Making it trendy to keep yourself well

Two interesing brief stories lately about designers making allowances for the way that ugly medical aides lead to resistant users (and spiffy devices might be more happily welcomed):
  1. Hearware: attempting to do for hearing aides what the last few decades have done for eyeglasses -- style!! (and working with other sound-control devices too)
    (via boing boing)

  2. Beadin' Bangle: making medical-alert bracelets and necklaces you'd actually want to be seen in public in.
    (via knotted knickers)
