About the solution

When he was looking for a project in seventh grade, Amir said, he heard a family friend who is a neurologist, talking about the expensive and complicated equipment epilepsy patients had to rely on to monitor their seizures. Amir thought it would be better to use an everyday device. With the help of his father, who is an associate professor with the University of Florida College of Engineering, Amir started building a software that harnesses the accelerometer sensor inside a smartphone. The app, Seizario, distinguishes normal movement from movements associated with seizure, and alerts family members or caregivers by email and text message.
