Red White Silicone Medical Alert Wristband

These custom engraved temporary medical alert wristbands are flexible and washable ... perfect for sports, running or school. 100% silicone (latex free). Approx 12mm or 0.5" wide. 

Long-Lasting Temporary Wristbands - Silicone is a soft material, so over time the top layer will wear away, which takes away the colour difference that makes the engraving stand out. How long will it last? That completely depends on the person. We would say between 2 weeks to 1 year, depending on how often it's worn. So these wristbands are perfect for occasional use, days out, gym sessions, activity camp ... any time you need some extra peace of mind. For all day / everyday wear, we recommend a metal bracelet.

Engraving - All engraving is on the outside of the band. It will start with the Caduceus symbol of emergency medicine (unless you ask for it to be left off). Longer text will be engraved in a smaller font across two lines. Text limits and tips

Sizing tips - The most important factor in choosing the right size is the measurement around the widest part of your hand (not your wrist) - as it needs to slip on and off over your hand. Although there is a little bit of stretch in the band, if you pull or tug on it too hard, or stretch it too far over your hand, it could break. If you are in any doubt, go up a size!

  • 202mm - Adult (approx age 14+), with a hand up to 215mm around, although it is not appropriate if you have large hands
  • 180mm - Pre-teens (approx age 8 to 13) and adults with very slim hands up to 190mm around.
  • 152mm - Young children (up to age 6 or 7) with a hand up to 160mm around.

Taking care - Wash gently with water and dry with a soft cloth. Please keep in mind that silicone is a soft material, so it won't last as long as a metal bracelet. Regular contact with a watch, other jewellery, clothes, or bedsheets will cause the outer colour to fade. We recommend not wearing your wristband in bed or in the shower to give it a longer life.
