The COBALT group exercise at the Age UK Engage event on 26th April involved the delegates, working in pairs to select, investigate and review technology provided on their table. Both mainstream and assistive technology was on offer. Representatives from industry were not offered devices from their own organisation. 14 anonymous reviews were completed and this note gives a summary.

The products selected were EasyPhone (2), Door Entry System, Nikon Coolpix (2), Body Fat Monitor, Electro Circulation Massager, Heart/ Exercise monitor polar electro, Blood Pressure Monitor (3), Jumbo Alarm, Up Easy Power Seat, Bed and Chair occupancy alarm.
