Description

Open Seizure Detector is an experimental epileptic (tonic-clonic)seizure detector / alert system that utilises a smart-watch todetect shaking, and raises an alarm for a carer. If the wearer ofthe watch shakes for 15-20 seconds, the device will produce awarning. If the shaking continues for another 10 seconds it raisesan alarm. The phone app communicates with the smart-watch and canraise alarms in one of two ways: - If it is being used in the home,other devices can connect to it via WiFi to receive alarmnotifications. - If it is being used outside it can be configuredto send SMS text message notifications that include the location ofthe user, as wifi notifications are not possible away from home Thesystem includes self-checking to make sure it is functioningcorrectly, and will beep to warn the user of faults to help providereassurance that it is working. You need a Pebble Smart Watch or aPebble Time Smart Watch that is connected to your Android devicefor OpenSeizureDetector to work.. Note that manufacture of Pebblewatches has been discontinued, but this app will continue to workdespite this (and pebble watches are still available at themoment). Note that there is a version currently being tested thatprovides support for a high-end Garmin watch as an alternative -this will be released in a few weeks. It does not use any externalweb services to detect seizures or raise alarms, so is notdependent on an internet connection to work, and no subscriptionsto commercial services are needed. Please see the InstallationInstructions for help with setting up this app. I recommendsubscribing to email updates to the OpenSeizureDetector web site orFacebook Page if you use the app so I can contact users if I findan issue you should know about. Note that this app is experimentalso may not be reliable at the moment, but comments would beappreciated. That said, I have had some positive feedback fromusers saying that it has detected tonic-clonic seizures reliably,but it has not been subjected to 'proper' qualification testing.For more details of how this works see the OpenSeizureDetector website. Note that this is free software with source code releasedunder the Open Source Gnu Public Licence, so is covered by thefollowing disclaimer which is part of the licence: I provide theprogram "as is" without warranty of any kind, either expressed orimplied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties ofmerchantability and fitness for purpose. the entire risk as to thequality and performance of the programme is with you. (apologiesfor the legalese, but a couple of people have mentioned that Ishould be careful and include a disclaimer explicitly rather thanjust use the one in the licence).

OpenSeizureDetector Client 1.4 APK
This is a client application to accompany theOpenSeizureDetector Pebble Watch based Epileptic (tonic-clonic)seizure detector.This client application will connect to the OpenSeizureDetector App via a wifi network connection anddisplay the status of the detector, and raise audible and visualalarms if a seizure is detected.See the main OpenSeizureDetector App for more details.To use this applicationSet up the main OpenSeizureDetector App on the 'server' phone and note the IPaddress of the server (shown on the main display).Open the OpenSeizureDetector Client App on the clientphone/tablet. Unless you are really lucky you will get a 'WarningNo Connection to Server' error displayed in red on the screenOpen the menu and select 'Settings' and open the 'Server IPAddress' setting. Enter the IP address of the server phone andpress OK, then use the back button to get back to the mainscreen.The client display should now duplicate the display on the mainOpenSeizureDetector 'server' phone
OpenSeizureDetector Locator 1.3 APK
This simple app is intended to help you findsomeone that may not be able to tell you where they are (if forexample they have had a seizure which has been detected by theOpenSeizureDetector main app, or if they can become confused.The OpenSeizureDetector Locator app needs to be installed on theirphone, and they use the settings to set a secret password. If theirphone receives an SMS text message containing that secret password,it will reply to the message with a special GeoSMS text messagethat contains their location.The OpenSeizureDetector Locator app can detect a GeoSMS messagebeing received and display the location on a map (I recommendinstalling OsmAndto provide the map function, as this works without an internetconnection).So to work best, OpenSeizureDetector Locator should be locatedon both phones - that of the person who needs to be found, and thatof the person looking. Seehttp://www.openseizuredetector.org.uk/?page_id=600">OpenSeizureDetector.org.ukpage for more details.There are obvious privacy issues associated with this app, soplease set the password to something suitably obscure so no-one canguess it.
