The unique unit now taking shape is sturdy, lightweight, washable, durable, latex free and made of non-toxic, medical grade plastic, with a slightly textured, tactile finish.
This is the latest prototype - it's nearly ready to pilot!

The unit itself is just under 4cm square and less than 1 cm deep, and allows tokens to be easily slotted in and out.
The unit can be clipped onto a lanyard, keyring, or used on the badge-reel shown.
There will be various tokens available - each one double sided allowing tokens to be changed quickly and easily. Longer term we plan tokens for can speak/can't speak, need help/can do this myself, recharging/recharged - and more.
But we have to start somewhere: the first token set will be 'traffic lights' - the equivalent to the wristbands, with red, amber, and green - and a 'condition management in progress'.
These are the current drafts of the 'traffic lights' tokens.
Prices aren't finalised yet, but the unit is likely to cost around £10, and the tokens £2.50 each (although we are working to reduce these costs, and buying them as a 'pack' will be cheaper.)
We'd love your feedback or thoughts on this 'traffic lights' sets - and on the unit.
