The project is currently negotiating with potential commercial partners form the UK. In the current stage they plan to arrange a bigger pilot (around 100 users) in which SOFTCARE will be integrated with an existing commercial system (they will use their gateway and, probably, web interface).
Only after the results of this second pilot they will be able to bring SOFTCARE results to the market but, according the consortium position, it will be done by integrating the SOFTCARE bracelet and algorithms (for fall detection and activity recognition) in an existing commercial product. In parallel they are currently studying alternatives uses for the SOFTCARE results.
