EIGHT-year-old Daisy Hancox’s designs are helping to save lives.
The Berry Brow youngster has created a MedicAlert identification band to help doctors treating children with hidden medical issues to know what treatment they will react to.
Daisy, a pupil at Newsome Junior School, has cochlear implants in both ears and wears one of the MedicAlert bands herself.
Her mum Julie Hancox said: “Daisy has to wear a bracelet herself because if she was ever in an accident it would alert the doctor that she can’t have certain treatments.
“One of the things she can’t have is an X-ray because it could affect the implant. “The information on the band will also tell doctors the way she responds to penicillin and other vital information.
“She just entered this competition like children do. She can’t believe she won it.”
Daisy was helped by big sister Abigail, 13, and created the sporty band for young boys, which shows cars and aeroplanes.
The bands are worn by people who have hidden medical conditions and allergies, such as diabetes and heart problems.
They have been proved to save lives when people are admitted to hospital after having an accident.
Daisy won the MedicAlert Foundation competition and her limited edition band will be seen on the wrists of hundreds of youngsters throughout the country.
