During the annual Delft Health Initiative contest for the best research idea, dr. Christos Strydis won 3rd place with his project proposal: “Ensemble, Closed-Loop, Epilepsy-Prevention System (ECLEPSys)”, along with a 10k-Euro award to kickstart the project. Based on a significant body of research already conducted within the Neuroscience Dept. on epilepsy, ECLEPSys advocates the use of Medical Body-Area Networks (M-BANs) for the timely suppression and (ideally) prevention of ictal events, restoring largely quality of life for epileptic patients. This project pertains to the rapid prototyping of various M-BAN nodes and is a synergy between the groups of dr. Christos Strydis (ErasmusMC) and prof. dr. Wouter Serdijn (TUDelft); a prominent case of the EMC-TUD convergence. Stay tuned for more updates on ECLEPSys!
