Epilepsy and safer sleeping
NightWatch is a clinically proven system for detecting possible dangerous epileptic seizures during sleep.
Safe and effective seizure detection system
NightWatch is a comfortable armband that closely monitors the wearer’s heart rate and motion during sleep.
When the system suspects a possible major epileptic seizure, a warning is transmitted to a caregiver via a wireless signal to the armband’s corresponding base station.
The system is optimized to detect all possible dangerous epileptic seizures, including tonic and tonic-clonic seizures.
Who is NightWatch for?
Parents and caregivers
Patients living independently
NightWatch reduces the burden of parents or caregivers by sending a wireless alert in the event of a possible severe nocturnal epileptic seizure.
NightWatch detects the majority of clinically urgent epileptic seizures at an early stage. It improves the quality of care and reduces the burden of healthcare professionals.
NightWatch alerts caregivers to possible clinically urgent nocturnal seizures, thus enabling patients to live independently.
NightWatch can help the partner of an epilepsy patient get better sleep by emitting a warning signal when a possibly dangerous seizure is taking place.
A comprehensive study by the Dutch epilepsy centres SEIN and Kempenhaeghe, in which a large group of patients participated over thousands of nights, showed that NightWatch detects 96% of the most dangerous seizures and alerts caregivers in time.
NightWatch is supported and has received a donation from the Dutch Epilepsy Fund.
