Life Stories

We are proud of the work we do and we are proud of our courageous customers. Their many stories about the comfort and critical help provided by our medical IDs encourage us to continue working to the highest standards. Here are some testimonies from our customers.

Congratulations to our 2013 Life Story Contest Winners!

Scott A., Chipping Norton, NSW - FIRST PLACE

Iíve worked in the outdoor adventure industry my whole life. Iíve worked as a lifeguard from pools to lakes, as a climbing guide, back country wilderness guide and as a survival instructor. With the years Iíve worked in the outdoor adventure industry Iíve come across a number of medical alert bracelets and similar apparel with customers and people Iíve had to rescue over the years. To say that the medical alert system has caused me to save lives would be accurate.

Suzanne M., Sydney, NSW - SECOND PLACE

My name is Suzanne and my Medi ID is the tip of the iceberg and the icing on the cake. The iceberg and the cake have been intertwined since I was 10 years old - I am now 30. But I'll be honest; there are worse things in life than ice-cream cake! I wear my Medi Alert bracelet for its practical use and its constant reassurance for my mind.

Anne B., Mt. Martha, Victoria - THIRD PLACE

Hello my name is Anne Breen and I have Von WillebrandísÖ let me guess, youíve never heard of it? Thanks to Universal Medical ID, if I am ever in accident the paramedics will see on my necklace exactly what I have; my blood type and my ICE (in case of emergency phone number).

Andy Corbitt, Forfar Scotland

I purchased a stainless steel dog-tag style ID necklace a few years ago when I was first diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I regard it as essential to identify my condition in case of emergency, and the ID dog-tag is perfect. The fact that it also doubles as a stylish piece of jewellry is a added bonus. This will last me years, but if it ever does have to be replaced, you can count on me ordering from Universal Medical ID UK...again.

Charlotte Rand, Essex UK

I got a band when I realised I was having a few seizures a month and not always with somebody I know when out in public. So looked it up online and came across this website, it was very easy to use when inputting my details for the engraving and was delivered quickly. I have had my band for a few years now and don't leave the house without it. It's great, with the silicone I can change colours to match my daily outfit and they're all bright so easily noticeable. I highly recommend this to anybody who suffers from illnesses or allergies. I have even written about it in an article for a newsletter for the South East Essex Epilepsy Society and contained a link to your website.

Kelli D.

I have had 6 brain surgeries; the first one in 1973. Not until a mistake by the last Doctor did I have any problems. I am now still healing from the last procedure on April 1, 2009. At this time I have a spot on my brain (from the bleed in 2009) that presents a potential for seizures. I had my first, and hopefully last, seizure in September of 2011. I am thankful that I was not home alone, but because of the possibility of another seizure, I purchased a medical ID with the necessary medical information listed on it. I do feel safe now and know that if I am ever alone and need assistance in a medical emergency, my ID will possibly save my life.

Nancy P.

I have severe life threatening allergies along with other medical conditions - one being my heart. I have had 4 heart catherizations in the past year. Even though I carry a medical alert on paper with medications and medical history, I feel so secure knowing that I have this medical bracelet on. It gives me confidence that in an emergency, all the information is at hand. Thank you for the opportunity to share.

Joshua L. - Part II

Joshua is now a happy 8 year old boy. He loves to play with his older brothers and listen to music. Cardiology visits are still very important to him because he only has half of his heart.

Joshua L.- Part I

Joshua Lemacks looks a lot like your average 7 1/2 year old boy, but his life has been far from average. Joshua was born in 2003 with a severe congenital heart defect (that he refers to as "half-a heart" ) where his left ventricle did not form properly.
