For my final project, I would like to create app that help people with epilepsy. With about 65 million people who suffer from epilepsy. The app would help with navigating a person throughout their day. The app would include police alerts because flashing lights trigger seizures. A list of food conflicts that goes along with the user’s required pharmaceutical prescription. They will be able to set up medicine alerts so they won’t be able to forget to take their medicine while they are out. A mapping locator will provide the closest neurological doctor when the user’s primary doctor isn’t around. A forum will also be available to interact with other people about Epilepsy. Apart of the app’s design will be an alert that sends out loud beeping noise at high pitches if a person seizes and falls to the ground. The app will have its own separate interface but all include a link to the forum via Tapatalk, an app for desktop-based forums, which will connect to the epilepsy forum. The app will be designed in large icons for easy access to each function. The emergency alerts will pop us with in a two-mile radius wherever the user is. For example, if the user were at 10th and Walnut, the alert would read “Ambulance going east on Chestnut. Please turn off at the next block!”
I did choose my classroom because it would give me what an average student did in the classroom and what it would look like in an enclosed public space. I imagined what it would be like in a situation if someone in class had a seizure and what the app could help with possibly.
