Seizure Alert Devices

Seizure Alert Devices

Thankfully there are now many seizure alert device options available to Western Australians providing practical support, increased sense of independence and increased peace of mind for individuals living with epilepsy, and for those caring for loved ones diagnosed with this chronic neurological disorder. A growing range of these monitoring and alarm devices offer a variety of technological features and differing degrees of sensitivity and reliability, so each seizure alert product featured here should be evaluated and compared to determine its suitability for individual needs and seizure types.* (There are also a multitude of general fall detectors and non-seizure detecting baby monitors on the market.)

We recommend that seizure alert devices are considered as just one part of an overall risk reduction strategy, and that reducing your risk and achieving best practice epilepsy management is a discussion best had with your treating doctor. Some of these devices generate useful data which can be provided to your doctor or specialist for use in helping to determine treatment options. If you would like to find out about how you can reduce your risk of accident or injury caused by epilepsy visit: epilepsywa.asn.au/risk.
