999card is a replacement for medical id bands, it helps just the same people who wear the bands. Anyone who has a serious medical or allergic condition would benefit from the card, not only does it show details of their condition on the front of the card but the software on the card contains their complete medical history enabling medical staff to give the cardholder the best possible medical treatment.
In addition to those users who have medical or allergic conditions the card would benefit cyclists or motorcyclists who may need them in case of emergency, also those involved in extreme sports could also benefit from carrying a card.
The number of people in the UK who could benefit from carrying a card is considerable to say the list, below is a list of the types of people who could benefit, it is certainly not an exhaustive list:
Over 3 million with diabetes
Over 1 million with severe allergies
600,000 with epilepsy

50,000 with asplenia
500,000 with a pacemaker
5,000 with hereditary angiodema
1 million motorcyclists
3 million cyclists
3 million participate in extreme sports
Given the fact that some people will fall into more than one category there are over 15 million people who could directly benefit from the card in the UK
In addition to these people who would benefit from carrying a card charities will also benefit from the cards, for every card that is sold £5 (20% of the purchase price) is given to the charity of the purchasers choice, if the buyer does not have a specific charity they would like to support 999card has a nominated monthly charity, this month it is the Air Ambulance Service.
