How to Choose the Best Medical Alert ID in Australia

A medical ID is one of the most important pieces of jewellery you can own. It is designed to speak for you when you can’t. Since it’s a piece of jewellery you’ll wear every day, there are some features you need to consider when purchasing one.

 

Medical ID Bracelet or Necklace

EMS personnel are trained to look around the neck and wrists during an emergency, therefore a bracelet or necklace offer the highest level of identification and protection compared to accessories on one’s phone or in one’s wallet.

 

 

Level of Durability

Medical IDs are as durable as the material used to make them. See chart for summary of durability by metal.

 

Most Durable
Stainless Steel & Titanium
Suitable for all activities. Scratch Resistant. Brush finish.
Moderately Durable
Silver & Gold-Filled Suitable for daily wear. High-polish finish for elevated look. Limit exposure to harsh chemicals, sweat, and chlorine to prevent tarnish.
14 KT Gold Suitable for daily wear. High-polish finish for elevated look. Less susceptible to tarnish from exposure to harsh chemicals, sweat, and chlorine.

 

Engraving Space

Different ID styles offer different amounts of engraving space depending on the size of the ID.  Some styles offer front and back engraving, while others may only accommodate one.  For IDs with limited engraving, we suggest purchasing an expandable wallet card to accompany your ID. We recommend that you also seek the advice of your doctor on which information is best to include.
