Epilepsy Foundation

Medical bracelets, necklaces, and so on.. I know some people wear them and others choose not to. I wear the standard Epilepsy bracelet. Somebody got it for me right before I started college, which was shortly after my diagnosis. Anyways, the clasp (or whatever you choose to call it) is always getting caught on things. Last night I woke up because it had gotten caught on my Indian blanket. It gets caught on everything! Does anyone else have this problem and/or do you know of any good sites that sale decent medical bracelets?

"Mediband" is one I like.  It's a rubber wrist band.  They have it for Epilepsy as well as a large range of other medical conditions.

You will probably just have to go to a jeweler to get some of the links removed. 

I searched for about a month for a girl's medic ID bracelet until I found this company on-line: www.creativemedicalid.com

I get mine through Medicalert.  The bracelet that I got through them is completely smooth on both sides of the clasp so it doesn't catch on anything.  They have bracelets, necklaces, watches, etc.  It is wide selection and they do last a long time, so I suggest getting one through them.  They are at www.medicalert.org

When I lived in CA I ran a support group through the EFA. It was great. Prior to oneof my meetings I decided to not only get "Medic-Alert" info sent to me, but also go speak to my local ambulance compancy on the topic.

The paramedicas loved that I came in on this subject as they DO look for this informationon EVERYONE. They informed they liked the bracelets the best and they prefered them to be worn on the left arm.

They stated the neckaces can bedifficult to see at times on patients on gurneys.

Medic-alert has some nice bracelets, pretty ones, but I personally want mine to look a bit on the medical side to get the attention of medical personell.

Hi Melissa,

              It sounds like you were just diagnosed with E if so Bummer on one hand, and welcome aboard on

the other we all here for one another.I got my bracelet on ebay I was amazed with the amount of E bracelets and necklace and in all $ ranges the one I got came with a medical card to fill out for my wallet.

and I dont know if you would like this or not but mine is a sport type with velcro ends so it fits any size.

God Bless

Thank you all for the suggestions.

I'm not that new to Epilepsy. I was diagnosed in late 2009. I have one that was bought at Walgreen's and it's always getting caught on everything from my jeans to my hair. I just want something that doesn't get caught as easy and that is, of course, cute.
