We are proud to Partner with the Danny Did Foundation!
We have partnered with the Danny Did Foundation through our NillyNoggin’s Across the Nation Program. Danny Did is a top sponsor in our program in which NillyNoggin EEG Caps are donated to Children’s Hospitals across the Nation. The Danny Did Foundation chose to send NillyNoggin EEG Caps to Boston Children’s Hospital and Children’s Wisconsin!
Co-branded NillyNoggin EEG Caps are being used at both Boston Children’s Hospital and Children’s Wisconsin thanks to the Danny Did Foundation!

The Danny Did Foundation works toward its mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures with these main goals in mind:
- Advancing public awareness of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).
- Enhancing the SUDEP communication model between medical professionals and families afflicted by seizures.
- The mainstreaming of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths. They view these devices as complimentary to medicinal, surgical and dietary measures that are used to treat seizures.
