This mobile based application has been developed by the Child Neurology Division, Department of Pediatrics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. The app is based on AIIMS modification of INDT-EPI tool. The original tool has been published in Indian Pediatrics [INCLEN Diagnostic Tool for Epilepsy (INDT-EPI) for Primary Care Physicians: Development and Validation. 2014 Jul;51(7):539-43]. This tool was modified to include information about epileptic spasms, focal seizures, atonic seizures, symptomatic seizures and the age group up to 18 years . The modified tool was then validated in a study carried out at the aforementioned center and post validation has now been transformed into an app for ease of point of care use. The app has simple straightforward questions with “yes” and “no” answers, which would facilitate diagnosis of epilepsy.
