When a seizure is detected it will warn the person that it is about to send an SMS message to a carer, in the case of a false alarm the person will be able to cancel the SMS alert. The SMS message contains time, GPS coordinates (if the phone has GPS) and a short message, allowing the carer to raise the alarm and take remedial action or call an ambulance. When the person recovers they press a button to cancel the alarm, which will initiate an end of emergency SMS message.
Epdetect was developed by Kenneth Austin and Robert Dlugosz.
We combined a heart rate monitoring watch (used in fitness) with a specific algorithm in an Android app to detect epileptic seizures which result in tachycardia or bradycardia. The resulting app was made mainly for nocturnal monitoring. This is different than the current technologies which are based on an accelerometer sensor embedded in the phone of the user.
It is a preclinical demonstrator for real-time detection of seizures based on heart rate. The system consists of a body hub ( a smart phone having Bluetooth Low Energy and Android Operating System) and a MIO Alpha Watch which are connected via Bluetooth. The seizure detection application is running on the body hub to classify the data from the Mio Alpha. It can generate a local alarm followed by sending an SMS message in case of a seizure. The user has the possibility to choose where to send the SMS, the amplitude and the temporal thresholds. In addition, the application detects when the system is disconnected or when the sensor is not in contact with the skin.
The application was tested on several mobile phones. We encountered a few problems with the bluetooth connection for older versions. The application worked in the background for a few minutes and after that it disconnected. We eliminated these problems by setting the app to work with its display turned on.
In case of a disconnection please do the following:
-Restart the Bluetooth connection.
-Leave the app to work with the display turned on.
Epilepsy Seizure Detect is a result of a my Erasmus internship at Eindhoven University of Technology (Signal Processing and Systems, Ambulatory Monitoring Group) and Kempenhaeghe Epilepsiecentrum (Netherlands). Epilepsy Seizure Detect was developed by Vlad-Mihai Teohari under supervision of Dr.Constantin Ungureanu, MsC. Vinh Bui, Prof. Dr.Johan Arends and Prof. Dr.Ronald Aarts.
More details including the limitations of the app can be found in the following article "Epilepsy Seizure Detection App for Wearable Technologies" submitted to the "WORKSHOP on Smart Healthcare and Healing Environments" which will take place in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on 11-13 November, 2014. The workshop is in conjunction with AMI'14, European Conference on Ambient Intelligence. You can find them on the following website: http://www.ami-conferences.org/2014 .

When you push the “Help, I’m having a seizure” button, if your mobile phone is near you, this app will record the shaking pattern of your phone and upload that information to a central server.

★ FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING: Some apps can only remind you to take your medication at the same time every day. Only Dosecast helps you take doses on a daily/weekly/monthly schedule, every X days/weeks, only on certain days of the week, or even after a pre-set number of hours or days since the last dose. Avoid dangerous overdoses by setting a maximum number of doses allowed per day or per 24 hours.
★ CUSTOMIZABLE DOSE AMOUNTS AND INSTRUCTIONS: Set the drug name, dosage information, directions, and notes that appear in the reminders for each dose. You can also track each drug's expiration date.
★ POSTPONE-ABLE REMINDERS: You can postpone a reminder before or after it goes off - by however long you need.
★ SMART SILENCING: Dosecast tracks when you're sleeping and when your treatment begins and ends, so there are no unwanted alarms.

It even logs late and missed doses so you can accurately track your drug compliance. If you forget to log a dose when you take it, you can edit the history later.
★ QUANTITY TRACKING AND REFILL ALERTS: Dosecast tracks the remaining quantity of each drug you enter and delivers a refill alert when running low. It will even track the number of refills remaining and alert you when you have no refills left!
★ MULTI-PERSON SUPPORT: Assign specific medications to different people (or even pets). Sort your medications by person, time of next dose, drug name, or drug type - so you can keep your whole family's medication schedule organized.
★ DOCTOR AND PHARMACY TRACKING: Use your contacts to track which doctor is prescribing which drug, as well as track the pharmacy and prescription number for each.
★ DRUG DATABASE: Entering drug information is easy! Simply pick your medication from our drug database to pre-populate the drug name, type, amount, strength, and route.
