Smartwatches are the bee’s knees these days.
Hundreds of thousands of people own them, from Apple Watch to Android ones. But now, scientists have created a first-of-its-kind watch-like bracelet that will save lives.
The Nightwatch, revealed in the Neurology journal, reportedly can detect 85 percent of evening epilepsy seizures. No high-tech bracelet has reported numbers even close to that until now.
If all goes well, the Nightwatch can help people with epilepsy by “combining heart rate and movement resulted in reliable detection of a broad range of nocturnal seizures.”
“It is well accepted, is easy to use, and provides accurate measurements over time,” the research states. “The device can also be used to monitor epilepsy treatment.”
