We have already seen a watch designed to help detect epileptic seizures, and now researchers at the University of Bonn in Germany are developing a mobile sensor for seizures, with hundreds of thousands of euros in backing from the German government. The research will see the development of EPItect, an in-ear sensor that can detect an impending seizure and send a warning alert to the patient and their contacts. The EPItect mobile sensor will rely on the process of electroencephalography, a technology often used in hospitals when monitoring for seizures, but this will be the first time it has been miniaturized…
