How is medical information displayed on a medical alert bracelet?
The medical information you input will be engraved on your medical ID with a laser in our USA-based facility. With our high-quality engraving it is easy to read your medical information.
What do I put on a medical bracelet?
You can engrave your name and then any life-saving medical information. This is typically conditions, medications, and allergies, that may affect your medical treatment in an emergency (for example, Hemophilia or Penicillin Allergy). The engraving space is fully customizable to fit your needs so you can include other information, such as emergency contacts and more.
What if I can’t fit all the required conditions on the medical ID bracelet?
First start by checking if there are any commonly known abbreviations for any conditions or medications you have listed, for example, “Type 2 Diabetes” can be engraved as “T2D.” Other alternatives include shopping for another medical ID that features more engraving space to ensure all your information is included or utilizing an expandable wallet card. The expandable wallet card is a folding medical ID accessory that fits in wallets or purses and contains extra space to write and update your medical information. If you choose to use an expandable wallet card, make sure to engrave on your medical ID “See Wallet Card” so emergency responders will know to find that to understand all your medical information.
