How Emerging Technology Can Help Improve Seizure Detection.

Seizure Detection

An upcoming webinar hosted by Mohawk College IDEAWORKS will explore the role that emerging tech plays in developing automated medical alert systems.

While fitness trackers and smart watches are become more and more popular, it is in healthcare where wearable technology can have the biggest impact.

On December 17, Mini Thomas, Professor of Engineering Technology at Mohawk College, will be sharing the results from her research project that explored how a wearable body sensor network could be used to develop an efficient and cost-effective remote seizure detection and prediction system.

The project was supported by the IDEAWORKS Catalyst Fund, which provides funding to support new applied research and innovative scholarship in teaching and learning at Mohawk College.

The free webinar will be held on Thursday, December 17, 2020, from 2 p.m.- 3 p.m. and is open to Mohawk College employees, students and the public.
