The AK Autism band from MedicAlert is designed to be worn by adults and children with autism and communicate vital personal and medical details on their behalf in an emergency if they’re unable to do so for themselves.
MedicAlert is a charity that provides life-saving personal information for more than 300,000 people in the UK who have hidden medical conditions.
As a parent of 2 children with Autism, I know exactly the anxiety and stress that is caused when a person with autism disappears, gets injured or is in need of medical attention. Children with autism are often unable to communicate in such a situation. This MedicAlert band is a wonderful innovation that will enable emergency services and first-aiders to find out vital information when it matters.
MedicAlert is the only registered charity that provides a life-saving identification system for people with hidden medical conditions and allergies. In an emergency, medical personnel can immediately access information on the back of the disc. By phoning the emergency number, they can gain further personal personal and medical information.
The bands cost £24.95, plus first years membership at £30.00.
You can take the hassle out of renewing and ensure that you get continued membership by signing up for Direct Debit and you will receive a discount of £2.50.*
* Your first payment (for jewellery and first year’s membership) needs to be paid for by card or cheque.
