The NESTED study is developing methods of detecting seizures in premature babies.

What is NESTED?

NESTED is a project which will develop, test and train an algorithm which can detect seizures in premature babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). It follows on from the ANSER project, which focused on full-term babies. With NESTED, our researchers aim to develop a robust, reliable, automated seizure detection system for the detection of seizures in preterm neonates and facilitate prompt treatment.

How does NESTED work?

INFANT has access to a unique data set which will help to develop and train the necessary algorithms. Together with our industry partner, our researchers aim to make the algorithm compliant with regulations and ready for licence once the project is completed.
