SOS medical bracelets are worn by people to alert responders to an underlying medical condition. These include conditions such as autism, diabetes, anaphylaxes and other life-threatening allergies. Paramedics have been trained to first look for SOS bracelets before offering emergency care to patients. This way if you have been diagnosed with a medical condition like diabetes or epilepsy, the paramedic can immediately administer the appropriate form of treatment.
People with low blood sugar or high blood pressure can quickly slip out of consciousness and the presence of a bracelet can often be crucial. These SOS bands are available in a wide variety of designs and can be elegantly made to blend with your chosen attire. They contain an inner compartment where a waterproof paper can be kept that contains details of the wearerâs identity and any medical conditions.
The bracelets can also be customised to fit your wrist size by splicing out the extra links. The above collection from eBay features a variety of SOS medical bracelets for various medical conditions.
Each bracelet included in the list has been designed and styled in a particular way to cater to all kinds of preferences. These include gold plated talismans, wooden beaded bracelets, hippy styled bracelets, stainless steel bracelets and unisex two-tone metal bracelets.
