Eysz is developing an AI-based software solution that analyzes passive eye-movements from compatible eye-tracking systems to assist clinicians in capturing important seizure burden and neurocognitive side effect data, enabling them to create a more personalized care plan. For people with epilepsy, the lack of objectively measured data can result in a prolonged trial-and-error treatment cycle leading to poor quality of life, poor treatment adherence, and excessive costs.
Brett Hundley, Chairman of The Hundley Foundation said, “Epilepsy first touched my life when my older sister and Co-founder of The Hundley Foundation, Paris, was diagnosed with epilepsy. I saw the difficulties of gaining seizure control and have lived with the pain of seeing your loved ones hospitalized by a seizure. I am enthusiastic about an opportunity to invest in a company that is developing a solution with the potential to help people with epilepsy potentially gain seizure control faster.”
“We are extremely grateful for this investment from the Hundley Foundation and the vote of confidence it represents. We launched this crowdfunding to offer the epilepsy community an opportunity to own part of a solution for a problem that has negatively affected outcomes for years,” stated Rachel Kuperman, MD, Founder & CEO of Eysz. “None of us would imagine asking people with diabetes how they are feeling instead of relying on blood glucose monitoring and hemoglobin A1C, yet that is how neurologists have had to collect data about how epilepsy treatment is progressing. The response we’ve seen from the epilepsy community shows the need for a better, more reliable way to collect data.”
Danielle Marano, CEO of The Hundley Foundation said, “As a person with epilepsy, I know firsthand the challenges of getting to seizure control. Not only I am excited at the potential that the Eysz solution can bring to millions of people, I am also excited in how Eysz is using equity crowdfunding to bring the epilepsy community together and have ownership in Eysz. This community building initiative is in line with the mission of The Hundley Foundation, and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Epilepsy, which is characterized by recurrent seizures, is one of the most common and expensive neurological disorders. According to the World Health Organization, epilepsy is the most common serious brain disorder worldwide with no age, racial, social class, national or geographic boundaries. Globally, more than 70 million people have epilepsy. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) estimates that 3.4 million people in the United States are affected by epilepsy.
Eysz is a startup developing a digital health platform to enable personalized medicine for neurological disorders starting with epilepsy, one of the most common and expensive neurological disorders. The goal of epilepsy treatment is to stop seizures with minimal side effects as quickly as possible. However, doctors do not have the reliable data they need to accurately measure treatment outcomes. Eysz’s unique AI-based software analyzes passive eye-movements from compatible eye-tracking systems to assist clinicians in understanding their patient’s seizure burden and neurocognitive side effects enabling them to create a more personalized care plan, potentially resulting in better quality of life, improved treatment adherence, and lower costs.

Investing in Regulation CF offerings involves a high degree of risk. Securities sold through Regulation CF Offerings are typically not publicly traded and, therefore, are less liquid. Additionally, investors will receive restricted stock that is subject to holding period requirements. Companies seeking capital through Regulation CF Offerings tend to be in earlier stages of development and have not yet been fully tested in the public marketplace. Investing in Regulation CF Offerings requires a tolerance for high risk, low liquidity, and a long-term commitment. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Such investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and have no bank guarantee.
