Epilepsy Alliance America invests in Eysz to Advance its AI-based Epilepsy Management Platform
Eysz is developing an AI-based software solution that analyzes passive eye-movements from compatible eye-tracking systems to assist clinicians in understanding their patient’s seizure burden and neurocognitive side effects, enabling them to create a more personalized care plan. Current standard of care relies on patient-report data for epilepsy treatment outcomes which is < 50% accurate and does not give doctors the reliable data they need to accurately measure treatment outcomes. For people with epilepsy, this cycle results in a prolonged trial-and-error treatment cycle leading to poor quality of life, poor treatment adherence, and excessive costs.
Rachel Kuperman, MD, Founder & CEO of Eysz, stated, “We are humbled by the Epilepsy Alliance America for their investment, which demonstrates a vote of confidence in our team to bring forward a solution with the potential to improve outcomes for people with epilepsy. We chose to raise this capital via Reg CF because we saw it as an opportunity to bring all stakeholders in the epilepsy community together on a shared issue that impacts outcomes for everyone.”
Jeff Sinsebox, President of Epilepsy Alliance America stated, “This investment in Eysz, which supports the development of a patient-centric management system that can potentially help improve outcomes, is in line with our mission to promote the independence and quality of life for people with epilepsy and their families. The Alliance was founded by the uniting of multiple leading grassroots epilepsy organizations with a shared mission to provide direct support to people with epilepsy and the people who care for them. Eysz’s equity crowdfunding campaign is an opportunity for the community to come together in the same spirit.”
Epilepsy, which is characterized by recurrent seizures, is one of the most common and expensive neurological disorders. According to the World Health Organization, epilepsy is the most common serious brain disorder worldwide with no age, racial, social class, national or geographic boundaries. Globally, more than 70 million people have epilepsy. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) estimates that 3.4 million people in the United States are affected by epilepsy.
Eysz is a startup developing a digital health platform to enable personalized medicine for neurological disorders starting with epilepsy, one of the most common and expensive neurological disorders. The goal of epilepsy treatment is to stop seizures with minimal side effects as quickly as possible. However, doctors do not have the reliable data they need to accurately measure treatment outcomes. Eysz’s unique AI-based software analyzes passive eye-movements from compatible eye-tracking systems to assist clinicians in understanding their patient’s seizure burden and neurocognitive side effects enabling them to create a more personalized care plan, potentially resulting in better quality of life, improved treatment adherence, and lower costs.
