Epilepsy Solutions

Presentation by Lorina Felicien, Development Manager, Epilepsy Solutions.

Epilepsy Solutions is a trading name of Independent Living Supplies Ltd, a provider of assistive technology and telecare products, established in 2011.

There are many different epilepsy monitoring solutions available on the market which can make it difficult to choose the right product for the different types of seizures that present themselves and some solutions are just not suitable for the different environments we live in.

Our aim is to ensure that the correct equipment has been recommended to capture a seizure in as many environments as possible as well as making it discreet and easy for the user to wear and maintain. We will also provide all the support and training required so that family and Carers understand how the equipment works, make simple adjustments and maintain the equipment.

In this presentation, Lorina will describe the Inspyre wearable / app-based epilepsy monitoring solution.

Easy Reading

Presentation/Demonstration by Klaus Miesenberger, Professor of Computer Science and Peter Heumader, PhD student from the Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria.

Klaus talks about the development of the Easy Reading software tool to help support people with a cognitive disability to access web content. His colleague, Peter, demonstrates the tool during the presentation using a Firefox browser extension.

MiiCare

Presentation by Daniel Waller, MiiCare.

MiiCare is an innovative technology company offering Monica the first proactive digital health coach.

MiiCare strives to be the world’s leading AI-enabled platform for older adults and carers who want their independence and a better quality of life. We leverage the power of AI analytically, predictively, and socially to infer activities of daily living at home, predict possibly detrimental changes in physical and mental health, and offer companionship and intervention to help prevent emergencies and revolutionise care.

Monica uses AI to build a behavioural model of the user by collecting health measurements. Monica proactively communicates with people to raise alerts when abnormalities are detected and provides voice reminders for activities.

Monica also ensures that family members and care providers are notified as soon as abnormalities in normal behaviour are detected. This allows early, proactive measures to be taken rather than reacting to an event. This is because it tracks their behaviour, collects vital signs and symptoms and proactively communicates to people.
