Smartwatch to predict seizures.

Smartwatch to predict seizures.

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Sun Dec 07, 2014 8:57 pm

This smartwatch has been designed primarily for people who suffer with epileptic fits.

The Embrace is the first medical-quality smartwatch that helps predict epileptic seizures, and measure stress, activity and sleep. Designed to improve the lives of people with epilepsy, the sleek-looking device can also be worn purely as a stylish watch.

Although the algorithm has currently only been validated for convulsive seizure detection, research is being conducted into the detection of nonconvulsive seizures.

In the USA at the moment and due for release in May 2015. It will be interesting to see whether we get this in the UK....
