If you are elderly, suffering from epilepsy, and live at home, you probably either live by yourself, or with a life companion.
If you live with another person,you have the opportunity of letting EDDI monitor you so the other person will be notified if you have a tonic-clonic epileptic seizure. You wear Senses and the other person can have the A-Unit.
EDDI can help to provide both you and the other person with a new freedom and safety:
- Your Freedom as EDDI offers you to have some time on your own instead of close monitoring
- Your Safety in terms of you knowing, that EDDI will notify the other person if a tonic-clonic epileptic seizure occurs, so that you are not alone during and after your seizure.
- Their Safety in terms of the other person knowing if a seizure occurs and their Freedom not having to monitor you all the time for “just in case”
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:
If you live alone, EDDI will help you keep track of your tonic-clonic epileptic seizures, and thereby make sure that you have all the right information for the physicians, which means your medication can be adjusted accordingly. Visiting the physician you bring the diary information with a track record of your tonic-clonic epileptic seizures. Additional you are able to monitor seizure during the night and keep track of events the day before looking into a pattern.
