Seizure Alert Technology Display & Fact Sheet
Epilepsy WA has compiled a fact sheet that explains the different types of seizure Alert/Seizure Monitor devices that we know to be available and the types of seizures that they may be able to detect. You can view the fact sheet by clicking below (in pdf format), please call 1300 660 880 if you require further assistance. Epilepsy WA also has a number of these devices on display in our Nedlands office for the interest of our community. We also loan free Emfit Tonic Clonic Seizure Alert Bed Mats to members for a period and also the NightWatch seizure alert device for children, for evaluation purposes (subject to availability, terms and conditions apply).
Epilepsy WA also provides as a public service, a range of free online information sessions/webinars about several seizure alert devices aimed at helping our community to better understand the options available to them. Click here to view Epilepsy WA’s online information sessions/webinars.
Those living with epilepsy may wish to consider a seizure alert device as just one part of an overall risk reduction plan. This is a rapidly developing field and we do our best to stay abreast of options and new technologies. The use of seizure alert devices is a personal choice and a conversation is best had with your treating clinician around the appropriateness or otherwise of the individual device(s) for your own unique circumstance.
