SOS BRACELET, does anyone know of an INTERNATIONALLY recognised form of this?

I travel on my own and on my bucket list is to drive east to west coast of the USA next year. For safety's sake it would, I feel be advisable to note that I suffer from Lupus plus some of the attached syndromes and the drugs I take. Does anyone know of such a thing? If you fancy sharing the drive for three weeks, let me know!

Dear Paul,

Many, many thanks for the information, I will contact medic alert immediately.

Again thanks, this will give me a great assurance when travelling. Have a good Christmas and New Year.


No problem. I hope you have a fantastic trip. Merry Christmas :)


Don't know of much other than medic alert but sounds like a fantastic "Thelma & Louse" trip. Hope you have an amazing time! Xxx


Hi Kath, Try website:

USA at least has same language ;-)

Enjoy your trip. I cant go, cant take 3 wks off at one time with work.


I hope you had a wonderful drive two years ago.

For next travels you also could consider an ICECard app on your smartphone (at least if you take your smartphone with you ;-)
