New epilepsy warning device could save thousands of lives
A new high-tech bracelet, developed by scientists from the Netherlands detects 85 percent of all severe night-time epilepsy seizures.
That is a much better score than any other technology currently available. The researchers involved think that this bracelet can reduce the worldwide number of unexpected night-time fatalities in epilepsy patients. They published the results of a prospective trial this week in the scientific journal Neurology.
Tabletop infrared light. Provides additional strong illumination for the SAMi-3 camera improving image and motion detection performance in complete darkness. Allows you to turn off the SAMi-3 camera red lights and eliminates extra recordings and alarms caused by light reflections from dust in the air. Light sensor automatically turns the illuminator off during the day.
Warns caregivers remotely in the event of epileptic seizures during sleep. Conceived by Dutch neurologists and recommended by patients.
The NightWatch consists of a comfortable wireless armband that closely monitors heart rate and motion while the wearer is lying in bed.
When the NightWatch detects a potentially severe seizure, a warning is transmitted to a caregiver via a wireless signal to the armband’s corresponding base station.
