Idea Name: EPICARE
Slogan: Making life better
Startup Domain: Good healh & well-being
Abstract:
    An advanced automated system for onset epileptic seizure prediction, preventing accidental deaths and improving patients social life, and improving their health care. The long-term goal of the project
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    In Pakistan their is no proper epileptic healthcare system, our system will predict epileptic seizures which will help patients to live properly in society and prevent accidents.In rural areas their is no neurology specialist ,patients will be able to use our smart app,which will predict seizures.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Epilepsy affects 2% of global population suffers from epilepsy,1/10th of them are in Pakistan.Our system will provide an app for any epileptic patient ,which will help them in better living by predicting their seizures.
How will the solution works
    We aim at designing an automated system that predicts and estimates seizure occurrence, based on the frequency, pattern and intensity of seizure and processes real time data analysis on cloud.We will use Emotiv EEG signals, Accelerometer sensor data and patient history for real time seizure prediction and send notification to patients caretaker via cloud.Furthermore smart app will also also be able to predict seizures based upon patient history and monitor overall health of patient.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The systems developed till now, do not have good accuracy. Furthermore no system has till now worked on patient seizure history as a requisite for accurate seizure prediction.American epilepsy foundation and American National institute of neurological disorders and stroke (NIND) are our competitors
