With the infrastructure that we have for monitoring night-time tonic-clonic epileptic seizures, we are able to extend the monitor options available.
We are limited more by our imagination than by the technology that we can integrate with our system & data servers.
Linking a smartwatch to our system is something we are currently actively working on.
By using the smartwatch we can monitor heart rate & blood pressure, we could even measure the accelerometer.
Combining the measurements with the optical monitoring will help to increase the accuracy of data stored.
Update : Now actively recruiting volunteers
Our development is coming to the final stage before field testing. If you would like to be invited to take part please complete this form Epilepsy Alarm trials
We built our epilepsy smartwatch alarm using Andriod technology, this means we can reach more users with our personal epilepsy alarms.
Our app will be available in the Google App store & will enable users to send an alert to a list of carers in the event of a seizure being detected.

What is holding us back?
Really only our imagination, the world wide web was complete science fiction in 1980!
Now we can watch live television pictures on a device in our pocket not connected to anything by a cable!
We are open to exploring all opportunities to improve monitoring epileptic seizures, we may even be able to help researchers identify possible cures for epilepsy as we can gather more & more date but that is a little way off at the moment.
