Epilert

Overview of the eHealth solution

Epilert is a waterproof wearable device that detects and monitors epilepsy seizures using biometry and machine learning (Epilepsy Monitoring Unit). It is a smart wrist bracelet connected to a mobile application via bluetooth.

Epilert contains a monitoring system that enables epileptic patients, their caregivers and doctors to monitor patients’ vital signs, daily lifestyle, medication taking and seizures through dedicated mobile apps

A SPECIAL APP FOR EVERY USE-CASE:
FOR PATIENTS:
The mobile application is connected to the bracelet via Bluetooth and provides a 24/7 data feed. It enables patients to become actively engaged in the management of their condition and helps them monitor their seizures by having a clear overview of their daily habits including their sleeping schedule, medication intake, and diet.
FOR CAREGIVERS:
Epilert’s system will notify caregivers by SMS and a phone call with the exact location when a seizure is detected. In addition to that, Epilert’s caregiver mobile app provides a real-time update about the patient’s condition. This has a positive influence on family members as it will help them cope better with their situation, further optimize their caregiver role and effectively deal with one of the unique characteristics of epilepsy, its unpredictability.
FOR DOCTORS:
Epidoc is a special dashboard for medical doctors enabling them to visualize all data related to their patients. Data like frequency and duration of seizures, biosignals data, and other statistics collected through the bracelet are essential to establish the right diagnosis and provide an adapted treatment.

Health System Challenges and Interventions

Challenges

People who suffer from epilepsy may experience health problems and seizures anywhere and everywhere. Therefore, managing epilepsy patients can be challenging, due to the complex nature of the disease.

Interventions

When a seizure is detected, an alert is immediately sent to caregivers with the patient’s localization. All seizure records are saved and sent to a chosen physician in charge of the patient. The collected data will be saved on EPIDOC, a dashboard made especially for doctors to help them monitor their patients’ seizure records and understand their daily habits for customized medical care.
