Wearables are receiving much attention from both epilepsy patients and treating physicians, for monitoring of seizure frequency and warning of seizures. They are also of interest for the detection of seizure-associated risks of patients, for differential diagnosis of rare seizure types and prediction of seizure-prone periods. Accelerometry, electromyography (EMG), heart rate and further autonomic parameters are recorded to capture clinical seizure manifestations. Currently, a clinical use to document nocturnal motor seizures is feasible. In this review the available devices, data on the performance in the documentation of seizures, current options for clinical use and developments in data analysis are presented and critically discussed.
