For more than 40 years, MedicAlert has been providing a life-saving identification system for people with hidden medical conditions.
This takes the form of body-worn bracelets or necklets (known as Emblems) which carry the MedicAlert symbol as well as an Individual ID number and 24 hour emergency number. The emergency number is accessible in more than 100 languages and enables emergency personnel to access to Medical records in an emergency.

Chris Lunn from MedicAlert says:-
‘There are now more than 280,000 members of MedicAlert in the UK who benefit from this service. We are very pleased to say that along with the traditional identification jewellery you can now purchase sportsbands, designer bracelets, necklets and also the MedicAlert watch.
MedicAlert also works extremely hard to ensure that emergency personnel recognise the Emblem and are able to react accordingly in an emergency situation.
