You will be alerted if abdominal movement is weak or less than eight movements per minute. If there is no abdominal movement for 15 seconds it will vibrate in an effort to rouse your baby to resume abdominal movement. Often the vibration is enough to rouse the infant, however, after three vibration/rousing incidents, a rouse warning will alert you that movement has stopped for 15 seconds on three occasions. If an additional 5 seconds of no abdominal movement is detected a sharp audible alarm will sound.

Seer Medical


Seer Health has launched an app which is a world first, being able to forecast seizure risk for people with epilepsy. The Seer app relies on a history of recorded events to indicate when you might be more or less likely to have a seizure by identifying individual seizure cycles. Research has confirmed that seizures occur in rhythmic cycles — even without a person noticing — and that these cycles are common for people with all types of epilepsy.

This is called seizure forecasting and is similar to how a weather forecast can tell us if we should expect rain or shine. This new technology is a powerful tool for planning activities and managing life with epilepsy.

The app can also be linked to a Fitbit device which provides additional data, such as heart rate and sleep patterns, that help to improve the accuracy of your seizure risk.

It is available now for free for Android and iOS.
