Never thought I would need it

by ROAD iD Staff May 18, 2021

When I first saw your product, I thought, "Cool" - but didn't think I would really need one. Then I was diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma. I bought a Wrist ID Sport in the Original Version, and figured I'd just wear it when I ran, just in case.

Over the Summer, I had an asthma attack that sent me to the Emergency Room and it wasdetermined that I actually had full-blown asthma. After that, I wore the band every day. It's comfortable (not an easy feat when the wearer has Autism Spectrum Disorder), and it's garnered many compliments for style and visibility.

I didn't think I would need the Interactive Version, but on Friday, I had another attack.... That resulted in my first ambulance ride. It became apparent that if I hadn't been able to give my information, the band couldn't possibly hold all of the new medications that were added. I just bought a new ID, with the interactive feature added, so that there will always be access to up-to-date information (because a phone is only helpful if it has battery power).

Hopefully, this will be the last time I end up in the ER, but I will be able to run, work, and live life with the peace of mind that someone will be there to speak for me when I cannot.
