Seizure Alert & Detection Devices
There are over 40 different types of seizures. Seizure alert & detection devices can assist in detecting when a seizure is occurring and will issue an alert to parents, friends, or caregivers. Consult your neurologist and research available devices. The devices listed below only detect tonic-clonic (grand mal) seizures.
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a concern for many parents whose child with epilepsy has seizures during the night. While no device has been proven to prevent seizure-related deaths, technology is available that can significantly lower the risk.
JoshProvides encourages you to reach out to the manufacturers directly, talk with your child’s physician, and make a decision as to the type of technology that best fits the needs of your specific situation.
