Mother Created a Life-Saving Device for her epileptic son.

About the solution

Soon after Rajlakshmi Borthakur son was born in 2011, he was diagnosed with epilepsy, which lead him from a rather young age, to start having epileptic seizures. While his condition quickly worsened, and he began suffering from full-blown seizures that required immediate medical attention, his mother started reading papers, journals and medical books on neurology, in order to better understand her son's condition.

With some knowledge on how the brain works, and her fair understanding in electronics, she came up with a concept of athe device to which she called TJay. This innovation consisted on a wearable device and an ML/AI-based software solution that provided predictions before the onset of an epileptic fit, by tracking brain activities, vital signs, physical activities, stress and sleep patterns. This information is transmitted continuously to Poketee, which is a personal data gateway and intelligent system that comes with TJay, and that keeps sending this information to a cloud environment at set intervals. This allows for parents, physicians and centered healthcare providers to have information readily available, thus improving quality of life of the patient.

As Rajlakshmi Borthakur puts it “What I have learnt by working on this device is that I could not only improve the life of my son but of millions around the world.”
