Workshop “Sensors for Epilepsy”
SensUs and neurologists from various backgrounds jointly organize an online workshop on the 26th of August. This workshop will clarify the needs of patients with epilepsy and of neurologists, and how their needs might be addressed by sensor development. Pitches will be given on seizures, stress, and inflammation in epilepsy, to develop a vision on what the lives of patients could look like in 2030.

SensUs 2020 focusses on epilepsy, a disease that affects 50 million people worldwide. In this year's Personal Story we talked with the mother of Sami. Sami was diagnosed with Dravet (a kind of epilepsy) at a very young age. His mother explains the complications that concern his disease.
