    The shirt will be able to detect an epileptic seizure and contact a doctor immediately, allowing for a quick response as well as a way to continuously monitor seizure patterns.
    It will be equipped with sensors able to monitor the wearer's heart rate and other physiological characteristics--including brain activity--in real-time. The data will be transmitted to a smartphone via Bluetooth and then uploaded to the cloud, where a designated physician will access the information and contact emergency services if necessary. The system will also help the users keep track of their symptoms, food intake and medications in order to determine what external influences may be triggering the attacks.
