Circle members participate in a lively discussion of 'what works and what doesn't' about their emergency call pendants (PERS systems). Numerous design flaws were identified, including: too large, not comfortable to wear, no voice communication channel, some 'dead zones' - even on campus. Seemingly, more would wear them with an enhanced sense of safety if some of their design ideas were adopted.
Notes: Why we don't like the PERS we have
Notes: What we would like to see in a "better PERS"
