There are many different types of Medi-Alert items on the market these days, & they vary dramatically between the types: There are bangles, pendants, key fobs, wrist bands - plus the different versions such as: locket types, tag types, scroll types, etc... My theory was that, if someone found me unconscious in the street, I wanted them to get the allergy information imediately (without having to fumble with lockets or screw-top canisters. And that is EXACTLY what this wrist band does. I think that the majority of people wear some type of wrist band, therefore, it may not be the first place that a first aider would look. But, the writing on the band is very prominant, being of a 'blood' red colour, with bright white ALERT & Paramedic symbol. The type of allergy is in a bright yellow colour, which contrasts against the background & makes it instantly noticable. The silicon of the band itself is not quite as thick as my other (charity) band, but it is still very strong & stretches as much as any other band (making it extremely robust). If this is the type of Medi-Alert you are looking for, be assured that this is bright, noticable & strong. Obviously, there are many other bands for many different medical conditions / allergies, but the ones made by "EMIALERT" are very good quality.
