living easier with epilepsy
For People with focal Epilepsy
- In Germany, approximately 830,000 people suffer from epilepsy. One in three individuals cannot be sufficiently helped with medication, or the side effects severely affect their quality of life.
- Studies show that these patients have had to wait for up to 22 years before medical or surgical alternatives are proposed to them.
- EASEE® aims to reduce this waiting time. Inquire about the new treatment method here and discuss with your doctor whether and how you can benefit from it.
When medications are not sufficiently effective and surgery is not an option
- Stimulating the brain without physical contact
- Invisible because it's beneath the skin
- Imperceptible because impulses are individually adjustable
Talk to your primary care physician or neurologist

What our patients ask
- Is EASEE® suitable for me?
- The EASEE® System is suitable for patients with focal epilepsies. If medication alone is not sufficiently effective or if there are significant side effects, EASEE® can be an option.
- Speak to your treating neurologist to determine if EASEE® is suitable for you.
- When do effects become noticeable?
- The effects are highly individual to each patient. In general, it's worthwhile to observe the effects for several months. Adjusting the stimulation parameters may help improve the effectiveness.
- What happens during the procedure?
- The EASEE® System is implanted under general anesthesia. Two incisions are made in the skin—one on the head, where the electrode is inserted beneath the skin, and one in the chest area for the battery. The procedure typically takes about 1.5 hours.
- How long does the battery last?
- The battery is designed to have a lifespan of several years.
- Can I discontinue my medication because of this?
- EASEE® is recommended as an additional therapy option alongside medications.
Connect & Inform
"It's not enough to develop and offer new therapies; it also requires information and the exchange of experiences about epilepsy and living with epilepsy," says Dr. med. Angela Liedler, CEO of Precisis GmbH, about the idea behind this platform.
