A spokesman from Huntleigh Healthcare said, "This project is an exciting part of the future for the company and complements our existing range of products which are a boon to people who are being cared for at home." HomeFree Systems were successfully tested at Charing Cross Hospital's Geriatric ward. The trial was led by Dr. Frank Miskelly, Consultant Physician at the hospital and Chairman of the New Technology Section of the British Geriatrics Society. In conjunction with Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham Social Services he is soon to commence a large study in West London using the equipment with elderly people living in local residential homes and at home in the community. Dr. Miskelly further advises that numerous groups working with confused older people have expressed considerable interest in the research. The UK Alzheimer's society reports some 700,000 dementia patients in the UK. According to Health Policy Review, published by the University of London, the annual cost of Alzheimer's disease in the UK is some £5.5bn annually. Monitoring solutions could reduce the cost of care substantially and make it easier for more patients to be cared for in the community.
