Medical Bracelets

Medical Bracelets

So I am thinking on a medical bracelet, after seizure couple days ago ,mainly for piece of mind …
Now that I am not driving and will be in public on my own sometimes.

Any suggestions? I’m active , walking, outdoors .. maybe silicone ?
Any websites?

Is there help for people who are on no income currently?

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , Go to www.dannydid.org & click on the box in the top right corner & then click where it says “Devices” & then scroll down a little bit & you’ll see something about a Grant Application for some of the devices that it has listed just a little further down on that page. So you could apply for a grant to help pay for one of those devices. Just make sure to read it carefully & that the device you pick you can use that grant. This is through The Danny Did Foundation.

Medic Alert is the standard, with a bracelet and an ID card with UPC code so emergency response can access your info quickly if needed. It was a must for me right away, as I am allergic to Dilantin. But it’s saved me many times because all someone had to do was call a number in an emergency.

Theres actually some really good bracelets out there that have qr codes, so someone just needs to have smart phone and scan the qr code to access medical informations. Where u can write down more info if needed than the small bracelets usually have space for, if u need more content. Giving info such as meds being used, and doses, as well as allergies. details regarding the med conditions, who to call in case of emergency, etc. And when qr codes scanned people on contact will be alerted
