THE DISHER DIFFERENCE +

Problem Statement

Walkers are needed for safety but too often seniors forget to use them. i-Tell Alert® partnered with DISHER to design and develop a wearable device to remind seniors to use their walkers to reduce the risk of millions of falls a year.

RESEARCH & REQUIREMENTS DEFINITION

DISHER Product Researchers benchmarked numerous wireless technologies to determine optimal solutions for detecting distance from a walker while maintaining low-power usage. Product requirements were defined and refined with continual communication with the customer. Technical feasibility assessments were also conducted.

DESIGN

DISHER Conceptual Engineers designed a pair of devices that communicated with one another and determined distance accurately. DISHER hosted design reviews and performed technical analysis and simulations to meet or exceed the design requirements.

BUILD & VERIFY

DISHER Engineers translated the designs into a working prototype. Using the devices, the team performed functional-prototype testing to ensure the performance matched the simulations, and that all requirements were met.

REACTIONS & FINAL PRODUCT

The proof-of-concept devices were successfully released to iTell. The next phase will be beta testing in several long-term care facilities to gather design feedback. The devices were featured on Greenlight Maine, a Shark Tank-style show which allowed i-Tell Alert to advance to the finals in the Spring of 2020.
