For kids with serious ongoing health issues like food allergies or juvenile diabetes, a medical ID bracelet is a necessity. But, getting a kid to wear a bracelet that labels him or her as “different” can be challenging.
Medical ID Marketplace aims to make medical ID bracelets more appealing to kids by providing a range of fun child-friendly designs. They have bracelets for both boys and girls.
There are delicate chain link styles, as well as casual stainless steel mesh bracelets, colorful rubber watches, and funky beaded bracelets for teens. The bracelets can be personalized with whatever information your child requires.
My son does not have any medical issues that would require a bracelet. But, if he did, I’d definitely be looking into one of these bracelet styles. Even in first grade, his classmates were eager to latch onto differences and start the kind of teasing that makes sensitive kids very uncomfortable. A medical bracelet that looked like fashionable jewelry would go a long way towards helping a child be more comfortable in that type of environment.
Another thing I like about the products at Medical ID Marketplace is that some of the proceeds go to charity. For the autism bracelet shown in this post, for example, a portion of the proceeds go to support autism research.
In addition to medical ID bracelets, Medical ID Marketplace also sells products such as stickers and lunch bag tags that can be used to alert babysitters, teachers, coaches, and other adults of any food allergies or health concerns your child might have.
Does your child have any health concerns that require a medical ID bracelet? If so, what do you think of these products?
