In general, Epi-Care products have a sensor that detects movement. It can distinguish normal movements from movements that are characteristic of tonic-clonic epileptic seizures. When a seizure is registered, carers are alerted by sound and light signals of the base unit or by an alarm forwarded to pagers, installed call systems or phones.
There are different Epi-Care products. When using the Epi-Care 3000 bed alarm, the sensor is placed under the mattress of the bed, in Epi-Care free and Epi-Care mobile the sensor is attached to a wristband and worn like a watch.
For more information, read the product pages of each device on our website or watch our videos.
Epi-Care products register characteristic movements and can therefore recognize tonic-clonic epileptic seizures, also called grand mal.
What are tonic-clonic seizures? Read more about it in our blog article.
We have three Epi-Care epilepsy alarms. Epi-Care 3000 is a bed sensor that can recognise tonic-clonic seizures during sleep. It is particularly suitable for smaller children, as it even recognizes weaker seizures. Epi-Care free is an epilepsy wristband that is worn when being indoors and can register epileptic seizures at night and during the day. Epi-Care mobile provides even more mobility. The epilepsy wristband is connected to an app on the smartphone and can therefore be used on the go.
How to finance your device and how it is installed depends on your country and distributor. Contact your local distributor for more information.
For Epi-Care free and Epi-Care 3000 it is possible to use additional material. An alarm can be forwarded from the base unit to a pager, an external call system or through a built-in GSM to a mobile phone.
Pager / external call system: The base unit is connected through the AUX port to a pager or external call system. This is helpful when the built-in audio may not be heard by carers due to the distance. This option is often used when external call systems already exist in care institutions.
GSM: Thanks to the built-in GSM, the device directs alarm calls and SMS to the phone of the carer. No mobile data is needed. This option is useful if built-in audio signals are not heard over long distances and the alarm should be received easily and quick on the mobile phone.
