Sleep without worrying about seizures …
The Epilepsy Safe-Bed Under Mattress Sensor is a patented state-of-the-art system that monitors sleepers for convulsive seizures from under the mattress or beneath the mattress overlay: there is no body contact with the sensor at all.
The Emfit laboratory in Finland pioneered the Quasi-Piezoelectric L-4060SL sensor, the patented dynamic thin film ferroelectric sensor; it is a state-of-the-art monitoring system that will monitor from under the mattress a sleeping adult or child who is at risk of a convulsive tonic-clonic seizure.
The sensor technology detects and distinguishes between normal movements from strong muscle jerking such as tonic-clonic seizures and acknowledges the presence and absence of micro-movements caused by breathing and heart beating.
Not only does the sensor give notification to a caregiver when the person has the clonic phase of a tonic-clonic seizure but also when the person leaves the bed (feature can be disabled) by a fall or not returning to their bed within a given timeframe.
The controller D-1090-2G has an audible alarm with adjustable volume and dry-contact relay output for connection to a wireless chime / personal pager to a family member that lives in another part of a home. For people living alone, the D-1090-2G controller will alert an emergency eAlert telephone to automatically dial preprogrammed numbers and give a recorded message to family or emergency services that a seizure is taking place.
