Team Epi-C Project Overview
Epi-C is an app for the Windows 8 Phone that has two main parts:
1. A fall detection part which uses a custom fall detection algorithm to detect falls, it then plays an on spot alarm so that nearby people can be notified, it also sends the victim's GPS coordinates to predefined people (such as guardians or emergency services) so that help can arrive as soon as possible.
2. A portable EEG, the NeuroSky Mindwave, which is connected via bluetooth to a Windows 8 Phone and constantly records the patient's brainwaves, these can then be uploaded to the cloud on the press of a button, so that doctors and therapists can get information which is extremely useful in neurological disorders.
