Abstract

Epilepsy is the most common psychological disorders in humans. Patients suffering from epilepsy usually experience behavioral symptoms, such as involuntary movement and rage reaction. Conventional monitoring with electroencephalogram and video is unpleasant for patients and not feasible for long-term monitoring. In this work, a seizure detection system with an accelerometer set on the subject's head is proposed to monitor the behavioral activities and to detect the seizure events in subjects. The Wistar rats with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) were used in our experiment. To reduce the computational energy, only one axis signal was utilized for seizure detection. A three-state finite state machine (FSM) was applied to determine the seizure activities, and the temporal features of y-axis ACC signal were calculated for state transition. The results show that our proposed on-line detection method can achieve 100% accuracy with extremely low false alarm rate of 0.035. It has the advantage of easy measurement and good performance for real-world applicability.
