Advanced multi-paRametric Monitoring and analysis for diagnosis and Optimal management of epilepsy and Related brain disorders

Project description

Personal Health Systems (PHS)

ARMOR is a flexible, holistic and economical monitoring tool of the brain. It diagnozes and manages epileptic seizures efficiently including possibilities for detecting premonitory signs and feedback to the patient. The tool is optimized for each patient and is tested in several case studies which evaluated it as a wide use ambulatory monitoring tool. 

To develop the ARMOR tool, the projects experts managed and analysed a large number of already acquired and new multimodal and advanced technology data from brain and body activities of epileptic patients and controls (MEG, multichannel EEG, video, ECG, GSR, EMG, etc).

Novel approaches for large scale analysis (both real-time and offline) of multi-parametric streaming and archived data were being introduced to discover patterns and associations between external indicators and mental states, detect correlations among parallel observations, and identify vital signs changing significantly. Moreover methods for automatically summarizing results and efficiently managing medical data were developed in the framework of the project.

The EU funded ARMOR project will be completed in October 2014. Eight organizations of five European countries (Greece, Spain, Cyprus, Germany and UK) are involved.
