How the Alert Seizure Detection Works

Seizure Detection
1. Seizure Detection
Embrace continuously collects your physiological data via its sensors. The data are analyzed in real-time using Embrace’s advanced machine learning, to try to detect unusual events like convulsive seizures.
Alert Dispatching
2. Alert Dispatching
The Alert App is connected to your Embrace via Bluetooth®, and is automatically activated when Embrace detects a convulsive seizure. The App will send an alert notification (SMS and phone call) to your Caregivers using the smartphone’s cellular data or Wi-Fi connection.
Caregiver Alert
3. Caregiver Alert
The Embrace Alert System notifies your Caregivers simultaneously. Caregivers only need a phone with cellular signal to receive these notifications, no smartphone required.
Important: Both Bluetooth® and either an Internet or cellular data connection are necessary for the Alert App to send calls and SMS when Embrace detects a convulsive seizure

How Embrace is Changing Lives for its Users

United States
"The Embrace has literally changed my life so drastically that I now consider myself free from the restraints of a constant caretaker. It has given me a reason to look forward to life and have hope."
United Kingdom
"As a mum of two children, the Embrace puts my mind at rest knowing that if I were to have a seizure my children wouldn't be alone dealing with it for too long, help would arrive fairly quickly :)."
"I wear my Embrace 24/7. Knowing that if I have a seizure my family will be notified has lowered my anxiety and given me so much confidence."
Important: We do not guarantee that Embrace and the Alert App will detect every single seizure and deliver alerts accordingly. They are not meant to substitute your current seizure monitoring practices, but rather to serve as a supplement in expediting first-response time.  Show More Show Less
Embrace is a medical device in Europe, under the Directive 93/42/CEE annex II, UNI CEI EN ISO 13485:2012, for convulsive seizure detection and alert delivery. Embrace is not yet a medical device in United States: it is an investigational device and you should not alter your current seizure monitoring practices while using it. For users in the United States to send Seizure Alerts, you must be enrolled in Empatica’s Clinical Trial which is investigating improvements for convulsive seizure detection in the real world.

Clinical Trial: Advancing discoveries in epilepsy research

The Embrace is not yet a medical device in the United States. The Alert App is reserved only for the participants in our clinical trial, which will test how Embrace and the Empatica apps work for convulsive seizure monitoring and detection in both clinical and home settings.
