Wearable devices for non-invasive, ambulatory seizure monitoring and prediction

Description 
The development of reliable, accurate, non-invasive methodologies for continuous, long-term seizure monitoring is a critical part of the precision medicine approach in epilepsy management. While the gold standard for diagnosing and detecting seizures remains inpatient simultaneous EEG and video recording, it is costly and impractical for extended use outside the hospital setting. Conventional outpatient seizure monitoring relies on self-completing seizure diary which is inexpensive but highly inaccurate. There is a need for novel technologies that combine low cost, non-invasiveness with reliability for extended seizure monitoring. This project aims to develop an integrated wearable sensor system for the clinical management of seizures in patients with epilepsy. The device will be tested in patients admitted for inpatient video-EEG monitoring.
