we are hiring


In a groundbreaking study, UK general practitioners (GPs) have expressed a strong desire to prescribe assistive technologies for dementia patients. The goal? To enhance independence and extend lives. This research, conducted by the Longitude Prize on Dementia, sheds light on the urgent need for innovative solutions in dementia care.

The Study Findings

GP Enthusiasm: Over two-thirds (67%) of UK GPs are keen to prescribe tech tools specifically designed for dementia patients. These assistive technologies aim to empower individuals, allowing them to remain in their own homes while maintaining a fulfilling life.

Independence Matters: A staggering 88% of GPs believe that people with dementia who can continue living independently at home experience more fulfilling lives. Moreover, 77% of these doctors are convinced that such independence contributes to longevity.

Existing Challenges: Despite existing technologies, there's room for improvement. Most current solutions focus on monitoring patients rather than actively supporting their day-to-day activities. This gap frustrates 86% of surveyed GPs, who recognize the need for more effective tools.
