Summary

The EpSMon (Epilepsy Self Monitoring) app is designed to help adults with epilepsy to identify, track and share individual risk factors for epilepsy and self manage their epilepsy between clinical appointments.

 It helps people with epilepsy to:

  • Find out more about risk factors for Sudden Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) and how to track and manage these
  • Review and track personal risk in epilepsy, and monitor seizure frequency and type
  • Choose to share anonymous data to inform future research into reducing risks associated with epilepsy
  • Choose to share review results with GPs and other care team members, and inform medication decisions
Regularly re-assess risk factors, prompted by reminders every 3 months to complete an assessment of seizure types experienced, their severity and frequency.

Reviews

Reviewer: SUDEP action (Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy), the UK patient group which developed the app.
Review:

“Life can get busy. Keeping track of your epilepsy or general well-being may not be easy. National guidelines encourage regular review of your epilepsy with your GP, but this may only be once in a year.

How do you check your risk the rest of the time? 

The award-winning app EpSMon can help you self-monitor in between your visits to doctors.

After answering a short assessment, EpSMon will produce an easy to read summary showing you:• which risks are getting better• which have worsened• and which have stayed the same 

So you can show this summary to your GP on your next visit. It can also help you decide whether to seek help earlier than your next planned visit.EpSMon is designed so that you can be aware of why and when a medical review of your epilepsy is important.”
