Dialog is a cross-media concept which aims to provide epilepsy patients with a deeper understanding of their condition and gain more control over their lives.

Designed by Seattle-based agency Artefact, each patient is able to track data related to their condition through a discreet module that can be worn on the body or attached to a wristband. The patch notes significant physiological changes and transforms the data into a detailed report, offering insight to both patient and caregiver through a mobile application.

Using this information, it's hoped patients will be able to better collaborate with their physicians, with a view to understanding certain triggers for their seizures. Users are also reminded to take their medication.

Another feature provides first responders with instructions in case of a sustained seizure. Settings dictated by the user indicate to what extent they want others to get involved, hopefully providing a stronger sense of control over their situation.

Other products built on the principles of quantified self include Google Lens, a concept with diabetes patients in mind that's able to measure sugar levels once a second, and Kernel of Life, designed to provide a cloud based alternative to live treatment in hard-to-reach areas. Tinké, meanwhile, caters more generally to our fitness and well-being.
