Medical ID bracelets and other jewelry are lifesavers —alerting caregivers immediately to medical conditions — but they only work if people are willing to wear them.
Until recently, medical ID bracelets were available but were unattractive and “clunky” and particularly unappealing to children, teens and young adults.
Now there is an alternative — stylish bracelets and pendants customized to fit a wearer’s need, said Patricia Bernstein with Bernstein & Associates, Inc.
Hope Paige Designs has collaborated with the Bashas’ store in Payson to display samples of the medical ID “jewelry” at the pharmacy counter along with brochures for ordering online or by phone.
Designs range from colorful rubber, mesh, crystal, bead and rope designs. Hope Paige Designs also offers traditional styles options.
Each medical ID jewelry carries the Medical Alert symbol and is customized at no additional charge with engraved information about the medical condition of the wearer.
Medical ID jewelry is recommended for anyone who suffers from a range of chronic conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, blood disorders, heart disease, and severe drug, food or insect allergies — in case he or she requires emergency medical care and is incapacitated and unable to explain their condition.
“Our company recognized the importance and lifesaving value of medical bracelets,” says Shelly Fisher. “That’s why it was so important to create styles that people actually want to wear.”
