I have a 8 year old son with Cereberal Palsey and Epilepsy who requires 24 hours care and finding a really good camera system to montor my son is incredable hard on a tight budget so here is my use for the Pi
I intend to use this as a dedicated computer for the the camera. The computer is linked to a PVR to record any epileptic episodes (head shot only) . This can then be show to his doctors as his episodes are primarily at night times as well having different types of fit from absent to full blown tonic clonic.
Not only that its also portable so he will be able to sleep over at his grandparents now as well go on holidays.
I have 2 mins to apply his medication or an episode can last for up to 45 mins and involve a trip to the hospital. The Pi has given me and my wife the ability to not only stop thease faster but be able to record for the doctors so they can see them as there treating him
Thank you for this gift and i intend to pass this on to all the disabled familys i know as well as support forums. I hope you can understand the magnitude of what this will do to change parents life
