Nocturnal seizures are a major concern for parents and carers, especially for those caring for younger children. Brio is an amazing Epileptic Seizure alarm system, designed to alert you if a seizure is detected, even when there is no visible evidence a seizure is in progress. In fact, it may even be able to alert you prior to one occurring.
How Does Brio Work?
In many cases, the heart rate of someone with epilepsy can increase or even decrease just prior to a seizure occurring. The Brio system constantly monitors the user’s heart rate via a wrist worn sensor and feeds this information back to sophisticated software held on your smartphone or tablet. The Brio software allows you to set a safe “minimum and maximum” level for the users heart rate. The Epilepsy alert bracelet system then analyses this data flow and activates an alert if the heart rate activity falls outside the safe parameters, thereby alerting you to a potential seizure.
Seizure Data Stored
If the Brio system triggers an alarm, the heart rate data for the user is collected and stored. You can then export this data and easily converted into tables and graphs so that you can share the information with your consultant or healthcare professional.
The soft Epilepsy medical alert bracelet is available in two sizes and is suitable for babies as young as 5 months through to adults. The Epilepsy sensor can even be worn on the ankle so that sleep isn’t inhibited. The Brio sensor needs to be charged for use each day and works within the Bluetooth range of your smartphone or tablet (typically around 10 metres or so). You can even set up a Bluetooth speaker so you can hear the Epilepsy alert in another room.

“It has been a game changer! We use the brio pulse alert on his ankle, we found he would lay on his arms and it would interrupt the signal. We have had a few false alarms just whilst we find the right high and low rate for his pulse when sleeping and also if he wakes naturally in the night. Last night the alarm went off, we went in turned it off assuming he was stirring or waking, it kept going off. He was fine looked just sleeping until 10 seconds later the seizure started. The alarm meant we could be there with him from the start, time the seizure more accurately than ever and monitor his pulse throughout. We could then sleep better after the seizure knowing that the brio would detect any drop in pulse after the admission of the rescue medicine. We would highly recommend this incredible piece of technology and are so grateful it exists!” – Sarah

The data is very useful so we can go to his Consultant with all the evidence” – Mr and Mrs Boreham.

Yes , Brio works on either.
Can I use Brio on more than one device?
No – you can only use the Brio system on one device per activation key.
How far can the smartphone or tablet be away from the Brio wrist band?
The wristband needs to be within 10m of the smartphone or tablet that uses the Brio App
Can this distance be increased?
If you purchase a Bluetooth speaker with the Brio system this can increase the distance from where you can hear a Brio alert. The wristband can be 10m from the smartphone and the speaker can be a further 10m from the smartphone, essentially giving up to a 20m range. This distance can alter depending on the makeup of the home such as thickness of walls and floors etc.

Currently Brio will only activate an audible alert locally. It cannot send alerts to third parties.

The Brio wrist band lasts up to 8 hours on a 1 ½ hour charge. We supply two wrist bands when you purchase Brio. Many parents attach a band on each wrist when the child goes to bed but activate just one. When the parents then go to bed they will switch one off and the other wristband on which will provide monitoring for the whole night.

The Brio wristbands are made of soft silicone and are water resistant to 30m.
Will format does Brio supply the data in so I can share it with a Health Care Professional?
The Brio records data 5 minutes prior to a seizure, during the seizure and 5 minutes after the seizure has stopped. This information is stored locally on the app which can be easily emailed to a pc. This data will be in CSV format which can then be easily converted into easy to read graphs by using basic functionality in Microsoft Excel.
