    A new wristband will be able to diagnose and even predict potentially dangerous seizures.
    The wristbands will measure conductance, or how easily electrical current will pass through the skin. The skin conductance rises dramatically before and during a seizure, and the higher the conductance, the longer it takes for the brain to return to normal.
    The wristbands will be used to monitor people with seizure conditions, noting their intensity and possibly calling for help if the seizure is particularly strong.
