As care personnel there may be many benefits from EDDI for both you and your residents as well.
EDDI could possibly release resources, where you would not have to oversee the persons with epilepsy both night and day personally. This means more freedom for you in planning activities as well as greater freedom for the person with epilepsy not to feel monitored, enabling a little private time, for those who wish to have so.
EDDI can provide greater safety for persons with epilepsy, that are not under continuous surveillance – in these cases you as care personnel will be notified via A-Unit if a seizure occurs, and thereby make sure to get to the person fast to help the situation.
EDDI provides the possibility for surveillance of more persons at the same time both during the day and nights. This permits that no persons with epilepsy will have to go through a tonic-clonic epileptic seizure without someone with them during and after.
IMPORTANT. EDDI is NOT able to replace a person. EDDI is a helping aid, which can make the day and the part about notifying (and in a later version writing down) in relation to tonic-clonic epileptic seizures much easier.
Perspective of a future version of EDDI:
EDDI collects and register tonic-clonic epileptic seizures. The information may be used in dialog with health care professionals on medication, planning and handling of the specific person with epilepsy.
