Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder which affects 1 in 26 people worldwide. It can have a relapsing, remitting, and unpredictable course. Treatment of epilepsy can be frustrating, and has been accurately referred to as being similar to the popular “whack a mole” game. Whether your epilepsy is mild or severe, refractory or controlled, it is critical to objectively and consistently monitor certain factors such as number of seizures, seizure triggers, AED drug or ketone levels, and other vital information. Keeping a detailed epilepsy journal will allow you to quickly notice any changes to your epilepsy, as well as provide you with impartial evidence as to whether your epilepsy treatment is truly effective or losing effectiveness over time.
In Epilepsy Journal you can record your seizure very easily with as much as detail you would like. Offering you a visual representation of all of your data and a whole section devoted to help you understand your epilepsy by identifying trends. The app organizes your data and generates 5 different professional reports for your medical team to help you objectively convey information. From our own experience with epilepsy, we found that it was difficult to remember everything during a doctor’s appointment and that is why this app is built with the purpose of improving the communication between the patient and their medical team. Additionally, this app can help you keep track of medications with reminders and help you determine the effectiveness of your therapy!
Pick from 22 languages to customize your app. The language included are: Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, Dutch, English, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, and Swedish.
Connect the app to your smart watch to always have it on hand because you never know when a seizure can occur. Customize the app to your style by changing the theme and choose the button look that best suits you!
My daughter Olivia is an inspiration for Epilepsy Journal. Olivia has a refractory and severe epilepsy which began at age 1. We were advised by our physicians to keep a written 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. 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.
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.
We are a very small team, pouring our hearts into this project that we attend to after our daytime jobs. I thank everyone that has been involved in this process and who had helped and support this app. Thank you to all of my dear friends around the world who translated the app so it can be fit to help people in different countries in the comfort of their own language.
