Sarah’s PhD thesis is titled “An IoT Approach to Remote Personalised Monitoring and Management of Epilepsy”. In collaboration with a specialist NHS trust, this project aims to develop a personalised approach to caring for long term condition such as epilepsy. In particular, this project will investigate the possible benefits of emerging Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm’s smart devices for delivering healthcare. There are a number of devices for epilepsy monitoring already in use, such as: EEG, ECG, EMG muscle tone, Movement detector and Pulse Oximeter, however, further work needs to be done to identify how new smart devices together with existing devices can be utilised in order to deliver more personalised approach to monitoring and caring of patients.
