Cameron Boyce was a Disney actor who died from having a seizure while sleeping. The actor suffered from epilepsy. Following the sudden death of the Disney Star, researchers at the University of Iowa have been trying to spread awareness and warn people of the risk of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDE). They have been looking for solutions to this problem, such as some type of device that could warn family members if the person with epilepsy is in danger.
