Detection and Prediction of Seizures using a Wrist-based Wearable Platform

  title={Detection and Prediction of Seizures using a Wrist-based Wearable Platform},
  author={G. Raam},
Seizure is a neurological disorder that occurs due to sudden electrical activity in the brain. A number of physiological signals can be used to detect seizure. This paper describes a wrist-based platform that uses a combination of physiological signals and other parameters such as irregular, uncoordinated motion for the detection of seizure. The proposed device is capable of constant evolution by updating of its algorithms, leading to a device capable of predicting seizures before their actual… Expand

An IoT Platform for Epilepsy Monitoring and Supervising
This research makes an in-depth analysis of the main factors that an epileptic detection and monitoring tool should accomplish and introduces the architecture for a specific epilepsy detection and Monitoring platform, fulfilling these factors. Expand
SeizeIT: SEIZURE victims are no longer leashed
An application of biomedical wireless sensor networks, which attempts to monitor patients in a completely non-invasive and non-intrusive manner, which is designed to address some issues with seizure detection systems in the market. Expand
Seizure forecasting and cyclic control of seizures
There are many possible applications of a seizure‐forecasting device, including improving quality of life for people with epilepsy, guiding treatment plans and medication titration, optimizing presurgical monitoring, and focusing scientific research. Expand


Detection of seizure-like movements using a wrist accelerometer
To determine if a wrist-worn motion detector could detect tonic-clonic seizures, individuals admitted for continuous video/EEG monitoring wore a wristwatch-size device that was programmed to detect rhythmic movements such as those that occur during Tonic-Clonic seizures. Expand
Non-EEG seizure-detection systems and potential SUDEP prevention: State of the art
An overview of body signals that can be measured, along with corresponding methods, state-of-art research, and commercially available systems, as well as to stress the importance of a good detection system are provided. Expand
Prospective Study of the Emfit Movement Monitor
The Emfit movement monitor performed very well in comparison to previously tested devices, and the alarm was activated with 11 of the 13 generalized tonic-clonic seizures that occurred in sleeping children. Expand
Prospective Study of 2 Bed Alarms for Detection of Nocturnal Seizures
The ability of the bed alarms to detect motor seizures in general and specific seizure types was tested and the Medpage seizure alarms do not appear to adequately detect nocturnal seizures. Expand
Assessment of a quasi-piezoelectric mattress monitor as a detection system for generalized convulsions
The data suggest that the Emfit® detection device has a high predictive value for generalized convulsions, offers caregivers a reliable and early warning to assist the patient during convulsion, and may be a novel way to prevent SUDEP. Expand
Heart Rate Changes and ECG Abnormalities During Epileptic Seizures: Prevalence and Definition of an Objective Clinical Sign
To determine the prevalence of heart rate changes and ECG abnormalities during epileptic seizures and to determine the timing ofheart rate changes compared to the first electrographic and clinical signs, a large number of patients with epilepsy are diagnosed with epilepsy. Expand
Wrist-located pulse detection using IR signals, activity and nonlinear artifact cancellation
Qualitative and quantitative performance evaluation of the performances on real signals clearly show that the proposed system gives an accurate estimation of the heart rate, even under intense physical activity. Expand
Ictal heart rate increase precedes EEG discharge in drug-resistant mesial temporal lobe seizures
Analysis of the role of ictal HR changes in localizing both mesial and lateral temporal lobe epilepsy in a group of 68 patients suggests that the HR changes may be coupled to the functional impairment of neural circuits involved in sympathetic cardiovascular regulation, in the mesial temporal lobe structures. Expand
Cardiac arrhythmias in focal epilepsy: a prospective long-term study
Clinical characteristics of patients with peri-ictal cardiac abnormalities are closely similar to those at greatest risk of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy, which would have important implications for the investigation of similar patients and affect present cardiac-pacing policies. Expand
Electrocardiographic changes during electrographic seizures.
It is concluded that ictal tachycardia is the rule during electrographic seizures, and that high-risk cardiac arrhythmias are uncommon. Expand
