The SmartWatch is one of two recently-developed technologies that could make life easier for people prone to seizures
The Johns Hopkins software is designed to work with systems like this, in which implanted electrodes deliver electrical pulses to a targeted location of the brain
Seizures can be very scary experiences for people who suffer from them, especially since they may sometimes result in the need for medical attention. Unfortunately, they often come on so fast that the people getting them aren’t able to get out a call for help beforehand – they simply have to ride out the seizure on their own, and hope for the best. Now, however, two new technologies may be able to help. One is a watch that alerts caregivers when it detects movements associated with seizures, while the other is a system that could stop seizures before they start, by sending electrical impulses to the brain.
