Thank you to Katie Kirby for the new article on mobile phones in epilepsy care. Full text article can be accessed through here.
It includes information on:
Apps for patients and caregivers:
- apps to be used as a seizure diary, e.g.: Epilepsy Society App and My Epilepsy Diary
- information provision apps, such as Epilepsy Vault
- medication reminers, eg.: Dosecast - Medication Reminder, Medication Log
Apps for healthcare providers:
- medication information: e.g.: Medication guide, Generic Drug Encyclopedia
- information about drug interactions: Drug interaction, Drug Interactions (A-Z)
- dose calculators, e.g: Creatinine Clearance Calc, etc.
Apps for detection of epilepsy:
- Epdetect is an iPhone app that uses motion sensors to detect seizures.
- Smartmonitor's Smartwatch that transmits information about the seizure and the location of the patient to a pre-determined contact
- Affectiva's Q Sensor that uses galvanic skin response rather than movement to detect seizures, and to record their severity
A very nice article. Thank you, Katie.
