SmartWatch is an easy to use, non-invasive wristwatch that continuously monitors movements and instantly alerts family members and caregivers upon the onset of repetitive shaking.
The SmartWatch is an innovatively designed wrist watch that is worn like any other watch but its unique features help monitor your movement and detect any abnormal patterns in your movement such as those experienced in an epileptic seizure. In the event that abnormal motion is detected the watch triggers the accompanying smartphone app to send SOS alerts out to one or several defined SOS contacts.
Within seconds, family members receive the SmartWatch alerts, which include the date, time, location and duration of the event. Alerts can be sent to any phone, anywhere. SmartWatch users can summon help with the push of a button.
SmartWatch automatically records the movement patterns plus the time and duration of the event. These reports can be securely accessed for later review with physicians.
The SmartWatch connects to your Android smartphone via bluetooth which has a range of approx 40 meters, over this connection the watch sends information to the smartphone that is then sent up to our cloud. In the event of an emergency you can simply push the button on the side of the watch and this will tell the app to send your alerts to the nominated contacts along with your location.
If the watch is taken out of range of the accompanying smartphone then it will re-connect as soon as you bring it back in range.

Epilepsy Safe Bed
The Emfit Safe-bed is the first alarm that detects both the person’s tonic-clonic seizures which occur in bed and the person’s bed-exit with the same sensor. New, patented sensor technology detects all of a person’s movements while distinguishing normal movements from seizures with muscle jerkings.
Emfit Safe-bed also notices the presence and absence of a person. It alarms when the person has the clonic phase of a tonic-clonic seizure and when the person leaves the bed and does not return within a preset time. It has an audible alarm with adjustable volume and dry-contact relay output for connection to a nurse call system such as the BluePhone system sold by Epi-Assist.
The Emfit Epileptic Sensor Mat is a state-of-the-art bed monitoring system that will monitor a sleeping adult or child’s convulsive seizures from under the mattress.

This is a new product designed to make it safer for people who have falls and drop attacks. The Drop Support harness is a unique, upper body harness that wraps around the user’s waist, chest and torso, with an attached central handle running the length of the torso. The support handle is a point of contact between the user of the harness and the person assisting the user
This is what makes Drop Support unique. The support handle, located on the back, sits vertical, and not horizontal, like a standard gait belt. The vertical handle provides the assistant with a better means of controlling and managing the user’s directional motion.
The vertical Support Handle isn’t the only thing unique about Drop Support. The added support straps over the shoulder’s and chest area help the assistant in better managing and stopping forward falls. Another benefit of the Support Handle is that it sits higher up the back, and is more accessible when the user is seated. No need to go digging all the way down the back to find a waist belt.
Designed and produced by someone who has a family member with epilepsy – and drop attacks (tonic and atonic seizures), Drop Support is unique in that it secures the user’s whole upper body, with one centralised point of contact. It’s this point of contact that enables full fall support for the whole upper body, and the ability to re-stabilise the person, lessening the likelihood of injury.
Drop Support aims to try to support those that are unable to support themselves, by providing family members, caregivers, and practitioners another means of supporting their loved ones during a fall.
