EEC 2022 | Key needs to bring long-term monitoring devices into the epilepsy clinic

Pedro Viana, MD, PhD Candidate, King’s College London, London, UK, discusses the key needs to enable the integration of wearable technology into everyday clinical practice for patients with epilepsy. Physician preconceptions may be one aspect limiting the potential of wearable long-term monitoring devices. Improving awareness of the recent data demonstrating feasibility of at home self-recording may help drive wearables into the clinic. Cost-effectiveness is an additional aspect that needs further investigation. Analyzing the cost of long-term monitoring versus the potential savings they could bring through improved diagnosis and forecasting (i.e., reducing emergency care costs), may show that wearable technologies are cost-effective for daily practice. This interview took place at the 14th European Epilepsy Congress (EEC) 2022 in Geneva, Switzerland.
