The alarm alerts bystanders and rescue workers to what is wrong about the person, and to what they should (and should not) do. Bystanders can also easily contact people whom the user has selected on the app. And ‘Eppy’ has a ‘Follow-me’ feature (for walking or cycling, for example), allowing a partner, parent or other contact to always be able to check where the user is located.” Stichting Nationaal Epilepsie Fons [National Epilepsy Fund], Netherlands | http://bit.ly/JvHnJn

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.”
