Emergency First Responders have questions.
The MediPal Seatbelt ID has answers.
We are a family just like yours, concerned about the care and safety of our loved ones. As the founder of the MediPal company and a mother with a daughter who is nonverbal and has epilepsy, I bring a personal commitment to helping support the rights of those in the disability community and help to ensure their voices are heard. I am all too familiar with the kind of ongoing advocacy work that’s needed for individuals with unique needs to receive appropriate care.
First Responders need to know if their patient has a chronic health condition, or is on multiple medications, because it can influence the kind of emergency medical treatment they provide, and it can influence where their patient will be transported, should he/she need further treatment. In turn, first responders can also relay patient information to a receiving medical care team.

The MediPal Company’s Mission
To empower individuals in all disability communities towards self-sufficiency and independence, help identify pain-points in our customer’s journeys, build solutions and offer resources.
The MediPal Company was founded by Kathryn Turner in 2003, incorporated in 2010 and began by offering the innovative, patented MediPal® Seatbelt ID to consumers. The MediPal Company expanded its role by providing custom imprinting, product discounts and fundraising opportunities to state and national organizations, to include disabled and senior citizen special interest groups.
We donate a percentage of every MediPal Seatbelt ID sold to impactful organizations who serve individuals in the disability and senior communities. (visit We Give)
