A BIRAC funded enterprise developing technology-driven products to help patients with epilepsy.
Epilepto App: A Multi-lingual App for Self-Management of Epilepsy.
The Epilepto App is primarily designed for Epilepsy patients. Epilepto focuses on self management topics such as medication reminders, medication adherence, and seizure diary. The Epilepto team also designed a cloud based emergency call and message system which would send SMS and generate a call to primary caregivers. The patient can save a number of caregiver contacts inside the App. The Emergency service system also detects the present location of the patient and conveys to caregivers. This would help the caregivers to reach patients quickly during the onset of seizures. The medication reminder is designed to generate alarms on exact timings of medicine intakes, which ensures the patient takes the corresponding medicines and follows medication adherence. People with epilepsy can now need not rely on notebooks and papers to note down the seizure events’ details which would help the doctors to prescribe or change the medications. These details can now be saved inside the Epilepto App precisely without the fear of losing important information. The prescription images and details can also be entered and saved inside the application. The Epilepto team got all the necessary assistance and services from neurologists at DMC Ludhiana, which helped to create a medically and technologically sound mobile application. Adding to solving basic problems of epilepsy patients, Epilepto App also provides informational and motivational content. They have also created a chatbot to answer the queries related to epilepsy and seizure. All the features in the application including chatbot are made to avail in 6 languages (English, Bengali, Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu) aimed to reach people with all socio-cultural backgrounds.
