Are wearable devices for monitoring and predicting seizures around the corner?

Devices to be unveiled at the American Epilepsy Society's 69th Annual Meeting in Philadelphia offer hope for continuous patient monitoring of seizure activity in the everyday home environment and advance warning of an impending attack. The devices are the EEG Patch, Brain Sentinel GTC Seizure Detection and Warning System, and two commercially available wrist-worn devices that could have applications for epilepsy as well. All of them are worn outside the body, making them a more convenient and cheaper alternative to video EEG. Release
