Many individuals with disabilities are unable to communicate with emergency personnel in times of need. Natalie Bell is a mother of five who went viral for creating an affordable solution for this potential problem. Her company, Personalised by Nat, offers Bellt Alert Covers, which are customizable seatbelt straps that simply attach to seatbelts and backpack straps.
Bell wrote about how her daughter, who has a cochlear implant, was the inspiration behind this product:
“I always wonder what would happen if I was in a car accident with my daughter in the car and I was unable to let the doctors know that my daughter could not have an MRI due to having a cochlear implant. Now I don’t need to worry about this with these covers.”
The covers are portable and attach securely via velcro. Here are some pre-made options available:
- “I HAVE TYPE 2 DIABETES – INSULIN DEPENDENT”
- “I HAVE AUTISM – I MAY RESIST HELP”
- “I HAVE EPILEPSY – I MAY HAVE A SEIZURE”
- “I HAVE CEREBRAL PALSY – I NEED HELP WALKING”
- “I AM BLIND – PLEASE ASSIST ME”
In addition to the above options, you can also personalize a cover for your child’s specific need(s).
