Mediband Receives Finalist Nomination for the Premier’s NSW Export Award

SYDNEY – Wednesday 29 September, 2010 – Australian company, Mediband, developers of the Mediband range of medical ID wristbands and Mediband Plus medical information portal are pleased to announce that they have been selected as finalists in the Australian Institute of Export Premier's NSW Export Awards. The Premier’s NSW Export Awards are designed to showcase the State’s top exporters and by doing so, promote them as role models, encouraging other businesses to strive for the same levels of success in world markets.

“It’s such an accolade to be nominated as a finalist in the Emerging Exporter category. We’re just thrilled to be selected as a finalist in such a prestigious awards program, which does so much to promote the achievements made by Australian companies in the ever increasing export marketplace,” commented Michael Randall, Managing Director and Co-founder of Mediband.

“With so many Australians dying each year as a result of allergic reactions, anaphylactic shock, heart attacks, incorrectly administered drugs and other preventable medical conditions, we feel sure that Mediband’s range of medical ID ‘alert’ products can go a small way to preventing deaths in Australia, but also in other countries around the world,” he added.

As Peter Mace, General Manager, Australian Institute of Export noted in the finalist launch announcement, “We congratulate all the companies that have been selected as a finalist for the 2010 Premier’s NSW Export Awards. Being recognised as a leading exporter against the best from the across the state is testament to their hard work and success in overseas markets. We wish them all the best for the awards night at Star City on the 28th October.”

The Mediband range of wristbands have been designed specifically to enable people with allergies or medical conditions to ensure that pertinent information about their health is readily accessible, should they ever need emergency treatment. In this way, paramedics, emergency workers, medical professionals and even colleagues, family and friends would have access to vital information about the patient – information that could help to save their life.

The Mediband team has also created a Mediband wallet card, which can be used to document all medical details or known allergies. The wearer can choose to wear an easily recognisable wristband with their medical details, or can wear a simple band which indicates that they carry a wallet card.

The Mediband range also includes custom designed bands which can be used to record parent’s telephone numbers and other key information. There are also customised, reversible bands which offer a ‘groovier’ approach and enable the wearer to carry their medical details more discreetly, but still readily accessible in case of emergency.

“I’d like to think that our Medibands can not only save the lives of people all over the world, but can go a long way to giving peace of mind to people who have allergies and other fatal medical conditions. It’s all about less worry and more living,” Mr Randall concluded.
