While we can’t stop accidents and emergencies from happening, we can provide cyclists with a service that can send an SMS to their loved ones if they ever run into trouble out on the road. That’s why we created MiFile, a wristband with a difference. If you’re ever in an emergency, anyone can log onto the MiFile website and access your profile using the unique ID on your wristband – this allows them to send an SMS to your loved ones as well as alert emergency services to any specific health and care requirements you may have.
