If you have one or more serious conditions, a medical ID bracelet could save your life. Worn on the pulse point and displaying the International Medical Symbol, they communicate when you can't and will make sure you get the adequate treatment you need. Medical ID bracelets are readily available for a number of conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes, asthma and a range of allergies, but you can also purchase customised bracelets to make sure all your medical needs are covered. While some bracelets are engraved, others contain a storage card allowing you to update your personal information more easily. The latter is particularly useful for anyone whose medication tends to change regularly or whose conditions cannot be easily inscribed. As well as stainless steel versions of the bracelet (some with a gold finish), you'll also find an array of child-friendly designs with varying straps and clasps, from those that use Velcro to others that stretch over the wrist. So, while the nature of the bracelet is serious, you can have a bit of fun with it at the same time to make it a fashion accessory you like to wear â after all, it could prove very useful one of these days.
