A novel way to predict epileptic seizures

Researchers at the University of Sydney say they have developed wearable technology that can predict when seizures will strike without the need for invasive implants.

“We are on track to develop an affordable, portable and non-surgical device that will give reliable prediction of seizures for people living with treatment-resistant epilepsy,” says Dr Omid Kavehei from the faculty of engineering and IT.

In a paper published this month, Dr Kavehei and his team have proposed a generalised, patient-specific seizure-prediction method that can alert patients
