Seizure prediction device could give hour’s notice

A wearable device has been developed that can predict a seizure an hour before onset with potentially 97% accuracy.
The device called Epiness has been developed by Israeli researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The device uses machine learning algorithms and EEG based monitoring of the brain activity.
The product which is not available to buy yet is due to undergo clinical trials later this year.
In development and testing large EEG datasets were used, and the prediction performance reached 97% accuracy.
For people with epilepsy whose seizures are not controlled an effective prediction device could help reduce injuries and increase independence.
