The Iris Apfel for Wisewear collection is a stylish range of jewelry embedded with sensors and Bluetooth capability that can send distress signals during emergency situations. The unique partnership proves that fashion and function do not have to be in opposition, especially when it comes to the healthcare realm, and in particular, in regards to seniors.

Founded in 2013, Wisewear was launched by Jerry Wilmink, who was driven to create the product range after his grandfather had fallen and succumbed to his injuries based on not being able to call for help. Wisewear produces stylish metal jewelry embedded with smart sensor technology and Bluetooth capabilities that ensure individuals can reach their loved ones in times of need.
