B-D Safe-ClipBy Becton Dickinson Consumer Health Care (BD).
This is a needle clipper. Dylan Gypsy got me one of these needle clippers and I love it! I've given a few to friends since then. Ask for them at the Pharmacy,where they are kept behind the counter. Very handy not to have to carry my big sharps container in the RV when we travel anymore.

Diabetic BraceletsBy unique medical jewelry.
These bracelets are unique and stylish while still providing the medical symbol/medical information. These are simply an alternative to the conventional medicalert bracelets. They aren't for everyone but they ARE for people who will not wear a conventional medical bracelet because they want something that looks more stylish. Just another option.
The site was started for a type 1 juvenile diabetic who didn't want to wear her medical jewelry because of how it looked.
