Lori Orlov at Aging in Place Technology Watch has an interesting post on the lack of "innovation" in PERS devices or Personal Emergency Response Systems (known by many as the terrible "I've fallen and can't get up" commercials).  This device is going to totally evolve, especially as technology companies and senior services pros work closer together.  We recently met with a major global company that wants to serve the senior market, but they said they don't know anything about seniors and senior services.  Well we don't know anythnig about manufacturing the products they develop.  Collaboration: the key to living better.
