Seizures in neonates, the most common sign of neurological dysfunction, require immediate medical attention. A new system for the detection of neonatal seizures using the wearable sensor is presented. The system including smart vest and system software aims for providing reliable continuous monitoring as well as a comfortable clinical environment for neonatal seizure and giving an alarm when seizure occurs on the basis of Electrocardiogram (ECG) and motion sensing techniques. We present the concept of the neonatal vest that enables ECG measurement by textile and motion measurement by Inertial Measurement Units (IMU). Furthermore, we explore a new software system for receiving, displaying and analyzing data based on android system. An iterative design process in close contact with experts and designers leads to a balanced integration of technology and aesthetics. We demonstrate the design process and the work in progress on the prototype.
