Detecting Seizures in Dogs

Published 4/21/2021


Epilepsy affects 1 out every 130 dogs (0.75%), a condition that affects both the well-being of the canine and owner. Current standard methods for monitoring epilepsy are often invasive for patients. However, non-invasive reporting of seizure episodes in dogs will allow clinicians to fully track a patient’s seizure history and better inform the treatment of their epileptic patients. This project focuses on using accelerometric and gyroscopic sensors to detect and identify movement in order to capture critical data points in canine epilepsy.
