On aging there is a decrease in the cognitive functions of the brain which can result in behavioral anomalies such as wandering and susceptibility to fall, typical of patients with Alzheimer's disease. In order to learn how to manage patients with cognitive impairment it is necessary to non-intrusively monitor brain activity in conjunction with body movements. To facilitate the translation of insights derived through wireless monitoring into robust strategies for crisis prevention and management, we provide a preliminary assessment of a patient monitoring infrastructure, and we discuss related issues and challenges.
