Stroke Survivor Medical ID
Medical ID & Bracelet For Stroke
A stroke is a sudden 'brain attack' that occurs when the blood flow to part of the brain is cut off. Usually, this is due to a blood clot but it can also be due to a bleed. It is vital that anyone treating you knows as quickly as possible whether your stroke history is from clots or bleeds to ensure that the treatment you are given does not increase the risk or severity of a stroke, for example by administering anticoagulants to someone with a history of bleeds,
Strokes vary in their intensity and severity, consequently their effects vary from relatively minor to very severe. A stroke medical ID is the best way to communicate if you are on your own and unable to speak for yourself in an emergency. Our bracelets and necklaces feature the well-known medical alert symbol and can be engraved with your details, so they can speak for you when you can’t.
There are lots of medical IDs to choose from so you can select the style that best suits you and your lifestyle, with choices from casual to more stylish designs. To help you choose, we’ve curated a stroke range of medical IDs where you'll find ID cards, wristbands, necklaces and bracelets as well as handy medicine bags. Our bracelets and necklaces feature the well-known medical alert symbol and can be engraved with your details.
Your stroke(s) may have led to a range of difficulties or may be caused by another serious medical condition, so our stroke range includes medical IDs that allow you to engrave up to 5 lines of text so you can cover all your conditions, or you could choose to list additional information on a medical ID card.
All prices include free engraving and free UK mainland delivery.
What Should You Put on a Stroke Medical ID?
It is always best to consult with your doctor or specialist to decide what to engrave on your stroke medical ID. In the event that this is not possible, we have taken advice from the lovely doctors at Concierge Medical (the multi award-winning private GP service for the Cotswolds and surrounding areas) and recommend the following:
As a minimum, you should put the following on your medical ID:
- Your stroke diagnosis, e.g. ischaemic, haemorrhagic.
- Any severe impairments, e.g. difficulty speaking.
- Your primary ICE (in case of emergency) number.
You may also want to include the following:
- Your name.
- Any other severe medical conditions (including allergies).
- Any medications you may be on.
- “See medical card” (if you choose to carry a medical ID card in your phone case or wallet).
If you choose a stroke medical ID bracelet that can be engraved on both the front and the back, we recommend that you engrave your medical information on the front and your personal information (name and ICE) on the back.
General advice on engraving:
- Information should relate to conditions not otherwise discoverable by examination of an unconscious or incapacitated patient.
- Important medications should be listed.
- Information should be relevant to life-saving or emergency treatment.
- Avoid using general terms, e.g. “Allergies: bee stings, nuts” is much more useful than just “Allergies”.
Soft, silicone wristbands are a popular choice for a stroke medical ID as they’re comfortable and convenient to wear throughout the day and evening, indoors and out. We have many different colours you can choose from with inside engraving or outside engraving and we also offer smaller wristbands for children. Our Velcro and Silicone ranges are great if you like to stay active.
We also have a huge range of bracelets to choose from: from everyday wear to special occasions. Our Slim Traditional Medical ID Bracelet is a traditional choice and comes in a choice of finishes. Our modern medical bracelets with clasp are a popular choice with six colours to choose from and plenty of room for your engraving.
As well as our bracelets, we also offer watch style SOS Talismans that allow the wearer to write their details onto an information strip and store inside the SOS capsule, great for individuals whose details or medications might change frequently.
If you would prefer to wear a necklace, our stroke dog tags offer a subtle and stylish way to display important data. Choose from brushed steel or coloured designs created for men and women.
It’s not always easy to persuade little ones to wear medical IDs so we have a great range of stroke medical IDs for children: from colourful silicone bands to fabric wristbands and necklaces. Many of our engravable medical ID bracelets are also available in a variety of sizes from 5 inches (12.7cm) to suit even young children.
Stroke Medicine bags and ID Cards
If you regularly carry medication, our medicine bags and carry cases are perfect for keeping your medication safe. They're also great for traveling and when you go on holiday.
As well as your stroke alert jewellery, it's also a good idea to have a medical ID card for your wallet or phone. This allows you to carry more detailed information with you, such as your address and NHS number. If you purchase one of our ID cards alongside a necklace or bracelet, we normally advise having 'see medical card' engraved on your chosen piece of jewellery.
