Epi-Care is a unique Epilepsy Medical wrist worn sensor that detects tonic clonic seizures. It has a discreet and modern design, which is unobtrusive for the user.

The lightweight sensor can be worn 24 hours a day and only needs an hour to charge. The advanced 3-axis accelerometer can detect convulsions and vibrations that occur during seizures. The intelligent gyroscope within the wristband can differentiate between a seizure and the movement of everyday activities.

The Epi-Care wrist sensor connects to your Android smartphone via Bluetooth and sends data to the Epi-Care epilepsy app that we provide as part of the package. This enables you to wear the alarm wherever you go during the day.

If you experience a seizure the app will immediately send an alert to registered friends or loved ones. If you prefer you can subscribe to our 24/7 monitoring service, so alerts are sent directly to our care team who can then summon immediate assistance. The alert can be sent by text and voice and will include your GPS co-ordinates ensuring help can be sent directly to your location.

You must have an Android smartphone from our current approved list for the epilepsy App. The handset must be within a range of 20m from the Epi-Care epilepsy alert bracelet for it to work effectively.
