Creating Solutions for People with Epilepsy

  1. The usability & tolerability of the product
  2. Whether participants will show self-reported improvements in their quality of life, medication adherence, and seizure tracking
  3. Whether care partners of individuals with epilepsy have a reduced care burden, and reduced anxiety

The team aims to recruit 50 patients and they are almost at their goal! If you know someone over the age of 18 who suffers from a minimum of four seizures per month, is on medication for epilepsy, and is English speaking, they may qualify.

Interested patients can contact Novela via their website or email [email protected] and they will be referred to the study partner Epilepsy Ottawa. Participants commit to a 90-day trial with a survey every 30 days. They may also qualify to keep the equipment and services free for one year after the trial ends.

Advice for Entrepreneurs
“Knowing your target market very well, understanding your customer to bring something that helps them is important for entrepreneurs to keep in mind,” said Sabetian. “We launched early so we can learn from our users or customers to mature our product to their needs.”

“Listening to feedback is important for the development cycle,” said Kidd. “The product needs to be user-friendly to be impactful.”

Novela – A Global Team
One of the unique features of the company is that, even before COVID-19, the employees work from home, around the world, blending cultures and insights. “We are a team with a friendly culture operating in four time zones,” said Sabetian. “Our employees are working by their hearts; our employees care about our vision and improving human life. We’re growing and becoming one family unified under our focused vision.”
