About us

StickyJ Medical ID and sister company Thoughtful Impressions have been family owned and operated for more than 21 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. 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, ship 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.

Should I Wear a Medical Alert Bracelet?

Should I Wear a Medical Alert Bracelet?

Do I need to wear a Medical ID Bracelet?

Medical ID Bracelets alert paramedics and EMT’s to a specific medical or allergic condition when they’re about to start emergency treatment. Wearing a medical id bracelet or medical alert pendant is critical if your illnesses might render you unable to speak or unconscious. The goal is for fast and correct treatment, and to help ensure you won’t receive a medication you’re allergic to.

Did you make our list?

DIABETES | EPILEPSY | ALLERGIES (food, penicillin, medication, stinging insects) | ALZHEIMER’S | AUTISM | BLOOD DISORDERS (hemophilia) | CEREBRAL PALSY | VISION IMPAIRED | HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE (hypertension)| ADD/ADHD | STROKE | PACEMAKER | ASTHMA | COPD | KIDNEY FAILURE (dialysis) | MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS | HEART DISEASE | PARKINSON’S | ATRIAL FIBRILLATION | VON WILLEBRAND’S | CYSTIC FIBROSIS | LYMPHEDEMA | HEARING IMPAIRED (cochlear implant) | MENTAL HEALTH DISORDER | NO MRI | CANCER | ADRENAL INSUFFICIENCY | TBI | HEART STENT | CARE TAKER | ORGAN TRANSPLANT/DONOR | ARRHYTHMIA | WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY | HYPOTHYROIDISM | KIDS with SPECIAL NEEDS | ON MULTIPLE MEDICATIONS / TAKING COUMADIN or WARFARIN | PREGNANT

A medical id speaks for you when you can’t.

What should I engrave on my Medical Alert Bracelet?

4 key components:

  • DIAGNOSIS/ CONDITION
  • ALLERGIES (if any)
  • NAME
  • EMERGENCY CONTACT

Example:

Diabetes

No PCN / P-nuts

John Smith

999-000-9090

What should you leave off?

Address (unless they have dementia) and social security number.

– NOTE: There’s no substitute for the advice of a medical professional. We want to get you started, but your doctor should be the final recommendation for what to engrave.

– Most of our medical ID bracelets can be engraved on front & back if you’d rather engrave diagnoses/allergies on the front and keep Personal Information out of sight.

– Keep it simple: watch upper/lower case, use abbreviations when possible, leave extraneous words out (i.e. “allergic to penicillin” –> No PCN or “Taking Coumadin” –> coumadin)

– Engrave “see other side” or “see wallet card” if you have more to say than can fit on the medical alert bracelet.

I need something for KIDS or an ACTIVE LIFESTYLE!

You won’t stop moving and you need a medical alert bracelet that can keep up with you.
