What's it about?
This study is part of a large project about wearable devices for epilepsy, which are used to detect epileptic seizures. The aim is to explore how people use them, and what their opinions are about them.
We are looking for the opinions of people with epilepsy, carers, family, friends, people who receive alerts from wearable alarms and healthcare professionals.
This study will contribute to the evaluation and future developments of wearable devices that detect seizures.
