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.

The Importance of Medical ID Bracelets for Food Allergies

2nd Jun 2022

Medical ID Bracelet + Food Allergies = Great Combination

Food allergies are on the rise in the US. Peanut allergies have more than doubled in recent years, and it seems as though the number of people reporting allergies grows every year. While many people think of food allergies as just a case of food “not sitting right,” the fact is that certain allergies can be deadly. Even for adults who are well aware of their allergies, it is critical that medical ID bracelets indicating an allergy are worn at all times.

The FDA lists 8 foods that are most commonly associated with allergies. These include eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, wheat, soy, tree nuts, soy and shellfish. While some people may only experience a mild allergic reaction, others can experience anaphylaxis, which can cause respiration to slow and the throat to close up. For these more severe cases, immediate medical attention is required.

So, why should an able-bodied adult wear a medical ID bracelet that lists any known food allergies? Allergens can be found in foods without your realizing it. If you have a severe allergy to fish, and there is cross-contamination, you could ingest enough fish to make you sick. This is very often the case with peanuts. By wearing an ID bracelet, anyone who is in the area to help you can take appropriate steps. First responders look for ID bracelets, and use that information to make an on-site diagnosis.

Even if you think that you are able to speak for yourself when it comes to food allergies, remember that all it takes is a mix-up in a restaurant kitchen to cause an allergic reaction. Wearing an ID bracelet ensures that you are always able to explain your medical conditions, even when you can’t speak.
