Safe and effective seizure detection system
The NightWatch is a comfortable armband that closely monitors the wearer’s heart rate and motion during sleep.
When the system suspects a major epileptic seizure, a warning is transmitted to a caregiver via a wireless signal to the armband’s corresponding base station.
The system is optimised to detect all dangerous epileptic seizures, including tonic and tonic-clonic seizures.
The NightWatch is intended for patients, parents and healthcare professionals who are seeking an effective way of being alerted to severe nocturnal epileptic seizures in a timely manner.
Parents of children with epilepsy
Healthcare professionals with epileptic clients
People with epilepsy who wish to live more independently
“The NightWatch is a system that was developed in collaboration with patients and which reliably recognises nocturnal motor seizures and raises the alarm. A long-cherished wish of many, enabling them to sleep more peacefully.”
Dr. F.S.S. Leijten
“We feel completely reassured thanks to the NightWatch. We are always alerted if our daughter Leen has a severe seizure. When Leen stays over somewhere, the NightWatch goes with her so that the night-time care team will be alerted in the event of a seizure.”
Father of Leen
“The NightWatch detects seizures far more effectively than the product we used previously and is therefore part of our medical kit.”

The NightWatch system and our company, LivAssured, as a whole came about as the result of a unique partnership between the Kempenhaeghe and SEIN epilepsy centres, the University Medical Centre (UMC) Utrecht, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Epilepsiefonds (Epilepsy Foundation), and patient representatives.
The LivAssured team consists of experienced entrepreneurs and motivated engineers with a passion for making innovative medical technology accessible to those who really need it to be able to live life as normally as possible.
