Scientific research at SEIN

Scientific research at SEIN concentrates on improving diagnosis and treatment options. De knowledge that scientific research provides is used to improve the care and quality of life of people with epilepsy.

It is clear that seizures are caused by a sudden disruption in brain activity, but it is not yet known why this occurs. Scientific research enables us to  better understand and treat epilepsy. 

Scientific research, diagnosis and treatment

SEIN strives to continue to innovate in the field of scientific research. For example, SEIN has developed a more patient-friendly method of stopping prolonged seizures: the Midazolam nose spray. This spray is as effective, but more user-friendly, than the traditional rectiole, which had to be inserted rectally. The nose spray is now the most common treatment method to stop seizures.
