The idea behind medical identification was actually started by the military back when soldiers were issued so called dog tags designed to inform about medical data, like blood type and medical history that could be accessed easily without requiring any form of technology. Medical id charms are now available on everything from gold and silver bracelets to flash drives and membership cards that can be carried in a wallet.

The ID tag normally is a small emblem or tag worn on a bracelet as medical alert pendants, neck chain, or on the clothing bearing a message that the wearer has an important medical condition that might require immediate attention. and because at-risk men; with medic alert bracelets for women, children, and teens all stand to benefit from instant access to their current medical information, designers have addressed the tastes of each group to make wearing a medical bracelet a pleasant bit of insurance that will provide safety and security when they need it most.

The information access provided by the wearing of a diabetes bracelet actually started in the armed forces back when soldiers began wearing dog tags. Initially, medical ID bracelets had a very similar look and function, but the current alert system has evolved considerably since then. Both the design and the volume of information available have improved to include a wide variety of jewelry choices and a comprehensive source of up-to-date patient information. Medic alert symbols are now available on everything from gold and silver bracelets to flash drives and membership cards that can be carried in a wallet.

Perhaps the biggest payoff is knowing that when the wearer is most vulnerable, an ID bracelet will make his comprehensive medical information readily accessible. People who don’t want to wear jewelry can carry a specially marked USB flash drive loaded with emergency data that medics can read from any computer in an emergency. Whatever identification system is chosen, doctors say, it should provide a way for responders to access as much information as possible quickly.
