Medic alert style "livestrong" bands?

are they available?
Do EMTs/paramedics look for them?
If so..where can I get one? (in the UK)

what i did was a google search for personalized baller bands. you can create your own. my daughter plays feild hockey and tennis so they are really good for sports she rarely has any problems wearing them during a match. also, i have seen one that says stop peanut allergy or something along those lines i will look for the website and post it for you
take care

I don't think EMTs would notice those...my daughter has about 5 different kinds on one wrist and the kids wear them for decoration...

Here are a few. Some of them are more like awareness bracelets than actual medical bracelets.

I think they are made more for awareness rather than life saving. You are safer with medic alert.

i agree with momcat, peg541 and that'smetrying.
my daughter only wears hers durning sports, where the coaches have all her allergies written down, and the people know her. it is jsut that the refs dont allow jewlery, but will allow her to wear that, but not the metal one.
