A medical alert bracelet is worn around the wrist. It has information about your identity and your medical condition. This can help emergency care providers know right away how to help you if you are not able to talk.
Information about you and your emergency contacts can be etched on the bracelet. Or you may prefer a medical alert necklace.
An adult or child may want to wear medical alert jewelry if he or she has an ongoing medical condition, has food or drug allergies, or is taking multiple medicines.
