I am currently in the process of designing an app to assist people with photosensitive epilepsy. The app prototype allows businesses and individuals to alert users about locations and events in which flashing lights are present. These flashing lights can induce seizures in some people with epilepsy, like myself. I will be entering my prototype in The Epilepsy Foundation shark tank competition in hopes of receiving funding to move my prototype from an idea into an actual product.
What inspired you (or your team)?
Because I have photosensitive epilepsy, I have had to miss out on events due to the fear that I may have a seizure. There is not currently an universal database that contains all of this information
