Tampere University Hospital (Tays), Neuro Event Labs’ key client, has been using our epilepsy monitoring solution together with a vagus nerve stimulator (VNS) to treat patients with epilepsy and to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment. As part the cooperation, a Tays patient used NEL’s night-time epilepsy monitoring solution for a full month, right at the patient’s home.
Several hospitals in Finland are currently using Nelli, our non-intrusive monitoring solution. Hospitals use Nelli to pre-filter patients to vEEG, long-term monitoring of epilepsy patients and several research purposes. The solution is currently utilized by the Tampere University Hospital, the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS), Kuopio University Hospital and hospitals in Seinäjoki and Vaasa.
Tampere University Hospital has been one of our research partners since day one. In addition to research cooperation, the hospital has also adopted NEL’s monitoring system for patient care. In once instance, the monitoring solution detected as many as 70 seizures, while the patient’s family member only identified four seizures.
Due to its capability to provide objective and quantitative data, Nelli is a natural fit to help pharma companies develop their treatments become even better and more individualized. Neuro Event Labs has an on-going research project with international pharma company Eisai, which is part of the long term co-operation.
