The new app, currently in the Google Play & coming soon to IOS, is a completely FREE app, with NO ADS! We know… It’s a rare find.
Not only is the app free, but it is available in 18 languages and can help users to identify seizure triggers. The app boasts medication reminders, data sharing capabilities, and Ketogenic Diet monitoring!
With just 23 days to reach there goal of $3,873, the fate of the app is in our hands. If you think this app would benefit the epilepsy community and believe in their goal, consider donating to their Kickstarter campaign here. They’ve already raised $2,046 and hope to raise the remaining balance by October 15, 2018.
The developers behind the app were inspired by their daughter, Oliva, to create the app. You can read more about their story below…
“Our daughter Olivia is our inspiration for the Epilepsy Journal App. Olivia has a refractory and severe epilepsy which began at age 1. Once her epilepsy began we were advised by our physicians to keep a written epilepsy journal, in order to track trends and treatment response overtime. Although the journal was helpful in allowing us to objectively monitor the effectiveness of her epilepsy treatments, it was very time consuming and tended to be disorganized; As well, the hundreds of pages of notes did not help us when it became most critical to quickly and accurately summarize months worth of seizure history, (for example during emergency hospital visits or follow up appointments). During our experience navigating the neurology health care system, we found accurate and effective communication to be a key factor in successfully working with doctors and achieving ideal seizure control. We created this app as a free and simple way to monitor your epilepsy; track trends and patterns, objectively determine effectiveness of seizure treatment overtime, and improve success of doctors appointments. Since epilepsy contains dozens of ever changing variables, we decided to organize data into simple visuals which demonstrate seizure trends and patterns over a time span of months to years. Our epilepsy journal allows you to quickly document all the important variables concerning your epilepsy, and to generate a simple and easy to read report to print out or email your doctors. We hope that this app enables you to grasp a better understanding of your own individual epilepsy, and that it empowers you as an effective communicator and advocate within your epilepsy health care team.” – Christina Cosic (Tina)
