Redesigning PERS artistically in Glasgow

Students at the Glasgow (Scotland) School of Arts are participating in a redesign of the traditional medical alarm (PERS)–the ubiquitous (among the old-old) neck or wrist-worn pendant. Sponsored by Chubb Community Care (part of Chubb Fire & Security in the UK, not the insurance company), the challenge is to design a pendant/watch from the user/carer/professional point of view on design and functionality. There are currently five groups competing for a £250 first prize plus second and third prizes. We understand from Chubb that the prizes will be awarded shortly and this Editor will bring you the results. How far afield will the teams will go? We hope as far as they can!  Chubb release
