Topic: Seizure detector (Read 100 times) previous topic - next topic


So long story short, my partner has idiopathic epilepsy and has tonic-clonic seizures every few months. Luckily I have been around her when its happened most times so I've been there to help, but I'm afraid my luck might run out one of these days. I want to make a wearable device that can detect symptoms of someone having a seizure and alert me when I'm at work or out of the house. I have a few ESP32's and ESP8226 NodeMCU microcontrollers which I plan to use along with the Arduino IDE. I also have an ADXL345 accelerometer and an LSM303DLHC accelerometer/ magnetometer.

My thinking is making a pedometer-like device that can count steps based on the variations in readings from the accelerometer but can also identify a seizure if say the frequency in movements exceeds a limit.

I'm lost on how to do this. Can anyone please help me with this? Or advice on different hardware, ideas, algorithms, libraries, etc?

That would be one place to start (and the links therein) given your description of your chosen solution.
