SeizSafe

Device for detecting epileptic seizures during the nighttime and alerting caregivers so patients can be always well aided.

OBJECTIVES

The main goal of the project is to develop an non-intrusive integrated system to monitor epilepsy patients at night-time and alert relatives or caregivers when a seizure is detected, generating also useful information for improving medical treatments.

This system intents to be a solution for:

  • Minimizing the consequences of convulsions, detecting the seizures immediately after they occur and thus reducing their duration.
  • Improving patients' life quality, providing them with security and comfort.
  • Improving relatives and caregivers' quality of life, providing them with an alert system so they can sleep in a different room from patients.
  • Providing doctors with a tool for monitoring patients, allowing for personalized diagnosis and drug prescription, adapted to each patient.
  • Generating a database useful for medical research.
