The Problem

Epilepsy affects almost 1% of the population

70.000-80.000 people are estimated to suffer from epilepsy in Switzerland alone

15.000-20.000 Swiss children are estimated to suffer from epilepsy

Epilepsy is often hard to diagnose due to its different sources and the lack of effectiveness from medication

40-50% of all patients undergoing treatment relapse due to their epilepsy being pharmacoresistant

Leaving your epilepsy untreated increases the risk of suffering from SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) which affects 1 in every 1000 people per year
