GOLD + PREMIER’S AWARD + PRESIDENT’S AWARD
A collaboration between The University of South Australia and Hills Limited, focusing on the development of a new nurse call assistive device, suitable for the aged care market.
The Arthritis Nurse Call Pendant re-thinks the way a call button works in the best possible way. Instead of making the buttons larger or different shape, the unit instead uses an air switch allowing the unit to be activated by squeezing a shaped balloon with your hand, foot, elbow, arm etc. As an assurance the unit glows when activated and can also be tailored in size and shape to suit specific users, without altering the essential working parts of the unit.
The UniSA Industrial Design Incubator has offered up a solution which will revolutionise the way that hospital and emergency call buttons work.
