Seizure Alert Technology
Seizure Alert Technology Display & Seizure Alert Technology booklet
Epilepsy WA has compiled a Seizure Alert Technology booklet 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 Seizure Alert Technology booklet by clicking below (in pdf format), please call 1300 660 880 if you require further assistance. Epilepsy WA also has the largest display of these devices available in Australia, to view in our Nedlands office, for the interest and benefit of our WA community.
We also loan free Emfit Tonic Clonic Seizure Alert Bed Sensor Mats to members of Epilepsy WA who reside in WA for a one month period, and also the NightWatch seizure alert device. Please note while the Night Watch is suitable for ages 4 and up, our loan program on this particular device is for children and young adults, thanks to Telethon (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.
