2020-053: EKG-based Wearable Alert System for Onset of Epileptic Seizures

  • Therapeutic Area: Cardiovascular; Neurology/Pain/Sleep Disorders
  • Technology Platform: Digital Medicine/AI/Software
  • Development Stage: Clinical


Based on their discovery of the elevation in electrocardiographic T-wave heterogeneity (TWH) in sufficient time prior to the onset of epileptic seizures, the investigators propose its use in a wearable alert system for epilepsy patients to take precautionary measures.




  • Provides alert in sufficient time for patient to take precautionary actions
  • Save, easy to use wearable device is proposed

Potential Applications

  • Patients with epilepsy
