ICE ID manufactures and distributes a range of medical identification IDs for children of all ages. Available as running id bands, shoelace straps and water sport bands, and in a range of sizes, styles and colours, the Kid’s Medical ID is suitable for all occasions and is especially recommended for kids who suffer from allergies or have medical conditions such as asthma or diabetes.
Why wear a Kid’s Medical ID?
Your child has type 1 diabetes and is away for the weekend on a summer camp trip. While the child is playing outside, they begin to feel tired and collapse - hurting themselves in the progress. Unless you’ve told all the adults in charge about your child’s condition, the ones around at the time of the incident may not know what to do.
Your child has gone to the park with some friends and they’re sharing snacks without realising that there are nuts in it, a serious allergy for your child. Any available adult in the park may not know what the problem is and how to contact you as it’s likely your child will be incapable of communication as a result of their allergic reaction.
This is where the Kids Medical ID wristband or bracelet comes in handy. By having your son or daughter wear this on their wrist, bag, jacket or even shoe, they could receive the right medical treatment in the fastest possible time. It also means you can be contacted at a moment’s notice. Yes, it sounds extreme but the Kids ID bracelet really can be the difference between life and death.
What does the Kid’s Medical ID do?
ICE ID’s range of wristbands and bracelets for children speak on your child’s and your behalf when either of you are unable to, giving medical staff the vital information they need to give you the best possible care as quickly as possible. Each Kid’s ID wristband tag and bracelet tag can include up to six lines of information, including:
- Full name
- Town/ postcode
- NHS Number
- Two emergency numbers
- Medical insurance number
- Blood type
- Any known allergies or conditions (e.g. having type 1 diabetes, autism, epilepsy or an allergy to certain antibiotics)
If you don’t want a pre-engraved Kids ID band for your child, there are other options available to you. The ICE ID QR code tag is a handy digital variant to have. On the waterproof plastic tag (which can be attached to bags and clothes) is a QR code that can be scanned with a QR or barcode reading app to find out their personal health information. Alternatively, you could opt for the new line of ICE Infobands we have for children. Waterproof, reusable and adjustable straps that come in a variety of colours and designs.
As much as you want to, you won’t be there to protect and care for your child 24/7. The ICE ID tags for children will speak on your behalf, ensuring any attending paramedics or the adults in charge can obtain the essential and life-saving information on your loved one.
Don’t let your child fend for themselves out there.
Protect your child with ICE ID.
