How we can help
Assistive technology can promote a sense of independence for those living with epilepsy, whilst providing peace of mind and reassurance for loved ones and carers.
Epilepsy sensors are used to monitor people with epilepsy while they are asleep in bed. Patented sensor technology detects a person’s movement in bed and is able to differentiate normal movements from epileptic seizures enabling tonic clonic seizures to be detected the moment they occur. They help carers respond quickly when needed, and avoid disturbing a person's sleep when they are not. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted to best suit the person's requirements.
This sensor is suitable for use with children as well as adults.
Outside the home
Our GPS falls detector recognises when a person falls and connects straight through to our alarm response centre - ensuring help is on its way when you need it most. The alarm can be set up to alert an emergency contact or we can request an ambulance right away - the plan can be tailored to your individual needs.
This is a great solution for teenagers or adults with epilepsy. In many cases a parent or carer for someone with epilepsy will undertake regular checks or need to be on hand 24/7. This means constant worry for the care giver and a loss of independence for the individual. Our Footprint device will automatically raise an alert if it detects a fall, (no need to press a button) as well as being able to locate where you are. This enables appropriate care to be provided quickly, without the need for manual checks.
