Problem

Epileptic seizures manifest without warning and usually to the surprise of those around the person affected. Between 15 and 20% of death causes for people with epilepsy are related to SUDEP or prolonged seizures. Electroencephalography used in hospitals is not convenient for a long term use and the fewer existent applications create frequent fake alerts.

Solution

The system consists of a heart rate monitor which is connected via Bluetooth Low Energy to a mobile phone. If a seizure occurs, the application will trigger an alert with the GPS coordinates and the first aid instructions that a person has to follow in order to help. These instructions are described in a short movie with both audio and written guidance so everyone can help.

Innovation

EpSyDet combines the best existing technology in terms of heart rate to ensure the detection process for the long term. Every user has access to a personal diary with the previous heart rate activity where the seizures are marked. Doctors can take advantage of this information and provide a better treatment for their patients.
