I am looking for an Android application that uses the accelerometer sensor in the mobile phone, perhaps with a few software tags attached to the body and communicating with the phone, for detecting epileptic seizures.
The software would work as follows: the phone stays in a designated cushioned pocket and if the person falls the accelerometer sensor will have detected that the phone in the pocket has fallen onto the floor without breaking, and initiate a simultaneous phone call and SMS to a designated person on the ICE list.
If the phone is taken out of the pocket a software tag on the pocket can somehow compute the distance between the pocket and the phone, and software on the phone detects whether some "non-background" app is in use and has not been idle. The phone and the pocket tag communicate via Bluetooth. So, if the person has a seizure while the phone id's out the person falls and the phone falls with the pocket even when the phone is out the the same alarm mechanism triggers. The combined communication triggers the phone call plus SMS.
If the person with risk of epileptic seizure decides to do things like skiing or doing pushups then this mechanism can be calibrated so that the system can detect the difference between just a normal body reconfiguration/movement/action and a fall triggered by an epileptic seizure.
