Beagle App Guide
Beagle Health Tracker is an app designed by Seer Medical for monitoring epilepsy, cardiac disease, sleep and other conditions. Record medical events via mobile device or using any connected bluetooth "itag" button. Event times can be reviewed graphically to detect long-term patterns in your illness. You may notice your events are most common during the morning, or on certain days of the week. You can look at your historical event rates to see whether they have been going up or down.
Beagle is still in development. Please be patient with any issues (we love feedback!)
Creating your Seer account
You will receive an email from Seer Medical inviting you to activate your account
You will receive a bluetooth seizure button when you arrive for your connection
Download Beagle. Search for 'Beagle Health Tracker' in the App Store or Google Play Store.
Open the app and log in using your account details (you will need to use a wifi or data connection the first time you login). NOTE you should have received an email from Seer Medical inviting you to activate your account. Please contact us if you have not received an email.
You can report your events via mobile (‘Report Event’), and include additional detail such as event duration or notes (‘Report Event with Details’)
You can download your events into an Excel spreadsheet from our web portal (app.seermedical.com)
You can report the time you take medication using the medication tab (then click 'Report Medication').
You should also see a bluetooth indicator that will allow you to connect your Event Button
The colour of the button indicates your button status. Your button will have a unique, randomly generated name i.e. “Orange Sophia”, “Fabulous Tom” ...
Reporting Events via Button
Once you have connected your button you will be able to click it and log events AS LONG AS you are in range of your phone/tablet
Your phone MUST be running the Beagle app to report events (the app can be running in the background, but do not swipe-close your app, disable bluetooth, or switch off your phone). If you do switch off your phone you will need to re-open Beagle when you turn it back on.
Each time you click a button your phone will record the event time and you will receive a notification confirming that the event has been saved
Buttons have a range of approx 10m. You will not be able to report events using your button if your phone is more than 10m away.
Buttons may beep when they become disconnected (i.e. if you move out of range of your phone). You will also receive a notification on your mobile if your button becomes disconnected for any reason
There is a separate section (tab) for reporting medication times. This is very similar to reporting events.
When you report your first medication you will need to manually enter the drug name and dosage in the notes section. Afterwards this information will be automatically filled in.
Beagle requires iOS version 9.0 or later, and Android version 4.4 (KitKat) or later. You may need to upgrade your mobile software before downloading Beagle.
You may need to wait a little while for the button name to appear when adding a new button
Make sure your button is turned on, and bluetooth is enabled on your phone
If your phone is taking a while to find your button, try clicking the button once. This may help wake up the transmitter in your button
If your phone can’t find your button after more than a couple of minutes you may need to remove (or reset) the button and re-add it
If you turn off your phone don't forget to start Beagle again when you turn it back on
