About us

StickyJ Medical ID and sister company Thoughtful Impressions have been family owned and operated for more than 23 years. The company is led by CEO Lori Torman, who has an eye for great quality and classic styles. In the early days of medical id bracelets (we're talking 1960's), medical alert bracelets were pretty boring -- basically engraved metal tags with curb link chains. The same styles were offered for children, just smaller (no wonder kids didn't want to wear them). And, by the end of the 20th century things hadn't improved that much. Lori was among the first to recognize that medical id's could be fashion conscious, and in 2005 launched designs in leather as well as stainless, and introduced polyester kids medical id bracelets that had cute designs. The sport strap line of child medical id's she introduced nearly 20 years ago is still the most popular line of children's medical jewelry on the market today, but now we've added Minecraft Medical ID bracelets for Kids and Adults, and we now produce more than 100 different styles of medical alert bracelets and necklaces for men and women. Our engraved bracelets are individually custom engraved by our team of master engravers, shipped within three (M-F) business days from the date you order, and all products come with a 90 warranty against manufacturing defects. Please come and shop with us today. It will be our pleasure to serve you.

Parkinson’s: Life Help & Engraving your Medical Bracelet

Parkinson’s: Life Help & Engraving your Medical Bracelet

Parkinson's Disease - Making it Easier

Parkinson’s Awareness Month

Parkinson’s is most known for the tremor in the hand, but that is just the beginning. The disease is a progressive disorder that affects movement via the nervous system. Nerve cells (neurons) break down due to the lack of Dopamine (a chemical messenger). Typically, movement slows and joints become stiff as Parkinson’s progresses. There is no cure for Parkinson’s yet. Medications that increase or pretend to be dopamine are used to improve symptoms and slow the diseases’ progression. Occasionally doctors will even operate on specific brain regions to ease symptoms.

Parkinson’s has no known cause but there are lots of factors and risk factors that may play a role.

Genes (mutations or variations)

Environmental Triggers (like the link with Agent Orange, herbicides, or pesticides)

Age (disease development generally starts after age 60)

Heredity (the more family members with Parkinson’s, the higher the chance)

Gender (Men are more likely to develop)

Here’s Your Sign:

Every person will exhibit different signs and symptoms of the disease. Most people experience symptoms on one side of the body that progress till eventually spreading to the other side.

Physical Motor symptoms: Slow Movement (bradykinesia), Balance Problems, Rigidity, Speech / Writing Changes, and the famous Tremor.

Other Common Symptoms : Sleep Disorders, Low Blood Pressure, Cognitive Changes, Loss of Smell, Dry Skin, and some Cognitive Changes.

Parkinson’s is not an uncommon disease, the United States has roughly a million people living with PD. Each year about 50,000 more are added to the list. Besides the tremor and some rigidity made best known by Michael J Fox, people may not recognize the symptoms of the disease. That is why it is so important to wear a Medical ID.

What should you engrave on your Medical Alert Bracelet or Necklace?

Line 1: Your Name (first & last)

Line 2: Parkinson’s (maybe an additional disease if needed)

Line 3: 000-000-0000 (emergency contact # , no name – just the #)

Line 4+ or on the back: ALLERGIES* , another ICE # , and “see wallet card”

– when listing allergies just write: “no” rather than ‘allergic to’ (i.e. no PCN, no codeine, no latex, etc)

– use lower case ; uppercase makes the ‘font size’ smaller

– medications change and frequently are too long to list. We offer a free medical wallet card that you can list meds and other information

Making Life Easier

Soap Pump for Parkinson's

It’s the little things in life, you wouldn’t think of, that becomes difficult. Washing hands can be made easier with a C-pump single handed soap dispenser.

Parkinson's Anti-gravity Treadmill

If you are lucky enough to live in the farthest East point of Massachusetts, the Function First Physical Therapy company has an anti-gravity treadmill they use for therapy! The treadmill can have you walking or running on just 20% of your body weight (which can be gradually increased if called for).

Coffee Mug for Parkinsons Patients

I believe that nothing should stop people from drinking their morning…afternoon…maybe even nightly coffee. This mug by Hand Steady can keep you caffeinated and spill free.

Making Pills Easier with Parkinson's

Having trouble remembering what pills to take when? For only .99 cents, you can get this Pillboxie app on your phone that lets you set reminders and schedules. This is a great way to keep a logged & detailed history for your doctor or in case of medical emergency.

Parkinson's Walker

What can’t be solved with laser beams?! This walker is designed specifically for people who have Parkinson’s Disease. If it weren’t helpful enough with all of the extra features, the creators of this U-Step walker added a laser sight to aid in balance.

Drink Dispenser to ease Parkinsons

No need to lift heavy milk or juice containers just for every drink. The Magic Tap acts like a fridge water dispenser but for anything you choose! It’s such a deal for what it allows you to do, I would highly recommend this product.

Easy Nail Clippers

Nail clipping with Parkinson’s is not only difficult, it’s potentially dangerous. Keeping nails long can lead to scratches and pain too. These one handed clippers make nail clipping easier without a trip to the salon.

Easy Straw for Parkinson's Patients

This was a great idea by a Special-Ed teacher to keep straws from wandering around a cup; ever eluding the tongue! If the disease has progressed, oral motor capabilities can decrease making activities like drinking from a straw hard. This straw holder idea can help.
