Product Snapshot: Wave EEG Monitor
Application: Epilepsy Patient Remote Monitoring
Key Technologies: Smartphone, 3G Cellular Network, Wave Foundation Framework, Bluetooth EEG Amplifier, GPS
Background: There are 1,000,000 Epilepsy Patients in the United States. Approximately 300,000 are below the age of 14. About 10% of those are severe enough cases, where monitoring there brain activity becomes important to provide the necessary patient care. Up to now, monitoring could only occur either in a stationary fashion or with limited mobility.
Situation: The population of Epilepsy Patients require a solution which would allow them to live a normal life, while still giving them the necessary monitoring in order to provide exceptional patient care.
Solution: Wave Technology Group has designed a solution encompassing the Wave Foundation Framework, Bluetooth EEG Amplifier, GPS, Smartphone, and 3G Network. This application allows for a patient to live a normal life while monitoring their brain activity. The solution streams real time data to a central monitoring station along with GPS location and then allows the application to apply rules developed jointly between Wave Technology Group and University of Chicago Epilepsy Center, in order to provide exceptional care and feedback to the patient. For example, the monitoring can provide notification to the patient, parent or other caretaker, as well as dispatch Emergency Management Personnel to the location of the patient when a seizure is detected.
1. Remote real time monitoring of the Epilepsy Patient.
2. Creates a central repository of data for future investigation.
3. Creates an facility to provide care to the patient beyond what is now possible.
4. Provides a better quality of life for the patient.
5. Provides true mobility to the patient beyond the hospital walls.
