FAQs - About epilepsy alarms

What is an epilepsy alarm?

An epilepsy alarm is a specialised device designed to detect seizures in individuals with epilepsy and alert caregivers or loved ones promptly. These alarms are crucial for ensuring timely assistance during seizures, enhancing safety and peace of mind.

How do epilepsy alarms work?

Epilepsy alarms, such as bed sensor alarms or wearable alarms, typically utilise various sensors to detect abnormal movements or changes in body position associated with seizures.

Once a seizure is detected, the alarm triggers an alert, usually through sound, vibration, or notification to caregivers or family members to provide assistance.

Who can benefit from using an epilepsy seizure alarm?

Anyone who experiences seizures, especially those occurring during sleep or when unattended, can benefit from using an seizure alert device.

Caregivers, family members, and healthcare professionals also find epilepsy alarms helpful in monitoring and providing assistance to individuals with epilepsy.

Are epilepsy alarms suitable for children?

Epilepsy alarms are suitable for children with epilepsy. Many alarms are designed to be adjustable and can accommodate different age groups. However, it's essential to choose an alarm system that is appropriate for the child's age and needs.

Epilepsy Alarms UK offers devices suitable for individuals aged three and above, with each device tailored to specific needs. Please refer to the product pages for more details.

Can epilepsy alarms be used at night?

Many epilepsy alarms are designed specifically for night time use, featuring bed sensors or wearable devices that can detect seizures and alert caregivers without disrupting sleep.

At Epilepsy Alarms UK we have a device that is able to identify tonic-clonic seizure induced movements whilst ignoring sleep activities. Learn more about the Alert-iT Companion Mini on our product page.

How reliable are epilepsy alarms and watches in detecting seizures?

Epilepsy alarms and watches vary in reliability depending on factors such as sensor technology, sensitivity settings, and individual seizure patterns.

While most devices are designed to be highly accurate, it's essential to choose a reputable brand and follow the manufacturer's instructions for optimal performance.

How do I choose the right epilepsy monitoring system for my needs?

When selecting a seizure alert device, consider factors such as the individual's seizure patterns, lifestyle, preferences, and budget. Research different alarm systems, read reviews from other users, and consult with healthcare professionals or epilepsy specialists for recommendations tailored to your specific requirements.

Can you get funding for an epilepsy alarm?

Funding for epilepsy alarms is available through various channels to support individuals in need.

At Epilepsy Alarms UK, we understand the financial challenges that can come with purchasing specialised medical equipment like epilepsy alarms. That's why we strive to provide information and resources to help individuals access funding options.

FAQs - About epilepsy

What is epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterised by recurrent seizures, which are sudden, unprovoked electrical disturbances in the brain. These seizures can vary in severity and may manifest as convulsions, loss of consciousness, or abnormal sensations.

How common is epilepsy?

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders, affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. It is estimated that around 50 million people worldwide live with epilepsy, with over 625,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK alone.

What are the causes of epilepsy?

Epilepsy can have various causes, including genetic factors, brain injuries, infections, brain tumours, and developmental disorders. In many cases, the exact cause of epilepsy may not be identified.

What triggers seizures?

It's important to note that triggers are distinct from underlying causes and can vary from person to person. Common triggers include sleep deprivation, stress, excitement, alcohol consumption, and failure to adhere to prescribed medication regimens.

While rare, some individuals with epilepsy may experience seizures triggered by specific visual stimuli such as flashing or flickering lights, or certain patterns.

What are the available treatments for epilepsy?

The primary treatment for epilepsy is anti-seizure medication (ASM), also known as antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). These medications are designed to prevent or reduce the occurrence of seizures in individuals with epilepsy.

There are also some alternative treatment options available for individuals whose seizures are not adequately controlled with medication. These options include vagus nerve stimulation therapy, epilepsy surgery, and the ketogenic diet.

To know more, please read our blog post on finding the right treatment for epilepsy.

What is vagus nerve stimulation therapy, and how does it work?

Vagus nerve stimulation therapy involves a stimulator, or pulse generator, which is surgically implanted and connected to the left vagus nerve in the neck. The stimulator sends mild electrical impulses to the nerve, helping to regulate abnormal brain activity associated with seizures.

How does epilepsy surgery help in treating seizures?

Epilepsy surgery, also known as brain surgery or neurosurgery, is a treatment option for individuals with epilepsy who typically meet specific criteria which includes having previously tried anti-epileptic drugs which have proved ineffective in treating the condition, and you are experiencing focal seizures (seizures that begin in a specific area of the brain).

For more information please consult with your GP or a local neurologist.

What is the ketogenic diet, and how does it benefit individuals with epilepsy?

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that has been shown to be effective in reducing seizures in some individuals with epilepsy, particularly children or adults whose seizures are not controlled with medication. The diet may help reduce the frequency or severity of seizures and may have additional positive effects on overall health.

To know more, please read our blog post on How Keto Diet Could Reduce Seizures.

You should always consult your GP or epilepsy consultant before making drastic changes to your diet.

How can I determine the most suitable treatment option for my epilepsy?

The most suitable treatment option for epilepsy depends on various factors, including the type of seizures, individual health status, and treatment goals.

It's essential to consult with a healthcare professional, such as a neurologist or epilepsy specialist, who can provide personalised recommendations and guidance based on your specific needs and circumstances.

Do hormonal fluctuations affect epilepsy in women and girls?

Hormonal fluctuations can significantly impact the onset, frequency, and remission of epilepsy in certain women and girls. These changes occur during puberty, throughout the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause, potentially influencing the course of the condition.

To learn more, please read our blog on how epilepsy affects women and girls.
