Mommy I Want a Tattoo - Other Medical Alert Bracelet Options
Posted Jan 22 2009 6:37pm
(no, thankfully not that type of tattoo)
Since posting about Conor's dream of a red medical alert bracelet for his birthday, I thought I would let all of you know about some other exciting options I found if a traditional medical alert bracelet is not the identification of choice for your child.
Before starting this ride on the i nternet super highway, I did not realize there were other creative options out there. The two most interesting I found were the temporary tattoos, and the silicone bracelets.
“They're kid-friendly with an image to delight every child...Still, it's not the design that makes the difference. Instead, it's the digits that help reconnect lost kids and their families. But the Safety Tats don't stop with the number. You can even customize them if your kid has special needs or health issues. Tattoos highlighting everything from diabetes to autism are available. There's even a tattoo for kids with peanut allergies or for kids on a field trip with their school. ”
These are totally customizable silicone bracelets. They come in many colors, and you can choose your own symbols(including many medical alert ones), and custom text on both the outside and inside of the band.
These are not customizable, but do get the general message across.
So there you have it folks. We still love our Medic Alert bracelet, and Conor will be utterly thrilled to get his new red one on his birthday. If however, you are searching for a different and exciting way to tell the world (and especially medical personnel ) about your child's medical condition check these out.
