Dialog helps people get a better understanding of their condition.

Seattle-based tech product design and development company Artefact has created a concept device called Dialog, which is designed to help people with epilepsy understand their condition better and make more informed decisions about how to take care of themselves.

Like most health trackers, the concept device collects data about the wearer and their environment. It comes with an accompanying smartphone app that helps the wearers monitor their condition and helps them understand the factors that trigger seizures. The app also provides insights and information to help users have more meaningful discussions with their doctors.

Users can log information about their condition into Dialog. Dialog also sends notifications to the wearer about their medications or alerts them to changes in their threshold so they can go to a safe place or take the necessary steps to prevent or prepare for a seizure.

Worn as a small patch attached to the body or on a wristband, Dialog also connects the wearers to their health care provider or family members and can give bystanders instructions in cases of emergency. Wearers can configure the settings for these so that they have complete control over the extent to which care providers or bystanders are involved.

The components needed to build Dialog are currently being developed and tested.
