The MediPal Company created this really neat little product and is an all in one medical notification seatbelt ID pouch.
As most know I am a mom of a severely handicapped child and I , as his mom, am his caregiver and caretaker. Years ago we came to the realization this handsome young man was going to be my journey to the unknown. I had never had to worry about anything medical related growing up because I was healthy and I didn't have any lasting issues.
In 1996 I had a little boy, looked like any other little boy, by site he was the spitting image of health and happiness. As he aged, little differences began to become noticeable and really stood out. He was delayed in sitting, walking, eating, growing and most noticeable TALKING. At 16, he is a diagnosed "Mute" with cerebral palsy with multiple other disabilities.
When he became school age I did purchase him a medic alert bracelet, yes bracelet, it is easier for him to carry and it eliminates the chance of someone grabbing a necklace and hurting him, so bracelet it was. As those who have the similar circumstances know, bracelet is good but has to be replaced every couple of years. While in search of my next bracelet to order I came across, in my web search, something that really caught my eye. It was just a name, but the name was what interested me... The MediPal , intrigued me so I had to check it out for myself.
either upper belt or lower belt. It stays wrapped using very strong Velcro and folds easily so it is easy to install and move around as needed. These are super versatile as they can also be used on
bags or virtually anyplace that your child needs to carry it. I did place one in my truck but as well on his backpack. It carries all pertinent info, including Drs and medication.
The reason I like these is because ,like I stated, he does not talk and never will and I am his mommy taxi and chauffer and his speech impairment is a huge thing to me. What would happen if we were in an accident and I could not be his voice at that time, I don't want someone to misdiagnose his injuries due to the fact he doesn't answer questions. The pouch contains ALL that info and it is strongly laid out that he is MUTE w sensory issues so when he is treated he is treated as needed. The pouch is visible and in a noticeable place if needed to be retrieved. The one on his backpack is basically for community outings and times he is without me but with his group setting. Id rather be safe than sorry and I at least know all info is within fingers reach.
