Does anyone wear one? Is it something that I should consider? X

Hi :)

I have a medical bracelet with my conditions and name on in case anything happens to me and I am taken to hospital.
It is just a bit of piece of mind for both me and my partner when I am out on my own. Got it on Ebay.


:) Hoping everyone is having a low pain day :-)

They are called various names including SOS bracelets you can record any medical history or allergies. I think they are a good idea.

I'm registered with Medic Alert. I've always used them. It's great knowing that any emergency crew can just ring the number on my bracelet state my membership number and will be given all relevant details xXx

Medic Alert is the one that I would go with as everything about you is located in computer files that the hospital and emergency services have access to. I should wear one myself but haven't got round to it. Time to make that a change in my life. Oh! and they can be purchased in gold, silver and hypoallergenic if I remember right. Apologies if I'm mistaken.

I've worn a SOS bracelet for the last 5 years, wouldn't be without it.
