About Peter Vogel
Peter’s long and distinguished career in electronics, music and aged care technology gives him a unique perspective on the opportunities advanced technologies present to aged care.

Having first studied biorhythms “just for fun” at aged 17, Peter went on to change the world of music with his invention of the first sound sampling synthesiser (the Fairlight), synonymous with music of the 80’s from artist like Stevie Wonder, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel and Michael Jackson.

Peter designed the first Vitalcall personal medical alarm product in 1982. Updates of this concept survive to this day.
More recently, Peter has been researching the role of music in dementia and aged care with the objective of provides improvements in resident behaviour, family engagement, facility workflows and most importantly quality of life. This knowledge is being applied to the design of a complete assistive technology suite which will be trialled in the dementia-friendly home being designed by the University of Wollongong’s for the Solar Decathlon.
