The MedicAlert Foundation is a non-profit making, registered charity providing a lifesaving identification system for individuals with hidden medical conditions and allergies. This takes the form of body-worn bracelets, necklets, wristbands or watches (known as MedicAlert Emblems) bearing the MedicAlert symbol on the disc and supported by a 24-hour emergency telephone service. Each member receives an Emblem that is engraved with the wearer's main medical condition(s) or vital details, a personal ID number and a 24-hour emergency telephone number that can access their details from anywhere in the world in over 100 languages.
In an emergency, medical personnel have immediate access to vital information on the back of the MedicAlert disc. By phoning the emergency number, they can also gain further medical and personal information such as your name and address, doctor's details, current drug therapy and next of kin. A translation service is available in over 100 languages.
There is a charge for membership to the service. However, as a registered charity, MedicAlert can also provide free or subsidised membership to individuals on a limited income.
