Your medical information. On you. Keeping you safe.

We know that being diagnosed with any of the 13 Ehlers-Danlos syndromes can be overwhelming. Depending on the type of EDS, it may affect you in a number of ways - from hypermobility and skin that can break easily, to digestive problems and fragile blood vessels.

Whilst it is important to be careful about activities that may put you at risk of injury, it's equally important to live an otherwise normal life1. As a charity, MedicAlert provides the peace of mind to be active and join in, keeping you safe in an emergency.

MedicAlert ID allows access to your medical information, including all conditions, history and any medications you may take.
