Since posting about Conor's dream of a red medical alert bracelet for his birthday, I thought I would let all of you know about some other exciting options I found if a traditional medical alert bracelet is not the identification of choice for your child.
Before starting this ride on the internet super highway, I did not realize there were other creative options out there. The two most interesting I found were the temporary tattoos, and the silicone bracelets.
Safety Tats don't stop with the number. You can even customize them if your kid has special needs or health issues. Tattoos highlighting everything from diabetes to autism are available. There's even a tattoo for kids with peanut allergies or for kids on a field trip with their school. ”
Medical Tottoos are printed with the widely recognized medic alert symbol and can be customized with up to 3 lines of text, 25 characters per line, including spaces.
Design a Band
These are totally customizable silicone bracelets. They come in many colors, and you can choose your own symbols(including many medical alert ones), and custom text on both the outside and inside of the band.
These are not customizable, but do get the general message across.
So there you have it folks. We still love our Medic Alert bracelet, and Conor will be utterly thrilled to get his new red one on his birthday. If however, you are searching for a different and exciting way to tell the world (and especially medical personnel) about your child's medical condition check these out.
