The summer sports season is well and truly over now and its time for a bit of rest and recuperation. Its also a good time to look back on the season that was. One stand out was the number of cycling accidents. In the expat rides in Beijing there was a broken leg, broken arm, and even a broken neck and a whole bunch of smaller accidents. In the Chinese riding circles there were also a number of fatalities this year cycling in Beijing. It’s dangerous out there on the roads and we all need to take care and be prepared for the worst.
We’ve organised the printing of ID bands which you can wear on your wrist while you cycle or even when you are running or walking.
In the case you have an accident and cannot function normally the band provides emergency details which could be a lifesaver.
Available for 180 RMB Pre-order.
Here is a sample :
Each band has your personal details on it. The bands can be either red (so they are noticeable) or black (as pictured) and are made from a rubber material which is very durable and easily cleaned. The details are engraved on a stainless steel plate for durability. Delivery is usually within a few weeks.
What you print on each line is up to you. See the image below for a sample of what we suggest you print.
The 6th line is blank and up to you. You can write your own text in there.
Here are a few suggestions based on what others have written in the past :
(Beijing United Family Hospital)
(International SOS Beijing)
(Sino Japanese Friendship hospital)
A list of other popular hospitals with english and chinese can be found here.
In the past we have also suggested listing blood type. Hospitals will check your blood type before any procedure so this is not so necessary unless you are O- type which is rare in China (listing this could give advance warning to hospital). It has also been suggested to write any allergies and medications in Chinese which might be difficult to translate in an emergency. Its also important to have your insurance policy number listed so that insurance companies can be contacted ASAP.
