What if you could predict an oncoming seizure in time for you stop it? Or even prevent it?
That day may be coming sooner than you think, thanks to these seven new technologies.
You’ll learn what they are, how they work and how far along they are.
There’s a lot of new and exciting research going on — all over the world — about predicting and preventing seizures.
The latest research combines scientists who excel in engineering, math,physics and technology in a dedicated collaborative effort.
And even though most the actual technology isn’t here yet, the future holds promise for us all.
Deep Brain Stimulation
One seizure-interrupting device, called aresponsive neurostimulator system, is for patients with temporal lobe epilepsy, bi-temporal epilepsy, and neocortical epilepsy.
This therapy uses a pacemaker-like device, implanted in the brain to deliver a small amount of electricity when it detects the onset of a seizure.
