Blue Willow Systems developed a senior resident safety hardware and software platform which offers fall detection, alert notifications and health monitoring. The system is comprised of two parts: the wearable Blue Band and the Hub. The two devices work in concert to monitor the user’s location, temperature and heart rate. The band can even detect a fall and arrange for help.
Mighty Studios conducted the user insights and ethnographic research to inform the industrial design process. Mighty Studios also produced the packaging design and guided the suite of products through production. Blue Willow was acquired by Philips in late 2018, resulting in a financial and market-share win for both companies.
