About the solution

The inventor came up with this device because she was frustrated by not finding a solution that could help her to predict her son Tejas’ seizures. The boy has epilepsy since birth and often requires emergency medical care to bring his seizures under control.

Rajlakshmi felt the need to have a solution that would give her enough lead time to rush her boy to a hospital at the fastest possible time, so that his life and wellbeing was not compromised.

She came up with T-Jay, a device that uses Artificial Intelligence to help predict seizures. “The T-Jay glove has several sensors that extracts information from the palm of a hand. This information is transmitted continuously to Poketee, which is a personal data gateway and intelligent system that comes with T-Jay. Poketee keeps sending this information to our cloud environment at set intervals”, it says on the official website.

The inventor built her own company, TerraBlue XT, in order to manufacture and commercialize the product.

“In my mind, it looked simple: If it is electrical signals or different signals from the body, we have the technology to capture it… So why is nobody doing it? If no one’s doing it, does it mean it’s not possible”, the mother explained.

Rajlakshmi also launched a telemedicine platform, a system through which epileptic patients and their families can avail treatment and counselling through teleconference with prominent neurosurgeons and experts from different parts of the country. She is also following up T-jay with Xaant, a wearable that traces the inner realm of a mind's pathways to generate real time data when the user is out any method to calm his senses.

The team behind TJay already made clinical trials and hardware and software testing. The product is patent-pending.

The entrepreneur is working on making the T-Jay able to help people with other neurogical diseases such Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It will launched on June 2018.
