By: Katie Adams

OSF Ventures, the innovation investment arm of Peoria, Ill.-based OSF HealthCare, joined a $12.5 million funding round for Epitel, a company that makes a wireless, wearable brain wave- monitoring device to detect seizures.

The device uses an adhesive that discreetly sticks to a patient's scalp. The device has been approved by the FDA for in-hospital use, and Epitel plans to seek approval for its use across a variety of patient care settings, according to a March 10 news release from OSF HealthCare.
