The RNS® System is the only FDA-approved epilepsy device that continuously monitors brain activity, delivers personalized treatment by responding in real time to a patient’s unique seizure activity, and records intracranial EEG data that can help physicians optimize patient outcomes.
“The RNS System provides drug-resistant epilepsy patients with unparalleled seizure reduction, while giving physicians unprecedented visibility into their patients’ ongoing brain activity,” said
As part of the nSight Platform offering,
Through the companies’ partnership, patients can elect to share Seizure Tracker information with their physicians through the nSight Platform. This enables physicians to better assess their patients’ seizure burden, identify potential seizure triggers, and see trends in seizure activity based on medication or lifestyle changes.
“We are excited about what this partnership brings. When patients track their seizures, it empowers them to take an active role in managing their epilepsy. And when this information is combined with the RNS System data, physicians can discover powerful insights to inform patient care,” said
“I work as a team with my doctor to review the data from my RNS System and compare it to the seizure diary to identify triggers,” said Heather, a patient who has had the RNS System since 2015. “We found out that orange juice was a major trigger for me. I switched to taking my medications with water and immediately eliminated that post-medication seizure activity.”
The nSight Platform is especially helpful with the growing demand for telehealth visits. For epilepsy patients, Seizure Tracker can provide a convenient way to track daily seizure activity and share this information with their doctor. For physicians, the nSight Platform can provide a more comprehensive picture of their patient’s epilepsy, all in one centralized place.
About the RNS® System
The RNS® System, a paradigm-shifting treatment for drug-resistant focal epilepsy, is the only brain-responsive neuromodulation system approved by the FDA. The closed-loop technology delivers personalized, data-driven treatment targeted to the seizure source by continuously monitoring brain activity, recognizing a patient’s unique seizure pattern, and responding in real-time with imperceptible stimulation to prevent seizures. By recording ongoing EEG data, the RNS System provides physicians with a unique “window to the brain,” enabling them to remotely monitor their patients, gain insights based on brain activity, and use that information to optimize patient care.
Long-term clinical studies demonstrate that the RNS System provides significant reduction in seizure frequency and enduring improvements in quality of life and cognition, with no stimulation-related side effects.1
The RNS System is available at most comprehensive epilepsy centers in
About Seizure Tracker™
Founded in 2007 by parents of a child suffering from daily seizures, Seizure Tracker™ provides a collection of web, mobile and voice interaction tools for people living with seizures to collect epilepsy related information and easily share that data with their doctors. Reports generated on the Seizure Tracker system provide extensive data visualizations comparing therapies against seizure activity changes while highlighting trends. With a strong connection to the epilepsy patient, physician and research communities, Seizure Tracker has grown into the largest collection of seizure and related therapy data in the world, opening new doors to data driven research and effectively changing the way we think about managing seizures.
