We are grateful for the mention of our SeizSafe crisis monitoring system in the March newsletter of the association "Apoyo Dravet".
The collaboration with this association allows us to validate our hardware and software with real people affected.
Encore lab has installed a SeizSafe device in the Russi Institut epilepsy unit at the Quiron Teknon Hospital in Barcelona. The objective is the collection of data to clinically validate SeizSafe. The hospital has an EEG monitoring and surveillance unit for patients with epilepsy.
Last 24thMay, the Spanish Epilepsy Federation (FEDE) held in Madrid at ONCE facilities, the first research in epilepsy fair, to celebrate the Epilepsy National Day (25thMay). This event allowed families and patients with epilepsy to know about the main novelties in the sector, the current state of research and the palliative and curative technologies currently in the market. Encore Lab presented their product SeizSafe (monitoring system to detect epileptic seizures during night).Several attendees to the event were interested in the development status of SeizSafe and its expected entry into the market date.
Encore Lab attended the Mobile World Congress, invited by EIC SME Instrument Business Acceleration Services from the EC. We were able to learn about all the latest developments, especially the IoT sector and the new M2M connectivity (5G systems). We also participated in the MWC 2018 Brokerage Event. Based on 20-minute bilateral meetings between companies depending on their interests and objectives. The main idea was to find technological partners and set collaboration agreements for future projects.
Encore Lab, has been selected among the 79 most innovative companies in Europe for its SeizSafe project: nocturnal epileptic seizure detector and monitor (www.seizsafe.com ). This project was included within the 12 best technological innovation proposals (https://sme.easme-web.eu/?b=921210262) Our colleague Diego Polo held a Pitch at the MWC, for an audience of investors and potential partners among which were: Bosch Venture Capital, Caixa Capital Risc, Digital Attraxion, Dynax Ventures, Faraday Ventures, Hexagon, IBM, Inveready, Lanta Capital, Bank Sabadell, Mastercard, Oxford Global Ventures and Telefonica
In SeizSafe we have prepared this small guide with some simple steps to follow in case of epileptic crisis. Hopefully it will be of great help to all.
