Scientists in Switzerland are working on a new warning system for people who suffer from epilepsy.
A team of 20 neurologists, computer scientists and biomedical engineers have been working on a new early warning system for epilepsy patients.
The concept, called Neuropro, was headed by Information Technology Scientist Jamil el-Imad.
The patient would wear the cap, which measures brain activity.
The electrodes in the cap are sent via Bluetooth to a smartphone and then on to a server.
If any suspicious brain activity is detected, the patient is warned by a smartphone alert.
“We are looking at the rhythmic patterns, binary rhythmic patterns, algorithmic patterns we developed for that purpose, three algorithms and we look at these patterns and we are able to find pre-markers that suggest that a seizure is imminent”, says el-Imad.
