Epi-Care is a unique Epilepsy Medical alert bracelet that detects Tonic Clonic seizures. Its’s suitable for anyone over 10 years old. With a discreet and modern design, the wrist worn Epi-Care Epilepsy alert bracelet is an unobtrusive to the needs of many people living with epilepsy
The lightweight Epilepsy sensor is worn on the wrist and can be worn throughout the day and night. It needs just 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 direct 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 so that any 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.

We ordered this for our son who was just starting University. Its been brilliant as we don’t worry so much about him and he has the confidence to live a normal life. We have been alerted a few times and we have been able to get him help as we were able to see exactly where he was when his seizure started. – E. Smith, Yorkshire
Great device, easy to use and really helps my daughter to feel confident when she goes out. It’s more expensive than a bed sensor there but its worth every penny. – A. Sousa, London
