The team aims to recruit 50 patients and they are almost at their goal! If you know someone over the age of 18 who suffers from a minimum of four seizures per month, is on medication for epilepsy, and is English speaking, they may qualify.
Interested patients can contact Novela via their website or email [email protected] and they will be referred to the study partner Epilepsy Ottawa. Participants commit to a 90-day trial with a survey every 30 days. They may also qualify to keep the equipment and services free for one year after the trial ends.
