Learn how epihunter can support a faster and more efficient follow-up
of your patients with (suspected) absence seizures.
|"We found the neurologist reports from epihunter to be very helpful during conversations with our consultant. The graphical overviews made it easier for us to compare the data month to month and track changes in seizure frequency. This was of particular interest as our son's medication dose had been increased and - through epihunter - we observed a decrease in absence seizures.”
Jon & Laura, parents of Rafe (5), UK
Our secure and easy-to-use epihunter Pro web portal provides access to reports from your patients. These are in downloadable PDF format en includes three sections:
When a seizure is detected or logged by hand, epihunter automatically records a video. The video will start 30 seconds prior to the detected onset or logging, as well as up to 30 seconds after the seizure. This requires only the smartphone's camera and EEG headset, no other equipment is needed.
We believe that this simple yet powerful feature holds great triage and diagnosis opportunities by creating many more qualitative seizure videos.
|"Video is a cornerstone in diagnosis and therapy optimisation. And pre-ictal [the moments prior to a seizure] video is of utmost interest for the treating physician.”
Dr Alexander Rotenberg,
Neurologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School
The wearable EEG headset uses dry gold-plated copper electrodes that are in direct contact with the skin on the forehead. The measurement electrodes are located at Fp1 and F7. The EEG signal is digitized and forwarded to the smartphone over Bluetooth. On the phone, the AI program continuously analyzes the incoming data.
The detections, videos, user annotations and raw EEG data are all securely stored in the cloud. Users and their caregivers can use the epihunter Companion app to access and share this information manually with their doctor or others. With an epihunter Pro license, the data and videos automatically become available to the physician with a single patient consent.
Epihunter has been thoroughly validated on historical data to generate the required evidence for CE approval. To further strengthen the evidence, we are currently running a multi-center prospective validation study, funded by a New Therapy Grant of the Epilepsy Foundation (US). The study runs in Belgium, the US, Denmark and Georgia.
In this validation study, we use epihunter during a clinical video EEG recording. We then compare epileptic absence seizures as detected by epihunter with the absence seizures annotated by experts. At the Epilepsy Foundation's Pipeline Conference in August 2020, we presented the interim results of this study. We found that epihunter was able to pick up 82% of the absence seizures indicated by the experts, with only 1 false positive in 62 detections (98% positive predictive value).
