Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital is the first hospital in Michigan with wireless epilepsy monitoring.

According to the hospital, the epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) is funded through philanthropic support and opened Wednesday.

“One of the most exciting changes in the new epilepsy monitoring unit is the integration of digital wireless monitoring,” says Dr. Angel Hernandez, division chief for pediatric neurosciences at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. “This new technology offers patients the ability to move freely in their rooms, unit and playroom during their testing, which can last from 24 hours to several days.”
