Technology: Continuous epilepsy monitoring, detection and notification app

CEO: Debasish “Ron” Nag


BioLert is a software as a service (SaaS) product that monitors epileptic patients, detects epilepsy episodes and notifies caregivers or family members when an event occurs. Via the user’s personal smart watch or smartphone, the product records all tracked data (including video and audio, if available). BioLert’s actionable seizure alert system monitors and detects vital information, automatically notifying caregivers when neurological events occur so that help, if needed, can arrive. What’s more, the BioLert system automatically saves all tracked vital signs and event data in the cloud. Cloud-based data gives healthcare providers and medical research teams easy, permission-based access to patient information, with the goal of developing better treatments for the individual as well as the community at large.
