Scram Bracelet

By law I have to wear a Scram bracelet. I have no problem doing my time for what I was convicted for. The only issue is the sound it makes when it takes a reading. Every so offten (about every 30 mins or so) it will make a BUZZ sound that is pretty loud to me. I mean, My husband heard it while driving us to work. I was wondering if anyone knew how to muffle the sound? Thx!

Hi Shell

Thanks for coming to Science Buzz, but this isn't the appropriate place for your question. Usually Science Buzz users post blog entries about science in the news. We have posted about the Scram bracelet on Science Buzz before, however, and people have commented there about their experience with the device. That post is located here: Sobriety Sensor: Is Scram the perfect plan for recover, or just a scam?

m, 6 mos. no major problems until recently. I supposedly consumed .01 .02 % in my sleep. Never had DWI DUI. In drug court. They wanted to kick me out. Thank goodness for attys. I did not drink. I was in a sports bar watching football for 2 hours with AA members. The supposed consumption was in the middle of the night while sleeping. Judge didn't believe me. My lawyer said he finds it hard to consume that Amt of alcohol. I make my own lotions I had device changed after supposed incident had grime in it. Judge 100% believes in it. Sanctioned to 24 hrs. Fine. Now just scared. Never had issue until now. Was supposed to have it removed. Now I'm reading possible issues with a computerized device my freedom rides on that can break down like a computer.

The side effects of the scram bracelet for me has not been good. I have successully stopped drinking, I had been drinking heavily because I lost my amazing 20 yr. old son 8 mths ago, and I got a dui. anyways, I am now looking for other drugs to take that I would never do when I could drink....precription drugs that I take way over the recommened doses, and recently high level street drugs. Its not solving the problem.

after being forced by the courts to wear the SCRAM bracelet for almost 3 years when the bracelet came off I have continuous ankle swelling and tendon damage from wearing this bracelet.the bracelet gives off and electric pulse every 30 minutes and for 2 years and 8 months I was under all those electric pulses on my left ankle.I never twisted my ankle injured my ankle anyway and when the bracelet came off I noticed within 72 hours I has having problems. the left ankle on the outside by the ankle bone that tendon that runs down to the top of your foot up the side of your leg is what I'm referring to. I'm curious if anybody else has similar issues like that.

I was orders to wear scram for 30 days but after just 2 weeks the electrical pulses interacted with the titanium hardware on my spine and caused dizziness, chest pains, and finally my ears started bleeding and I ended up in the emergency room!
