The project's vision is to develop an intelligent non-invasive alarming system, which is transportable by the patient. The device automatically measures the brain activity. It will be capable of predicting the upcoming seizures considerably before seizure onsets and provides the patient with this information for example by sending a text message to the patients cell phone. This in turn will allow the patient to assess the risk of his actual situation and acting accordingly to improve his safety and privacy. Another important output of the project is a large and well-documented European Database on Epilepsy.
The EPILEPSIAE consortium funded under the FP7-ICT Programme (Subprogramme on advanced ICT for risk assessment and patient safety) for 3 years, consist of six partners from 4 European countries: 2 academic teams (Portugal, Germany), 1 mixed academic/clinic team (France), 2 clinic teams (Portugal, Germany), 1 industrial company (Italy), covering the whole value chain from theoretical conception to market products and final users.
