About Epihunter

"Daddy, you work in digital, can you make a light that turns on when my brain switches off?"

This question from a son to his father led to the foundation of Epihunter in 2017, and the launch of the first Epihunter solution in 2018 that detects, logs and signals silent absence seizures.




App+-+seizure+end+-+NL(2)Our ambition is to improve daily life of people with epilepsy worldwide

We believe current digital technologies are able to massively improve daily life of people with epilepsy (=1% of the world's population). Epihunter creates digital connected solutions to make epilepsy matter less at moments that matter most.



_DSC6832(3)First milestone (2018): detect, log and signal absence seizures

In 2018 we successfully launched our first product. Anyone who suffers silent, difficult to notice absence seizures can now detect, log and signal these seizures through the combination of an EEG headset and smartphone application which can easily be ordered online.
