Post Falls, ID (PressExposure) February 18, 2011 -- According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, food allergies continue to rise and at the same time children are far more fashion conscious than ever before. That is why the manufacturers of medical ID items are continuing to come up with new ideas and products for kids.
The choices now range from the traditional bracelet and necklaces, to watches, and much more. Clip on ID tags are now popular and can be quickly attached to shoes, backpacks and coat zippers. The increase in sports for the young has created the need for Velcro wrist bands that can take quite a bit of abuse and still be there at the end of the game.
Also, new to the scene are EMRs (Electronic Medical Records) which are simple Medical USB devices that can provide up to several gigs of information when you need it most. These can even hold x-rays, charts, and massive amounts of patient info. In an emergency situation critical information about you, your child, and even your family can be accessed by medical professionals in minutes.
It's not the same world their parents and grand parents grew up in ... and necessity is the mother of invention.
