Medical alert bracelets are usually thought of as a device to assist the elderly, but they can also be a great way to monitor and protect young children, before or instead of a cell phone. For a child with a medical condition, an alert bracelet can not only notify strangers about health concerns and allergies in an emergency situation, but also provide GPS tracking for parents and caregivers. This can be especially useful if they walk to and from school on their own or take the bus alone. Following, you'll find our selection of the best medical alerts for children.

Bay Alarm Medical's medical alerts offer 24/7 push-button help for use during an emergency, which children can use easily. Operators then initiate two-way communication, track the location of the device, and if necessary, contact family and local 911 services. Bay Alarm Medical's monitoring partner has a large network of emergency response centers which provide immediate coverage if one were to go offline. All of Bay Alarm Medical's plans have the option of adding a Mobile GPS help device, which we highly recommend for children, as they can remain as mobile as they wish, without sacrificing coverage.
