Device measures skin’s electricity to predict seizures

A new device, called Embrace, can predict a seizure before it occurs. MIT scientists discovered that there are spikes in electrical activity in the skin about 20 minutes before seizures happen. The new smartwatch will measure skin electricity, and alert the wearer of a spike so precautionary measures can be taken in time. Embrace will also measure physical activity and sleep quality.
