EpDetect (epileptic seizures)

EpDetect (epileptic seizures)


EpDetect will monitor the movement of the person while the phone is in their pocket or worn on a belt. The software will differentiate the movements associated with epilepsy from normal movement.

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.

Needs work, but on the right track A very good beta, Robert. The sensitivity controls are spot on, and it even picks up a drop fit. Only things wrong - it crashes when you cancel an alarm, and the alert and alarm need to be MUCH louder. Right now, they wouldn't get much attention. Otherwise, keep going!
