For more than 18 years, StickyJ Medical ID has been providing customers around the globe with a quality selection of medical alert bracelets and as such, we’ve learned what it is that our customers are looking for when purchasing their medical ID.
For starters, StickyJ Medical ID shoppers want a medical ID that can bring attention to the health issues that are most dangerous and impactful to their health in an emergency situation. As such, StickyJ Medical ID has created an entire product line of medical jewelry pre-engraved with specific conditions including Epilepsy, Diabetes, Asthma, Alzheimer’s, and Lymphedema. Much of the items in the specific conditions category have the room available for additional engraving on the back side. You’ll want to consider including any items you’re allergic to, a reference to or list of any medications you take and emergency contact information including phone numbers and names and their relationship to you.
For those persons with a large number of medical issues, we’ll say 3 or more – you may want to consider getting the text: See Wallet Card engraved onto your medical ID, then order one of StickyJ Medical ID’s aluminum wallet cards which are large enough to hold more than 8 lines of text on each side.
