Head First – review of epilepsy head injury risk and protection


The paper sets out to discover what the epidemiology is for head injury in epilepsy and how helmet design might address this. Falls and resultant head injuries in people with epilepsy are a complex clinical issue. Head injury is defined as ‘any trauma to the head other than superficial injuries to the face’ and concussion is defined as ‘a disturbance in the function of the brain caused by direct or indirect force to the head’ [1].
