Recognises tonic-clonic seizures

Epi-Care free is designed to register and alert in case of tonic-clonic epileptic seizures. It recognises the distinctive movements of a seizure. Epi-Care free does not react to everyday movements, for example when a person eats, reads or sleeps.

 User experience

More freedom and security, less observation

User Sanne Marie Lorentzen lives at Sølund and suffers from epileptic seizures. With Epi-Care free, Sanne does not have to be under constant observation, which makes their work easier for carers - even at night.

The device gives Sanne and her carers more freedom and security. The long reach of the epilepsy wristband allows Sanne to move freely around the house. At school, she has a second Epi-Care free device, which she can also take to her parents at the weekend.

 
We think Danish Care Technology has developed an excellent system and would unreservedly recommend it to anyone with similar needs
— David, father, England
It gives us the freedom to be with Sanne when she needs us as a helpers instead of having her under constant surveillance
— Lisbeth, carer, Denmark

The scientific articles

Detection of generalized tonic–clonic seizures by a wireless wrist accelerometer: A prospective, multicenter study (2013)

"In this prospective, multicenter study we showed that a commercially available wireless wrist accelerometer sensor detects Generalized Tonic-Clonic Seizures with a high sensitivity (90%) and a low rate of false alarms"

User-based evaluation of applicability and usability of a wearable accelerometer device for detecting bilateral tonic–clonic seizures: A field study (2018)

"The median sensitivity (90%) and false alarm rate (0.1/d) were similar to what had been determined in Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. Patients and caregivers were overall satisfied with the device"
