Who is EpSMon for?
EpSMon is for adults (18+) with epilepsy to help them self-manage their epilepsy and risks in between medical appointments. The app is based on information from the SUDEP and Seizure Safety Checklist tool for clinicians which draws on research based on adults with epilepsy that has been reviewed and updated annually by a UK-wide development group of experts. We hope in future to develop a version of the Checklist for clinicians who support children with epilepsy, which may result in a children's version of EpSMon; however the project is almost entirely dependent on funding from bereaved families (via SUDEP Action), so additional funds would be required to help us do this.
Children that are moving (transitioning) to adult services or leaving home for university might value information in EpSMon as well as our leaflets for young people.
I have epilepsy but am currently seizure free – do I need to use EpSMon?
How do I download EpSMon onto my phone?
EpSMon is available on iOS and Android devices. Just visit the app store for your device and search for EpSMon. Alternatively click the relevant button under the video on www.sudep.org/epsmon.
How much does EpSMon cost?
I don’t live in the UK, can I still download the app?
Unfortunately the app is currently only available in the UK as the project is currently funded almost entirely by bereaved families in the UK. However we hope to bring it to other countries in future with support. Follow SUDEP Action on social media or sign up to the Charity's e-newsletter to be kept up to date of future plans for EpSMon.
