Rise above the fear and the uncertainty
Manage your epilepsy better
Care when it is needed most
We are a young, dynamic and socially responsible organization with a passion for technological innovations, using latest research and proven design principles to create meaningful products and solutions that brings a positive change in people's lives.
With TJay, we took our first step in unravelling the mysteries of the brain. As an organization, TerraBlue XT will persist in its journey of a thousand miles, attempting to make the quality of lives of people with chronic disorders better, safer and happier. Set sail, ahoy!
What is Epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder which is characterized by sudden recurrent episodes of seizures – sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, or convulsions.
The seizures are caused by bursts of abnormal electrical activity in the brain, an imbalance of nerve signaling chemicals (neurotransmitters), or by a combination of these factors. Head injuries, brain tumors, lead poisoning, certain genetic diseases and some infectious diseases may lead to epilepsy. For a large number of people, the underlying cause of epilepsy remains unknown.
What is the difference between a seizure and epilepsy?
A seizure refers to a single episode of abnormal movement or behavior due to unusual electrical activity in the brain. A person who have had a single episode of seizure may not have epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a group of related disorders characterized by a tendency of a person to have recurrent seizures.
What is TJay?
TJay is a wearable device that helps in the management of epilepsy. TJay comes with its own data gateway and intelligent system called PokeTee. With TJay, you will get alerts about epilepsy and understand your seizures better. Please see TJay for PWE for details.
How will I see the data that TJay collects?
You can see the data collected by TJay through the TJay app on any web or internet-enabled device, including any smart device. You can also view your data offline by hooking up Poketee to your laptop.
How does TJay detect seizures?
The sensors placed on the TJay glove continuously keep monitoring your health. During a seizure there are well known changes that occur in the autonomic nervous system. Our sensors detect even subtle changes in the autonomic nervous system, including both sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. The analysis of the sensor data tells us whether you are fine or whether there’s a likelihood of you becoming unwell in the ensuing time.
If from the sensor data we figure you are about to become unwell, we will send an alert to you and a nominated caregiver, so that if possible you can take an emergency medicine to abort the seizure.
We will also record the entire seizure event if it plays out so that you and your doctor both understand what happens inside your body as you go through a seizure episode. This data may help your doctor to validate his understanding of your seizure and also provide him with other insights to personalize your care.
Does TJay work for all types of seizures?
Currently, TJay works best for generalized tonic clonic (GTCS), complex partial and partial seizures. We are still working on extending the capabilities of our sensors and algorithms, and we feel TJay may help in the management of several other types of seizures. Please stay tuned to our website for details on our research.
How accurate is TJay?
Our preliminary tests show that TJay is quite accurate in detecting a seizure.
However, we need to wait some more time before declaring a percentage of success. We are still in the process of testing TJay for its ability to predict and detect a seizure with real patients and by the end of the next round of test in May 2016, we should be able to share a proper percentage of accuracy. Stay tuned to this website for the results of the test.
Is TJay based on science?
Yes, TJay is based only on science.
There are several studies that have shown the relationship between seizures and the autonomic nervous system. For example, the relationship between seizures and changes in heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV) is well known.
TJay is built on the premise that during a seizure the autonomic nervous system, including the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system show marked changes. The intrinsic study of these changes help us to detect or predict a seizure.
What standards does TJay comply to?
We follow all required industry standards for our hardware and software. We have put all the necessary systems in place to get our hardware CE and FDA approved.
Since we are still in the development stage, we are not yet ready to file for regulatory approvals. Stay tuned to our website for updates on regulations.
Will TJay harm me in any way?
No, we have designed TJay in a way that it is not harmful. We are still working on the final safety specifications and we hope have them finalized by the end of April, 2016. Stay tuned to this website for updates on the safety features.
When will you release TJay in the market?
If all goes well, we hope to release TJay by December of 2016.
If you have pre-ordered a TJay, you may be one of the first guys to receive a TJay. We are building only 5000 pieces in the first lot, so it’s a good idea to pre-order one today.
In what state of development are you now?
We are now working on creating a commercial version of TJay. Our hardware and software are both complex and therefore, we need enough time to make sure we have the right product for you.
But to give you a high level idea, we will release the next version of our MVP on 30th April, 2016, do a beta release by the end of August, 2016 and finally do a commercial release by the end of 2016.
Can I be a part of your clinical trials?
Yes, you can if you meet our criteria. We have started enrolling patients for clinical trials and you can write to us as email@example.com for details.
Can I participate in your beta testing?
Yes, you can, if you fulfil the requirements of the beta test. Please send us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the details when we start enrolling for the test.
Please note we still have a long way to go for our beta release, and you may not hear from us till June of 2016. Hope you will bear with us till then.
How much does TJay cost?
Since we are still finetuning the design of TJay and experimenting with different components, we still have not arrived at a definitive price for TJay.
We would like to see TJay being used by a larger section of the society, and keeping this in mind we hope to soon come up with an acceptable price. Stay tuned for an update on price.
