Future of Health- Wearable Technology Assists People Affected By Epilepsy

The Second Opinion project out of the California College of the Arts challenged design students to engineer products that make people’s lives healthier in some way. Designer Sara Kei has developed a concept for combining wireless sensors and wearable technology to help people affected by epilepsy. In the system, an EEG earpiece monitors the wearer’s brainwaves, communicating with an accelerometer-equipped necklace piece. The necklace alerts doctors and family members when a seizure is triggered, and provides guidance to bystanders through an embedded speaker.

We will be researching (with your help) the development of key trends that impact health and wellbeing and then using our findings to develop with partners concepts that UNICEF and likeminded organizations could consider deploying across the world.
