The implant giving hope to Aussies with epilepsy

29 Jun 2021

Rachel and Stu Maybury's 15-year-old son Tommy has epilepsy, ADHD and autism. Ms Maybury also has epilepsy.

Professor Mark Cook and his team, have devised a small ‘Minder’ implant at the ACMD that could be life-changing for people with Epilepsy.

Ms Maybury is now one of 10 Australians to have had the Minder implant inserted for a trial, to test its ability to monitor brain activity in epilepsy sufferers.

The implant sends live brain activity data to the Minder app.
