Whether you’re a professional sports person or just interested in pursuing sports as a hobby, your health status shouldn’t limit or prohibit you from taking part in your favourite sporting activities.
Saying that, it also doesn’t mean you should go in unprepared and unequipped. Our range of Sports Medical IDs are designed with the athlete in mind. They are comfortable and practical to wear while training and competing. Plus, with a variety of styles available, you’ll find something to suit you and the sport you love.
Why wear a Sports Medical ID?
Playing sports is beneficial to your physical and mental well-being, and can be a lot of fun. However, if you or a loved one has a medical condition like diabetes, or suffers from autism, allergies or epilepsy, it is important to take that extra step to keep safe while exercising. What happens if you have a fall while out running and you can’t communicate to anyone that you have a particular medical condition? What happens if you get separated from a severely autistic loved one during a race?
Nobody likes to assume the worst, especially when they’re doing sports, however, it’s important to realise that accidents do happen and so it’s a good idea to be prepared. The ICE (In Case of Emergency) Sports Medical ID may seem like a simple wristband but it could be the difference between life and death.
What does the Sports Medical ID do?
Our range of Sports Medical ID tags speaks for you when you’re unable to, giving emergency first responders all the vital information they need to give you the best possible care in the fastest possible time. Each Sports ID wristband 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 diabetes, autism or an allergy to certain antibiotics)
If a wristband isn’t for you, the Sports Medical ID tag has a variety of ICE ID straps perfect for attaching to your running shoes. We also have water resistant rubber straps for those active in water sports, and leather wrist straps for stylish everyday use. Regardless of the strap you choose, your information will be engraved on the stainless steel tag.
Alternatively, you can purchase a digital version of our Sports Medical ID: a plastic, water resistant ID tag with a QR code that can be attached to your bag or clothes. Swimming, cycling, running, you name it and the ICE Sports Medical ID is perfect for it. Get your hands on an ICE Sports Medical ID today.
