Disappointment with medical bracelet...
Just want to post our own personal experience so other's can make an informed decision. We bought the American Medical ID bracelet in April 2007 for DS with PA. After just a few months it is barely readable! The wording is not "engraved" but in black ink that has worn off. I was shocked to discover this as we were on a trip to an amusement park at the time (not the time I wanted to see that his bracelet was not holding up!). Yes, I was being cheap at the time I ordered because the Medical Alert was so expensive, this seemed like a good alternative. Live and learn!!!
I don't think my son is any more active than any other child his age (5), so I don't think that is the problem. I had done a search on this site and read that some were happy with this company, but I just wanted to let people know our experience. I'll be searching for a replacement!
