Why is FDA clearance important?

Empatica is proud to have received FDA-clearance for EpiMonitor.

The clearance process for medical devices involves an extensive and independent review of the clinical data showing that a device is safe and effective, as well as an assessment of testing related to usability and cybersecurity.

Unlike consumer devices offering seizure detection apps, EpiMonitor has undergone rigorous validation and testing, demonstrating a 98% detection accuracy against the gold standard of hospital-based EEG measurement.

Take control of your epilepsy with your complete companion for life

Providing peace of mind with automated seizure alerts, self-triggered alerts, and an easy-to-use seizure diary for those living with epilepsy and their loved ones. And with up to 7 days battery life, you can rest assured that EpiMonitor will be there for you during emergencies, while giving you the freedom you want to enjoy life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does EpiMonitor work?

When the EpiMonitor algorithm detects unusual patterns that may be associated with generalized tonic-clonic seizures lasting longer than 20 seconds, it will communicate with the companion EpiMonitor App installed on the user’s dedicated smartphone to alert active caregivers with a phone call and a text message. It is designed to expedite assistance when a seizure occurs.

For the EpiMonitor system to function as designed, watch wearers are required to have a compatible smartphone with Bluetooth and internet connectivity. The phone needs to be kept within 15 feet of the EmbracePlus watch for alerts to be sent.

What’s the minimum age to use EpiMonitor?

The EpiMonitor system is FDA-cleared for adults and children ages 6 and up. Use in children younger than 6 should be evaluated by a clinician on a case-by-case basis.

How can I purchase EpiMonitor?

EpiMonitor is available for purchase on our Online Store.

What type of seizures is EpiMonitor able to detect?

The EpiMonitor algorithm is designed to detect unusual patterns associated with generalized tonic-clonic seizures lasting 20 seconds or longer. It is not designed to detect seizures that do not generate movements such as complex partial seizures, absence seizures or non-convulsive seizures. However, you can manually add other types of seizures to the EpiMonitor App to keep track of all seizure events.

Is a prescription needed to purchase the EpiMonitor?

EpiMonitor is a medical product and customers who purchase and use it within the US territories will be required to upload a valid prescription issued by a US doctor or healthcare practitioner before we can ship the device to them.
