Detecting Febrile Seizures in Infants

Detecting Febrile Seizures in Infants

January 2018 – May 2018

Collaborators: Jared Brown, Janet Kim, Michael Brolly, Lindsey Petritis, Anna Dent, Hannah Kim, Sam Keller

In a group of eight, we researched the risks and implications of febrile seizures. We used our research to brainstorm three possible solutions and investigated their potential. We then developed a prototype to detect prolonged febrile seizures based on sEMG signals to be worn as an arm band as babies slept. We created and performed a local experiment to validate the device. This was our first semester-long project where we were able to take away key lessons about the device design process and the importance of planning. We learned how to balance multiple schedules, divide work loads, and share completed work with a large team.
