AURA chose an open science policy to

  • mutualize the efforts of all the parties involved

  • keep the R&D efforts as transparent and reproducible as possible

  • reduce barriers to entry, misunderstanding, releases from companion systems

 
AURA is creating a multidisciplinary community integrating open-source and open-hardware philosophies into the world of health.

"My biggest fear,

is to have a seizure whilst I carry my

daughter in my

arms"

 Aura has 3 main goals:

  • Improving the daily tracking of seizures

  • Reducing the risk of accidents caused by unpredictable seizures, directly or indirectly

  • Bringing more peace of mind and autonomy to epileptic patients

The Companion System

PICTO-PATCH.png

A connected

patch

A connected patch that embeds a seizure detection system and allows the patient a prompt reaction.

PICTO-APP_MOBILE.png

A mobile application

An intuitive and playful companion app for mobile devices that enables the patient to have a better understanding of his disease, to design a journal of seizures, to share information with neurologists and other caregivers, etc.

 

How does it work?

 
Aura aims to deliver a detection device based on real-time monitoring of physiological signs that occur prior to an epileptic seizure. Thanks to the embedded algorithms based on the latest artificial intelligence technologies, the system works with all patients and enables a customized monitoring.
