Forecasting seizures to help improve control and treatment of epilepsy

By June 12, 2020Press

A study at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), King’s College London is evaluating the use of a small device placed under the skin to predict the timing and pattern of epileptic seizures as a way to help patients feel more in control of their condition.

In this video the study lead, Professor Mark Richardson, and study investigator, Pedro Viana, explain the potential of this project, and research participant, Nicola Twallin, shows the device in use and talks about the importance of having more information on when and how often her seizures occur.

The video has been launched to mark National Epilepsy Awareness Week, 18 -24 May 2020.
