BRAIN MONITOR

This epilepsy device, designed by student Michael Kinrade, uses technology similar in principle to that found in a car airbag system. Small electrical signals, continually emitted by the brain, are monitored by the device. When an epileptic seizure occurs, these signals alter. The device triggers a small airbag in a slimline carbon fibre helmet. The […]
