Epilepsy? Yep, there’s an app for that.

There are apps to find the best restaurant or to find you when you’re lost, but an app for epilepsy? Now that just blows my mind. In a two second Google search, I found links to information on at least three apps relating to epilepsy. Here’s what I found:

First, there’s the one launched by The National Society for Epilepsy (NSE), which promises to offer essential first aid information, including a step by step guide to the recovery position, along with information about epilepsy.

Next, there’s the one launched by Epilepsy.com called My Seizure Diary. The promote it as a state-of-the-art, comprehensive data-gathering and reporting tool designed to improve epilepsy care.

Then, there is the Epilepsy Detector which is an accelerometer based mobile phone application that uses advanced signal processing to detect epileptic seizures.

There are probably even more apps for epilepsy out there and in development. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
