The app that could keep you safe

The app that could keep you safe

There is some good news if you are concerned about SUDEP (Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy).  In collaboration with NHS, clinicians and other professionals, SUDEP Action have just launched the first ever self-monitoring app that allows a person with epilepsy to self-monitor known risk factors. 

When you download EpSMon it takes you through an initial assessment process asking you questions about your seizures, medication, medical appointments and lifestyle choices.  This initial data is analysed and the app will then make recommendations based on the calculated risks for certain areas. It may for example prompt you to seek an earlier medical appointment if deemed necessary.  Every three months the app will reassess risk factors by prompting you with a series of questions.

The app is currently only available for iphone, with an android version expected to come out later this year.   There is more information on the app including cost and a link for downloading here.
