Sometimes when a patient with epilepsy has a seizure they may not even recognize it for any number of reasons. A device no bigger than a piece of gum which is being developed could help in that effort going forward.

Mark Lehmkuhle, PhD, from the University of Utah discussed the work being put into development of the device, what it could mean if approved, and what challenges remain to be overcome in the process during the annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society's annual meeting in Philadelphia.
