Seizure detection for nocturnal epilepsy
Warns caregivers remotely in the event of epileptic seizures during sleep. Conceived by Dutch neurologists and recommended by patients.
The NightWatch consists of a comfortable wireless armband that closely monitors heart rate and motion while the wearer is lying in bed.
When the NightWatch detects a potentially severe seizure, a warning is transmitted to a caregiver via a wireless signal to the armband’s corresponding base station.
Precise and versatile
The NightWatch detects various types of seizures with a high level of precision, including:
Clustered myoclonic seizures
Clinically proven effective
The 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.
The NightWatch detects up to 96% of the most dangerous seizures.
Certified medical device
The 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 an epileptic seizure
The alarms can be forwarded to mobile telephones and call systems
Comfortable seamless elastic armband
Ready-to-use, no configuration required
The 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 the 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 the NightWatch to the online portal.
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 and caregivers
The NightWatch reduces the burden of parents or caregivers by sending a wireless alert in the event of a severe nocturnal epileptic seizure. This enables parties to provide quick and adequate aid, reducing the risk of medical complications.
The NightWatch detects the majority of clinically urgent epileptic seizures at an early stage. It improves 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.
Patients living independently
The NightWatch alerts caregivers to 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.
The NightWatch can be connected to various external devices such as medical call systems and mobile phone modules.
Optional mobile phone module
If the 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 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 clinically urgent seizures can be reported to nursing providers, such as the night-time care team, immediately.
The NightWatch is very easy to install and to use at home.
