I have non epileptic seizures and I would like to get some peoples opinion about different types of medical Id bracelets/necklaces or anything that is similar compared to getting a service dog.
I have a Medic Alert bracelet for a long time and i guess it works when i am alone and have a seizure. But a member from this site recommended to get a My ID bracelet also which i am very satisfied to have. For years the Medic Alert bracelet offers a short information and a number to call to get more information on my status. With a My ID bracelet, you are given a barcode that is attached to your bracelet. So, when i have a seizure EMT's can scan the barcode and get my list of medication i am taking and other health notes. I am not as cautious as before when i am out because the barcode can give info when i can't. For more information on My ID, go to this link, https://www.getmyid.com/
I have a medical ID. When I first received it, I wore it all the time. I had the necklace, but it irritated my skin. I received a bracelet this was irritating too. I finally found one on the internet made od rubber, it has a square on the inside that you take a picture of it, and your medical shows up on a mobile device. It works but you have to replace it every few year because yhe square wears away.
I recently purchased an apple watch with GPS and fall detection, I want to see if my emergency contacts and ambulance is notified immediately. I only had the watch for two weeks. So far, I have not passed out in the streets of Philadelphia to test it.
I will let you know what happens…
Hi ,I have absences & seizures frequently. The best ID bracelet I had was an elasticated metal one , the next I had, had ' epilepsy ' written on & 3 ICE numbers on the reverse.The problem I have with it is the ID tag drops to the underside of my wrist as it's a loose curb chain
