Investigators Workshop: Wearable Devices: Beyond Seizure Detection

Convention Center, Rooms 343-344
2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Behavioral Health Providers

This workshop will address the application of available wearable devices to novel uses beyond simple seizure detection and alerting and discuss ongoing research to leverage available technology to better understand seizure risk,aid in epilepsy diagnosis and dynamically assess disease comorbidities.

Learning Objectives

Following participation in this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain and identify intersections between wearable device technology and translational and clinical science in epilepsy
  • Discuss the application of wearable technology to improve epilepsy diagnosis, enable seizure forecasting and remote patient monitoring
  • Assess approaches and barriers to validating these novel applications
