Developing neurotechnological solutions for epileptic seizure detection and prediction
Develop creative neurotechnology for improving the health and quality of life of individuals with neurological conditions.
While our present focus is epilepsy, our vision extends to assisting with a multitude of neurological disorders.
Epilepsy is a chronic disease characterized by seizures of enhanced and synchronous electrical activity in neuronal networks in the brain. It affects around 1% of the world's population and its causes remain poorly understood. Importantly, around 30% of the patients do not respond to current medications and their seizures cannot be predicted.
At the clinic, automatic seizure detection and forecasting algorithms can reduce the load on clinicians, generate relevant alerts and improve patient care, enabling better treatment with lower resources. In the context of home use, seizure forecasting devices can improve the quality of life of epileptic patients, reducing the anxiety due to the unforeseeable occurrence of seizures and improving patient safety.
Product and Technology
Using novel EEG signal analysis techniques and machine learning algorithms, our solutions can reliably detect seizures as they happen and forecast upcoming seizures ~1 hour in advance.
