Wearable Device Clears a First ‘Milestone’ in Seizure Detection (Medscape; requires subscription):
A wrist-worn device that uses machine learning accurately detects different seizure types in findings that have the potential to revolutionize the management of patients with epilepsy.
“We have set a first benchmark for automatic detection of a variety of epileptic seizures using wearable sensors and deep-learning algorithms. In other words, we have shown for the first time that it’s possible to do this,” study investigator Jianbin Tang, MA, Data Science Project Lead, IBM Research Australia, Victoria, told Medscape Medical News.
