Purpose and goal
The purpose and objective of the project has been twofold: (1) Testing the response of Pilloxa in patients with epilepsy (2) Verify whether Pilloxa can be sold to pharmaceutical companies through a B2B model. Fulfilment: Through the project we have been able to get feedback on how people with epilepsy experience using Pilloxa and to verify that Pilloxa can be sold to pharmaceutical companies.
Expected results and effects
Some patients appreciated Pilloxa very much, some patients with poorer cognitive ability did not appreciate Pilloxa to the same extent. The healthcare staff still see Pilloxa as a tool that would really be needed for this patient population. In parallel, we were able to verify that the B2B business model could be scaled up with pharmaceutical companies.
Planned approach and implementation
All preliminary work for the study was carried out in accordance with. plan. The inclusion of patients in AP2 was slower than expected, as fewer people with sufficient cognition could be identified by the clinic. In the evaluation of AP3, it was clear that Pilloxa works well for patients with normal cognition but worse for patients with lower cognition than average.
