Dirk Loeckx (Epihunter)
Turning on the light when the brain switches off
One out of three people with epilepsy suffer from uncontrollable seizures despite medication. Epihunter’s first solution is for people with silent, difficult to notice absence seizures. We combine an EEG wearable to read brain waves with smart AI running on the smartphone. Thus we make these seizures visible to the environment (family, friends, teachers, caregivers) and collect objective information on seizure occurrence and frequency. Through our platform solutions, we empower patient insights and improve treatment options by making daily real-life data available and connecting patients, health care practitioners, pharma, and research. This talk will tell about Epihunter’s vision and approach and place it in a broader view on the evolution of healthcare.
