People.co.uk – Health ID Bands

By Samantha Cope on May 7, 2010 10:37 AM in Health

Mediband, the creators of the medical ID bracelets, has just launched in the UK and has produced a range of wristbands designed specifically for people with allergies ranging from food intolerances like nuts and dairy, to medical conditions such as diabetes and epilepsy.
The launch comes on the back of new NHS figures which show a significant rise in the number of emergency adrenaline injectors given to patients to fight against severe allergies. 211.040 injectors were issued in 2008, compared with just 25,320 in 1995 – a rise of more than 700%.
Prices for the bands range from £2.08 to £1.03, depending on the size of the order.
Further information on the Mediband wristbands is available from www.mediband.co.uk.
