Epicranial Application of Stimulation Electrodes for Epilepsy

EASEE® Technology

  1. Pacemaker for the Brain
    • Implanted minimally invasive under the scalp, EASEE® acts as a pacemaker for the brain. It sends electrical impulses to the epileptic focus in short intervals, all without physically touching the brain.
  2. Not Perceptible
    • The entire EASEE® system operates discreetly, making it imperceptible to the patient and allowing full freedom of movement.
  3. Unique Stimulation Patterns
    • EASEE® features unique stimulation patterns, utilizing high-frequency alternating current and direct current-like pulses. These are designed to interrupt emerging seizures and stabilize brain activity over the long term.
  4. Individually Tailored
    • Furthermore, the stimulation parameters can be individually customized to find the optimal therapy settings for each patient.

Electrode Details

Ultra-thin implantable pseudo-Laplacian electrode

The innovative electrode arrangement enables focused brain stimulation without touching it.

A so-called Laplace electrode allows the creation of fields and currents perpendicular to the electrodes plane. In the EASEE® system, the outer ring-shaped electrode is replaced by four individual electrodes to adapt the alignment of the resulting electric field to spatially varying resistances. This allows significant currents to affect tissue on the brain's surface and in deeper structures, similar to more invasive procedures.
