ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)-Epilepsy is a neurological condition which affects the nervous system. Known as a seizure disorder, it affects nearly three million Americans. Now, there's a new device being used to help patients live a normal life.
NeuroPace is a small, battery powered device surgically implanted in the skull that continuously monitors brain electrical activity. The neurostimulator can deliver brief pulses of stimulation when it detects activity that could lead to a seizure, preventing the seizure before it happens.
