Maintain an accurate seizure diary
Seizures detected by Embrace are automatically logged, and you can add any others you may experience. Add notes to each seizure, such as how you were feeling and what you were doing before it occurred.
Improved Seizure Counts
Self-reported seizures tend to be incomplete and inaccurate.
Research has shown that, when recording seizures themselves, patients failed to document 55.5% of all recorded seizures1. FDA-cleared devices like Embrace have very high sensitivity, ensuring they automatically detect and log possible generalized tonic-clonic seizures, including nocturnal activity, with accuracy2, 3.
Discover insights about your rest
Get detailed stats such as duration, interruptions, turns, and tosses. Advanced analysis lets you see how efficient your night's rest was, and compare it with your weekly average to identify patterns.
Why is rest analysis important?
The Mate App provides an in-depth analysis of your rest including duration, efficiency, and fragmentation.
A good night’s sleep plays a crucial role in a person’s overall health, even more so with epilepsy. Literature shows that the quantity and quality of rest may have an impact on seizures in various ways4. When a person sleeps, the brain’s electrical and hormonal activity changes, meaning seizures can be more likely to happen while falling asleep or when one is about to wake up5, 6. Though 7 to 8 hours of sleep is considered ideal, the quality of rest is more important7.
Keep track of how much you move
Automatic activity recognition distinguishes between running, walking, and sport. You can also see the intensity of your physical activity and stats such as duration, distance, steps, and total active time.
Why is tracking physical activity important for epilepsy?
Mate enables you to see overall seizure frequency alongside your physical activity.
Being active has its own health benefits, improving a person’s overall fitness and helps relieve stress. Literature shows that for some people, overall well-being can help reduce seizure frequency6. While physical activity can help a person feel good, a lack of it on the other hand, can be linked to increased depression and anxiety7, 8.
