The judges stated:

“ The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “HalleyAssist® is a great design that eliminates the shortcomings of other attempts to address this same issue. Solutions like this will increasingly become the holy grail of independent living, and this one has been carefully executed, well researched and personally instigated. This device could make a measurable difference to the ability of people to ‘age in place’. ”
