Due to shortened technology lifecycles and changing customer needs, companies are forced to get their products to the market quicker. To overcome these challenges, agile product development methods have been developed. After being widely prevailed in software development, agile methods find their way into hardware development. The TAF Agile Framework provides a procedural model specifically for developing mechatronic products. In this paper TAF is used for the development of an innovative emergency wearable for seniors and is evaluated using an adaption of the 4-Dimensional Analytical Tool.
