EPILEPSIAE is the Evolving Platform for Improving Living Expectation of Patients Suffering from IctAl Events or seizures.
Epilepsy is a generic term for a variety of chronic recurring seizures. It should not be considered as a disease, but a symptom of an underlying neurological disorder. The mission of the EPILEPSIAE project is to use ICT to empower epileptic patients to monitor their own risks and improve their safety in daily life, thereby strengthening their social integration. The ambitious aims of the project are to build a very large database on epilepsy, to be capable of forecasting an oncoming seizure, and to develop a wearable hardware device to alert patients before a seizure, thus enabling them to take appropriate safety actions.
