Alright, I have another medical alert bracelet to review and this one’s super awesome. This is actually the bracelet that I asked to review when I was given the opportunity to review the Sabona one as well. This one took me a bit longer because there were some things I wanted to test out before I could accurately post a review. Anyway, here goes…..
Packaging: Standard plastic wrapping, instructions included (it didn’t come with that box, though)
This thing is super durable, super easy to use, and super versatile It’s sporty and, while appears large and awkwardly shaped, is no more intrusive than a watch. There is the medical alert symbol on the front (which I wear on the inside of my wrist) and C.A.R.E on the back (shows on top of my wrist) and the inside reads, “Plug into a USB port for my medical history” and the website for the manufacturer, “www.MedicalHistoryBracelet.com”.
According to the website that sells these bad boys (well, one of them), these bracelets are waterproof despite their natural, um… hate for water… they ARE little USB drives and all. As far as the waterproof thing goes, I have submerged my arm in my fish tank with this on, I have washed dishes/bottles/kid cups with this on and it got all wet and there has been no problems so far. I still can’t bring myself to shower with it on, but I’m sure it wouldn’t be a problem seeing as how it’s been submerged and it was fine.
If you can’t tell from the picture, there is a medical alert symbol on the front of the bracelet (which comes in a bunch of different colors and styles, btw) and then that’s it as far as outward medical labels go. This is good because it’s not only versatile BUT it’s also private.
Okay, so once you get past the exterior (which is made of some cool latex-free plastic-y material), you get the actual programming (3.0 e-manager something or other), which looks like this (Oh yeah, there are screenshots)
I feel like that’s pretty comprehensive, actually. I love that there is a spot for a photo. I feel like it’s a great “just in case” feature. I also LOVE that I can add files and profiles.
I would say that this is a must have for ANYONE with a medical condition. It’s a great way to keep basic, necessary medical files and info in one place (for everyone!) It’s sporty design is durable, great for everyday use, isn’t too great for cocktail parties (black dress and plastic medical alert bracelet? not so much), but is sure to suit your every day needs. If plastic-y material isn’t your thing, there are a lot of really pretty ones (including this one that I love!) on the website that are more delicate, yet still keep the USB functionality.
This bay boy sells for 29.95USD on Elegant Medical Alert’s website.
