Epilepsy is common neurological disorder, which normally affects 1 in every 103 persons. Epilepsy is caused by recurring disruption in the brain’s activity that is generally short-lived. Epilepsy is most commonly diagnosed in childhood and in people over 60 years of age; however, it can affect anyone. The symptoms of epilepsy include seizure depends on the part of the brain that is affected and the extent of disruption. The frequency of seizure attacks increase due to by factors such as stress, poor sleep, anxiety, excessive alcohol consumption, fever, or flashing/flickering lights.

Increasing incidence of epilepsy is likely to fuel the demand for continuous epilepsy monitoring devices. These devices employ the electroencephalography technique to diagnose brain abnormalities. These devices can detect a seizure attack and alert or notify the person who can respond. Devices can be used by child as well as adult patients. Some devices also store data about the seizure, which can be shared with physicians. These devices do not prevent, treat, or diagnose seizures or epilepsy. The two types of epilepsy monitoring devices available in the market are conventional ECG devices and wearable ECG devices.
