“Inaccurate seizure counts can make it difficult for clinicians to understand how to assess the efficacy of current treatments or move forward with changes in AEDs or other treatment strategies.” 1
Objective Data to Help You Optimize Treatment Plans
The RNS® System is the only epilepsy therapy that empowers you with real-world intracranial EEG (iEEG) data that can help you gain insight into the effects of other therapies.
Early Assessment of Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs)
iEEG data recorded by the RNS System may provide an early assessment of whether an adjunctive AED is likely to improve seizure frequency.2

Gain Insight into the Effects of Other Treatments
In two case studies, electrographic changes observed with RNS System data corresponded with improved clinical outcomes when assessing both the ketogenic diet and cannabidiol.3,4,†
Assessing the Ketogenic Diet
In this case study, a reduction in event detections by the RNS System was coincident with initiation of the ketogenic diet.3,†
Red arrow indicates initiation of Cannabidiol. Patient reported seizure freedom after initiation, which correlates with a decrease in number of event detections by the RNS System.4,†
