Epilepsy Care

What is a seizure movement detection alarm?

When a person in bed experiences an epileptic, or diabetic seizure, the body produces muscular spasms (Tonic/Clonic). Monitors are designed to identify this movement and raise an alert to a carer. Medpage Limited T/A Easylink UK, established 1984, have provided solutions to aid epilepsy care for over 25 years, specialising in the design and manufacture of monitors that detect seizure movements from a sleeping person in bed.

How do they work?

A sensor is positioned under the bed mattress to detect body movements. Medpage monitors use sophisticated software algorithms to identify seizure movements from normal sleeping movement. As a seizure progresses, depending on setting, of sensitivity and alarm delay, an alarm is quickly generated to alert a carer, usually via an alarm pager or portable alarm.

How do I know which model will be suitable?

Medpage manufacture several different models to suit different patient groups. Generally, the method of seizure detection is common to all models, except for the MP5-ULTRA, which has different specialised operating software to enable use with complex epilepsy and specialist bed types, such as air flow mattresses. The choice of alarm notification receiver is an important consideration. The table below provides a basic guide. For professional use, all models can be connected to a commercial nurse call or Telecare system. Further advice is available if you call our experts on 01536 264 869.

What if we buy a seizure alarm and it is not suitable?

No problem. We offer a 28-day trial period to allow you to try out the monitor (UK only). You may return the equipment back to us for a refund equal to the purchase price (excluding return postage costs). We do not recycle previously used equipment.
