OBJECTIVE Nocturnal home monitoring of epileptic children is often not feasible due to the cumbersome manner of seizure detection with the standard method of video electroencephalography monitoring. The goal of this paper is to propose a method for hypermotor seizure detection based on accelerometers that are attached to the extremities. METHODS Supervised methods that are commonly used in literature need annotation of data and hence require expert (neurologist) interaction resulting in a… CONTINUE READING
