember medical alert bracelets? Think of Lifekey as a high-tech, next-gen version of that.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWith just a tap, Lifekey\u2019s wearable devices work in combination with the Lifekey app to provide access to personal data including identification and emergency contacts, as well as medical data such as blood type, allergies, prescriptions, insurance information and more. Lifekey enables first responders, family and friends to access health information that quickly becomes critical in worst-case scenarios, and helps people stay connected with their loved ones.\r\n\r\nFor instance, when activated by a responder, Lifekey notifies the wearer\u2019s emergency contacts and shares location information instantly.\r\n\r\nThe device is the latest brand development to come out of Wyoming whiz kid Jason Kintzler. The founder and CEO of Lifekey is also the man who launched Pitchengine, a web-based public relations and marketing software company utilizing cutting edge new media tools. Kintzler also started up and operated Buckrail\u00a0for four years before selling it to Jackson-based TMBR in late 2017.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cOur technology is highly versatile, and is being developed as a global platform,\u201d Kintzler said. \u201cIt allows first responders to have immediate, potentially life-saving access to personal safety information in emergency situations, but can also be just as critical in enabling a parent to locate their child or help reunite a family with their pet. Lifekey provides safety, connection and peace of mind.\u201d\r\n\r\nAccording to SGB Media, Lifekey wearables are designed for all walks of life and built for all kinds of environments, from a scheduled visit to the doctor, to an emergency situation on the playing field, trail or slopes. User groups range from medical professionals, to sports organizations, to employers with remote workers and more.\r\n\r\nThe company\u2019s initial product offering includes three connected device styles: a silicone Wristband, a Micro Tag that doubles as a zipper pull, and an adhesive, fabric Smart Patch. Designed for performance, each device is waterproof, durable and doesn\u2019t require batteries or charging. Using the Lifekey app, users can lock their data, manage and share it as they see fit. In an emergency, designated contacts are also able to grant temporary access to responders.\r\n\r\nAll three Lifekey devices are available for sale online, and the Lifekey app is available now for both Android and iOS.\r\n\r\nRead more about Lifekey in this Wyoming Business Report story.
