Project using Microsoft Band and Azure offers potential breakthrough for people with epilepsy

 |   Tracy Ith

A pioneering project in the U.K. that uses the Microsoft Band and Azure cloud services could soon allow people with epilepsy to predict when they will have seizures.

MyCareCentric Epilepsy is aimed at helping epilepsy patients while reducing health care costs. It records patients’ data such as sleep patterns, heart rate and temperature, and then compares that information with their medical records and a log of when seizures occur.

The project was developed by Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Kent, Shearwater Systems and Graphnet Health. Learn more about it at Microsoft News Centre UK.
