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.
People with epilepsy in the world.
Will have a seizure in their life.
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.Prof. Dr. Wim Van Paesschen, epileptologist UZ Leuven
We envision to empower clinical decisions to enable faster treatment adjustments, a better understanding of one’s epilepsy and improved care so people and families affected by epilepsy can lead the lives they want.
EpiCare@Home is an end-to-end service to support neurologists and generate data and epilepsy insights outside the hospital in a real world environment. With EpiCare@Home, several seizure types can be detected.
Our EpiCare@Home service comes with:
To support patients at home and provide a digital seizure diary tool.
To acquire multiple physiologic and behavioral signals simultaneously and continuously for up to 4 weeks.
To collect, preprocess, and visualize the data for each patient follow-up. This includes two-channel behind-the-ear EEG and accelerometer, together with vital signs: heart rate, respiratory rate, and activity index data.
Potential epileptic events are automatically flagged by algorithms, and reviewed by a trained annotator. All events are displayed in the dashboard to assist with clinical decisions.

“Remote monitoring supported the neurologists to determine whether Oliver’s medication was effective.Oliver was able to wear the EpiCare@Home solution comfortable at home, during the night, during soccer practice etc.”

” Standard EEG-monitoring at hospital is difficult for Arto. Arto can become stressed and anxious by the hospital setup and busy environment. Remote monitoring at home meant a day and night difference for us and for Arto”
