Advanced Tonic-Clonic Seizure Detection

embrace2 colours

Embrace2 is the latest epilepsy sensor from Empatica who have established themselves as leading experts in producing devices designed to detect seizures. Embrace2 is certified as a medical device in Europe and has gained FDA clearance in the US, which confirms the high rate of accuracy and reliability.

The wrist worn seizure monitor measures Electrodermal Activity (EDA), which means it detects changes in certain properties of the skin. This includes sweat secretion, a common indicator of potential seizure activity.

The Embrace2 sensor includes an accelerometer and gyroscope to monitor repetitive movement patterns and a temperature sensor, all of which assist with detecting potential tonic clonic seizures. The Embrace2 is the only epilepsy sensor available to combine both EDA and motion to detect seizures, which is proven to be more accurate than movement alone.

Embrace2: Live Better with Epilepsy

The Embrace2 is the only wrist-worn seizure monitor cleared by the FDA in the United States and certified as a medical device in Europe.

Superior accuracy in the field

Embrace2 offers an excellent level of accuracy of all at-home, wearable consumer epilepsy devices, making it the right choice for seizure monitoring

You don’t have to worry about interruptions during sleep or periods of rest due to its unique rest mode that detects any possible convulsive seizures and sends alerts to caregivers within 15 seconds.

Alert Carers and Loved Ones

The Embrace2 sensor monitors changes in physiological conditions as well as movements that can be associated with seizures and communicates this data to a connected smartphone device.

When the Embrace2 detects signals that indicate seizure activity, it will use the connected smartphone to alert carers or loved ones via phone or SMS. The Embrace2 connects to the smartphone device via Bluetooth and must remain within 10m of the sensor.

Data and alerts are handled by two Embrace2 apps that can be downloaded via the App Store or Google Play.

Long Battery, Fast Charging

The Embrace sensor is worn on the wrist and connects to a nearby smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. Embrace2 weighs just 13g and is fully charged within 90 minutes. The battery lasts for 48 hours before it needs recharging.

Embrace2 is FDA cleared (US) and CE certified.

“Makes it easier for people with epilepsy to detect seizures and
let others know when they need help.”

Embrace2 Alert App

The Alert App collects real time data from the sensor and detects any unusual patterns in movement and the EDA. If potential seizure activity is detected, the app will use either the mobile data or WiFi to send an automated SMS message and call your chosen carergivers.

Rest Mode

This setting has extra sensitivity that helps the Embrace2 detect seizures during periods of rest, especially nocturnal seizures. Whether you are sleeping, reading a book or watching TV, Rest Mode will monitor your signals and immediately alert for possible tonic-clonic seizures.

Alerts with Location

Enhance alerts with your precise GPS location to expedite assistance. This is available in Standard and Plus subscription plans.

Who can use the Embrace2?

Embrace2 can be used by both adults and children. It is designed to detect tonic-clonic seizures lasting longer than 20 seconds.

What seizure types does Embrace2 detect?

Embrace2 has been designed to help detect signals associated with tonic clonic seizures. This includes movement and variations in the skin.

Embrace2 is not suitable to detect complex partial seizures, absence seizures or other non convulsive seizure.

What does Embrace2 do?

When Embrace2 detects a tonic-clonic seizure, it communicates with its companion app

Alert on its paired mobile device to alert your caregivers with a phone call and text message.

Embrace2 does not predict seizures. It is designed to expedite assistance when a seizure occurs. To learn more about how Embrace2 works, watch our animated video .

What do I need for Embrace2 to work?

The person using the Embrace2 will need two things:

1) A compatible smart device with a stable internet connection (via Wifi or mobile signal)

2) Alert App with an active subscription plan. This can be set up once we deliver the sensor by registering it on the Empatica website.

Remember, the person wearing Embrace2 needs the connected mobile device within a 10-metre radius at all times, but alerts can be sent to caregivers at any location.

What mobile devices can be used with the Embrace?

iOS - Currently, the Embrace2 works on iOS 10 or higher. You can also use the iPod Touch (6th Gen) and all iPad models since 2013. Please note the Alert app is not optimised for the Pad screen.

Android – You can use the Embrace2 on devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher, as long as they support Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE / 4.0 / Bluetooth Smart). We cannot guarantee full compatibility with devices using any custom or unofficial versions of Android.

Please be aware that not all Android devices that list Bluetooth 4.0 in their specifications support BLE. Please contact your device supplier to confirm your device meets this requirement.

What does the Alert App do?

The Alert App notifies your active caregivers with a phone call and text message containing your GPS location whenever Embrace2 detects a possible tonic-clonic seizure. Without Alert downloaded on your phone and configured with an active subscription plan, caregivers cannot be alerted.

Who should download the Alert App?

The person using Embrace should download the Alert app on their paired mobile device. Caregivers won't need to download it to receive alerts.

The Mate App will automatically collect reviewed seizure data from Alert and, together with the physical activity and rest data, provide you with an accurate, easy-to-view diary. You can bring Mate along with you to doctor visits or share your data via email.

Who is the Mate App for?

Can I use the Embrace2 without a subscription?

Whilst you can use the Mate app without a subscription you do need one to get the maximum benefit of the Embrace2.

One of the main features of the Embrace2 is the alerts it sends to loved ones and carers. Without the Alert app and its subscription, this feature is not available. If you do not want to pay any subscription for an epilepsy sensor then you may want to look at our other wrist worn devices.
