REACT: Real-time EEG Analysis for Event Detection


Published on

The REACT technology is used for automatic, real-time detection of neurological events. Our focus in this work is on seizure detection, in both neonates and adults. We present three demonstrators of REACT in clinical, laboratory and ambulatory scenarios.
