Improved Ambulatory EEG Design for Children with Epilepsy.
Institution: The National College of Art and Design & The Royal Society of Arts.
On behalf of NCAD, Conall Casey and Kevin Omelia are undertaking a Student Design Competition set out by the Royal Society of Arts as part of their final year (Product Design) project.
Their research so far has uncovered significant problems and poor experiences with the use of Ambulatory EEGs in Ireland (particulary in rural areas), with this in mind they have been redesigning an improved Ambulatory EEG product/system/service.
Who is survey for: Parents/Caregivers of children with epilepsy mainly, but opinions from anyone will relevent information on Ambulatory EEGs are welcome.
Purpose of this survey: To identify possible pain points in using an Ambulatory EEG and to gain the users opinion and perspective. We'd like to hear your thoughts on how you think the experience could be improved for yourself and your child.
Confidentiality: Your answers will be confidential and will not be made available except in the
form of an anonymized report or publication. All computerized data will be stored on a password-protected computer only accessible by the research team.
The survey should take 5 minutes to complete.
Further Information: You can get more information or answers to your questions about the study,
