Aura NGO mission is to develop a seizure detection system that will have a positive impact on the daily lives of people with epilepsy.
To do this, we are working with patient associations, the Teppe Institute and the Grenoble psychology laboratory on the acceptability and use that patients will have of this detection system. We are completing the process by designing a companion mobile application that will allow patients to better "control" their disease and promote exchanges with their neurologist.

Design of the companion mobile application:Aura

2020 - 2021

We have developed a human-centered approach in order to understand the daily life of patients as well as their relationship with the medical professionals and their entourage. Frequent discussions have enabled us to co-develop a connected patch along with a companion mobile application that responds to the real needs of patients (getting to safety in complete autonomy, interacting with entourage in the event of a seizure, relaxing thanks to adapted breathing exercises, discovering tips and tricks from other victims) The involvement of people with epilepsy, patient associations and health professionals in this conception process was essential in order to design a first application that would be as helpful as possible in their daily lives.


Study on the acceptability and take-up of connected systems

2020 - 2021

It is essential to evaluate the perceptions of people suffering from epilepsy concerning connected objects: representations, acceptability factors, acceptance. With the University of Grenoble Alpes (Inter-University Laboratory of Psychology) and the neurologists of La Teppe, we would like to know more about your life and what you think about these technological solutions.


Learning from exchanges with people with epilepsy


Sheizeen, designer of the Aura community, has conducted rich exchanges with various people suffering from epilepsy from the association Épilepsie France.  She shares with us the main lessons learned from these discussions as well as her recommendations for the development of a connected patch.


User experience for the companion mobile application


On the occasion of the CRI Summer school, a multidisciplinary group of students worked with the AURA team and patients from the association Epilepsie France to design several mock-ups of a companion mobile application that would give more autonomy and comfort in the daily life of patients.
