Tonic-clonic seizure detection using accelerometry-based wearable sensors: a prospective, video-EEG controlled study

Generalized tonic-clonic, as well as focal to bilateral tonic-clonic seizures (TCSs) may lead to traumatic injuries and represent a major risk factor for sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), which, in turn, accounts for 10-50% of all deaths in the epilepsy population. [1,2] High frequency of TCSs is also associated with significant psychosocial disability and quality of life impairment [3,4].
