Epilepsy Safety Devices
Seizure safety devices can include seizure alert monitoring systems that can detect when a person may be having a seizure and notify someone who can respond. Devices can be used by people of any age. Some systems also record and store seizure data that can be shared with your physician. Seizure alert devices do not prevent, diagnose or treat seizures or epilepsy.
Other devices listed here have been designed to keep a person free from injury in the event of seizure and to help reduce triggers that can lead to seizure activity.

SAMI: The Sleep Activity Monitor
SAMi is a sleep activity monitor for caregivers and individuals who need to watch for abnormal movements at night. During sleep, audio-video information from a remote infrared video camera is sent to an app running on an iOS device such as an iPhone or iPod Touch. The SAMi app records and analyzes the video for unusual activity. When an unusual event is detected, an alarm is sounded, followed by live sound and video from the SAMi network camera. A parent/caregiver can then take any necessary action. Read about SAMi at www.samialert.com
