Assure Personal Alert System

New Product Development
Wearable healthcare monitoring technology

The Acticheck Assure is a revolutionary personal alert system. Inspired by a conversation with his mother, founder Karl Gibbs set out to develop solutions to people living and caring for those alone.
Designed to be comfortable for long term use and easy to use, the Assure can be worn by anyone, anywhere. Continuously checking the health of its wearer, the band tracks movement and body temperature. If and when an alarm is raised, the wearers support network is instantly contacted. Unlike comparative solutions, Assure doesn’t rely on its wearer to trigger an alarm. Being shock and water-resistant. The Assure offers constant reassurance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With a typical battery life of two years it never needs recharging.

Assure offers independence to those who live, work or play solo, or who are not as self-sufficient as they once used to be. It is ideal for those with specific medical needs as well as lone workers and solo sportspeople desiring an extra level of personal security.

“We found that fundamental concerns about the aesthetics and functionality of personal alarms were resulting in limited market penetration. At the same time we were aware that the market for smart, wearable devices has been exploding. Taking this into account we come up with a beautifully designed product with the power to disrupt the assistive technology market and provide peace of mind on the wrist.”


Two different type of shore rubbers were used for this prototype. These were affixed together and an antennae placed inside. PDR manufactured 25 sets of working, functional and aesthetically correct prototypes which were used for field trials.
