Microsoft is helping epilepsy patients predict when they will have a seizure

doctorPeople with epilepsy could soon be able to predict when they will have a seizure under a “pioneering” project that uses Microsoft products to monitor health.

MyCareCentric Epilepsy, a program run by a private/public consortium, will see patients wear a Microsoft Band to record data such as sleep patterns, exercise, heart rate and temperature.

This information will be used alongside a log of when seizures occur and a patient’s medical records to build up the individual’s condition. Over time, Microsoft Azure – the company’s cloud computing service – could potentially “learn” when someone is about to have a seizure and warn them before it happens.
