Researchers at King’s College London, UK, are currently recruiting adults with epilepsy to complete an online survey.
They want to find out about factors that might influence people’s choices to use mobile technology (such as wearable activity trackers and smartphone apps) to help measure and manage their health.
This study is part of a larger project called RADAR-CNS that is exploring the use of mobile technology to better measure and manage symptoms in daily life for people with epilepsy. More information can be found on the RADAR-CNS website
