This Leather Medical ID is for people who don't want an ID that screams 'condition'. It is sometimes difficult to encourage children, teens and adults to wear some kind of Medical ID as they don't want to stand out from the crowd.
They are fun and subtle, yet display vital and potentially life-saving information.
The Wristband looks like a festival bracelet so it is popular with teenagers and young adults (and older adults!)
It is comfortable and lightweight, made of soft leather, embossed with two Medical Alert Symbols and wording of your selected medical condition.
The design is subtle enough not to bring unnecessary attention, but for any Medical Emergency Personnel, the medical condition is clearly displayed on the leather. A name and emergency contact number can be written on the inside of the Wristband with a Permanent Pen.The wristband is available in 2 sizes:
1cm x 20cm (S/M) , fastening at 16cm and 18cm and will fit most children and 'small build' teenagers/adults (fits wrist 15cm - 17.5cm)
1cm x 23cm (L/XL) , fastening at 19cm and 21cm and will fit 'larger build' teenagers/adults (fits wrist 18cm - 20.5cm)
Tip: we recommend when measuring your wrist add up to 1cm to this to choose your size.
The Emergency Medical Alert Symbol is universally recognised when worn by someone, to alert Medical Emergency Personnel to medical conditions. For this reason all our Medical ID Wristbands and Keyrings have the Medical Alert Symbol embossed on the leather.
Medical Emergency Personnel are trained to first check pulse points (wrist and neck) for the Medical Alert Symbol and details of a medical condition. If no medical information is found at pulse points they will then check in other places, such as keyrings, wallets and purses.
The medical condition is the most important information they need so that prompt and correct treatment can be given.
It is also useful to have details such as name of the person and an emergency contact telephone number. This can be written with a Permanent Pen on the inside of the Wristband or on the card stored inside the Keyring. We recommend Staedtler Permanent Pens for this.
