The Achilles heel of epilepsy? A lack of long-term, objective seizure information.

The current standard of seizure logging at home is the subjective and inaccurate seizure diary. The in-hospital video-EEG remains the gold standard for measuring and diagnosing seizures, yet its lack of portability largely prevents patients from wearing the setup in their daily life, especially for longer periods of time. EpiCare@Home bridges the gap between video-EEG and seizure diaries by providing a user-friendly, unobtrusive, yet accurate multimodal wearable home monitoring solution for epileptic seizure detection.

Strikingly, the epilepsy journey to the right treatment and acceptable quality of life is long and cumbersome because counting and characterizing seizures in daily life is a bottleneck. Today, physicians have to do guesswork and people with epilepsy have the burden of tracking their seizures themselves.

Epilepsy in numbers

70 Million

People with epilepsy in the world.

1/26

Will have a seizure in their life.

More than 30%

Of patients has refractory, medication-resistant epilepsy.

What is missing from the Neurologist arsenal for long-term seizure monitoring, is a user-friendly and accurate wearable which can be used at home.

Our mission? Give you the tools to provide best-in-class care for your patients.

EpiCare@Home pushes the boundaries of unobtrusive EEG-based home monitoring to support neurologists and patients. Our wearable technology, accompanied by medical software analyzes low montage EEG data together with other physiologic and behavioral data.

The sample-level and pre-annotated data is visualized in a dashboard that assists neurologists with an objective measure of the patient’s seizure burden. As such, EpiCare@Home helps to make more informed clinical decisions and deliver best-in-class care for people with epilepsy.


More data, more comfort, an optimised care pathway. All wrapped in an end-to-end service.

As a neurologist, you prescribe EpiCare@Home and choose how long the patient will be monitored: days, weeks, months; it’s all possible. We then offer an end-to-end service: patients use our technology supported by a mobile application and EpiCare@Home nurse. Meanwhile, you can review diary and pre-labeled events marked by our data analytics pipeline and a trained annotator.

How it all comes together.

Our EpiCare@Home service comes with:

Assistant app

To support your patient at home and provide a digital seizure diary tool.

Wearables

To acquire multiple physiologic and behavioral signals simultaneously.

Dashboard

To collect, preprocess, and visualize the data for each patient follow-up. This includes two-channel behind-the-ear EEG and accelerometer (ACC), together with vital signs: heart rate (HR), respiratory rate (RR), and activity index data.

Potential epileptic events are automatically flagged by algorithms, and reviewed by a trained human annotator.  All events are presented to you for final validation and to assist with clinical decisions.
