Editor's Notes

September 23, 2019:

When evaluating the best medical ID bracelets fit was one of our top considerations. The Universal Medical Data Silicone remains our top choice because you simply need to cut it to fit comfortably on just about any wrist, and if it's comfortable, you'll be more likely to wear it. It also provides one of the largest engraving plates for a full 6 lines of information.

We included a few options with just a simple message of the most important information for people who want to keep their personal information more private. The Morin Store Wristbands is so easy for a child to wear and alerts personnel to their Type 1 diabetes. And the Smarter Lifestyle Women's provides the names of many common conditions or drugs that could influence medical treatment decisions.

We added the Road ID Sidekick and Road ID Tag because of the popularity of fitness trackers and smart watches. Users concerned about style may not want something on both wrists, so they can convert what they already wear everyday into their ID bracelet.
