A wearable garment, the WEMU, consisting of a top and cap is able to monitor epileptic seizures, enabling this, for the first time, to be done outside a clinical environment. Previously, to get an accurate diagnosis and determine the specific course of treatment required a person to spend time in a hospital being monitored. With this garment data can be collected while the wearer goes about their normal day. Data is transferred via Bluetooth to a smartphone and then uploaded to the cloud for examination by clinicians. Overall an elegant, practical and valuable wearable.
An attempt was made to raised development funds via Indiegogo, unfortunately this failed to meet its target. The following video comes from the crowd sourcing campaign and gives a deeper explanation of the technological solution.
