Seizure detection for nocturnal epilepsy
Warns caregivers remotely in the event of possible epileptic seizures during sleep. Conceived by Dutch neurologists and recommended by patients.
NightWatch consists of a comfortable wireless armband that closely monitors heart rate and motion while the wearer is lying in bed.
When NightWatch detects a potentially severe seizure, a warning is transmitted to a caregiver via a wireless signal from the arm module to the corresponding base station.
Precise and versatile
NightWatch can detect various types of seizures with a high level of precision, including:
Clustered myoclonic seizures
Clinically proven effective
NightWatch was successfully tested over thousands of nights by the SEIN and Kempenhaeghe epilepsy centres and found to be significantly better than the alternative methods available.
NightWatch detects up to 96% of the most dangerous seizures.
Certified medical device
NightWatch was tested and found to be safe in accordance with the European Union Medical Device Regulation and is produced according to the highest quality standards.
An audio and visual alert in the event of a possible epileptic seizure
The alarms can be forwarded to mobile telephones and call systems
Comfortable seamless elastic armband
Ready-to-use, no configuration required
NightWatch can be connected to the internet so that you can obtain a readout of the wearer’s heart rate and motion data. This provides insight into how the night went and helps you better understand why NightWatch gave notifications if any. It eliminates any uncertainty about what happened during the night. In addition, it provides you and your neurologist with a greater insight into the intensity and duration of your seizures. Read the manual to find out how to connect NightWatch to the online portal.
NightWatch is intended for patients, parents, couples and healthcare professionals who are seeking an effective way of being alerted to possible severe nocturnal epileptic seizures in a timely manner.
Parents and caregivers
NightWatch reduces the burden of parents or caregivers by sending a wireless alert in the event of a possible severe nocturnal epileptic seizure. This enables parties to provide quick and adequate aid, reducing the risk of medical complications.
NightWatch is very easy to install and to use at home.
Patients living independently
NightWatch alerts caregivers to possible clinically urgent nocturnal seizures, thus enabling patients to live independently. Caregivers can be alerted to nocturnal epileptic seizures remotely in a timely fashion via a connection to a digital or optional mobile phone call system and provide assistance if necessary.
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 responsible for clients with severe nocturnal epileptic seizures. By connecting the NightWatch to existing medical call systems, it can be easily integrated into existing healthcare processes.
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. Thereby, the partner can quickly take action, if necessary, which may enable both of them to sleep more peacefully.
NightWatch can be connected to various external devices such as medical call systems and mobile phone modules.
Optional mobile phone module
If NightWatch wearer lives independently, there is a special optional mobile phone module that can call up to 5 telephone numbers of selected caregivers in the event of a possible clinically urgent seizure. This module also has an emergency button which the wearer can press themselves if immediate assistance is required.
Medical call systems
The base station is equipped for connection to all medical care systems as standard, so that possible clinically urgent seizures can be reported to nursing providers, such as the night-time care team, immediately.
NightWatch is CE-marked
NightWatch is a CE-marked Class I medical device for the detection of possible clinically urgent epileptic seizures during sleep. Users should carefully read the instructions for use before using the device for the first time.
