Summary

Helps people with epilepsy manage and improve their own health via seizure-management tools. Contains an interactive seizure diary that allows time, type, and length of seizure to be recorded, and a code assigned to each type of seizure. Information in the app offers an overview of the approximately 40 different types of seizures, plus medication facts, details on managing epilepsy, and advice on first aid. Developed after consultation with young people (to which the app may have particular appeal). [Note that a very similar/identical app is also available on Apple from the Epilepsy Society/MCM Net, titled ‘Epilepsy Guide’; http://bit.ly/LRGwZv]
