Daviscomms wins SBR Designed in Singapore Award for Healthcare

Daviscomms won the Designed In Singapore Award in Healthcare for its efforts to improve personal protection of the elderly through its MD5 Mobile Personal Emergency Response Device.

Established in 2000, Daviscomms (S) Pte Ltd provides contract design and manufacturing services for a wide range of high-quality consumer and industrial wireless telecommunication products such as pagers and paging systems, telemetry solutions, emergency tracking devices, medical devices, mobile handheld devices, and printed circuit board assemblies.

The company’s Design Centre is located in Singapore and boasts of ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System) and ISO 13485:2016 (global standard for medical device quality management systems) certifications. With a team of dedicated and experienced professionals in electrical/electronics hardware and software development, mechanical and Industrial product designs, Daviscomms (S) Pte Ltd is well poised to serve its global customer’s needs through delivering ideas and concepts into state-of-the-art products and devices.

One of the customers’ needs that Daviscomms (S) Pte Ltd addressed with its new device design is the need for elderly-friendly personal protection devices. The current pandemic makes it even more difficult for many to visit their elderly relatives, so a personal protection device sounds like a good option to consider.

With personal protection devices, elderly relatives are able to remain independent, safe, and comfortable in their own homes, while family members are assured that help can be summoned promptly if necessary. These devices are designed to be easy to use, with simple and clear instructions and a customer support team on hand to help.

Daviscomms (S) Pte Ltd’s MD5 is a Mobile Personal Emergency Response Device that gives the elderly peace of mind when they are in or away from their home. Its main advantage is being one of the smallest and the lightest elderly personal protection devices. Weighing at only 52 grams, the design features sleek housing with modern and stylish colours. 

MD5 is also wearable and waterproof, evidence that it is thoughtfully designed with the user in mind. The device comes with a detachable lanyard which the elderly can wear comfortably on their neck. Its water-resistant casing will allow the elderly to wear the device anywhere they wanted, even in the shower. 

Another game-changer design feature of MD5 is its high technology but easy-to-use applications. When the elderly press the big emergency buttons, it will activate the loud and clear voice guidance. With the real-time GPS, it will be able to detect their location quickly and call emergency operators. Thus, the emergency operators can provide prompt and immediate assistance for the elderly. The device also comes with an automatic fall detection that will automatically send an alarm if the elderly fall and are unable to push the button. This gives the elderly peace of mind knowing that they can receive emergency help even if they are unable to press the emergency buttons. 

Key Achievements:

  1. smallest and lightest MPER ( Mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems) device in the market today that is both wearable and waterproof
  2. automatically identifies the user and his/her location and sends the data to the emergency response centre
  3. 433mhz transceiver that links and works with other alarm monitoring systems 
  4. An automatic fall detection system that alerts the emergency response centre even when the user is physically unable to do it himself or herself.

Daviscomms (S) Pte Ltd’s designers are able to identify immediate and relevant customer needs especially amidst the pandemic. Customer testimonials about the MD5 showed how the device’s design prioritized reliability and user-friendly. With the pandemic heightening the customer demand for a sense of safety and security, Daviscomms’ MD5 gives peace of mind to its customers.
