Despite recent advances in anti-epileptic drugs, one-third of the people with epilepsy continuous to experience seizures. e-Glass is a new wearable system for real- time brain activity monitoring, leveraging edge-computing to account for several biomedical applications, including non- invasive epilepsy monitoring. By adopting advanced system design and machine learning techniques, e-Glass can reliably monitor brain activities continuously for more than 24 hours on a single battery charge.


e-Glass presents up to four high- resolution EEG channels for high quality signal acquisition. Its eyeglasses form factor is key to reduce stigma on daily use while maintaining the electrodes/skin contact. E-Glass state-of-the-art hardware is based only on off-the-shelf components, which allows easy industrialization and production scaling. The platform versatility allows implementing a diversity of algorithms, which can be helpful to trimming it for different applications based on real-time monitoring of brain activity.
