How Embrace is Changing Life for its Users

"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."
ClairUnited 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."
"Life before the #EmbraceWatch was stressful. Now, if Gianna has a seizure, I will know as soon as it happens, along with her other Caregivers, and can make arrangements for whoever is closest to her to go help."
"My stress level has gone way down and I sleep better now knowing that my son Noah, born with Hydrocephalus, has the #EmbraceWatch."
"I am most positive that the Embrace saved my life. When my mom was notified that I needed help, I had blankets and pillows over my head. #ForeverGrateful"
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.

Which phones and tablets do the Embrace Apps work with?

Any iOS device supporting Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE / 4.0 / Bluetooth Smart) that can run iOS 9.3.5 or higher.

Any Android devices running Android version 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher, as long as they support Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE / 4.0 / Bluetooth Smart)

We do not support Windows and BlackBerry phones.

Can Embrace detect any type of seizure?

The machine learning algorithms running in the Embrace are trained on generalized convulsive seizures. Embrace is optimized to detect events that involve both unusual motor activity and autonomic activation.

Complex partial seizures usually do not generate convulsions, so we would not expect Embrace to detect these types of seizures.

Absence seizures do not generate significant autonomic or motion responses, therefore we would not expect Embrace to detect these seizures.

How does the Embrace work?

Embrace needs to be paired with a compatible smartphone with Internet access and always stay within its Bluetooth® range.

The paired phone must remain in close proximity to the individual wearing the Embrace (under ~10m or 30 feet). Only in this case will it be able to send alert calls/SMS to the active caregivers when Embrace detects a convulsive seizure.

How does the Embrace Alert System work?

Embrace sends data to the paired smartphone via Bluetooth®, and from the smartphone to Empatica’s servers via Internet connection. When Embrace detects a possible convulsive seizure, it will send Alert calls and SMS to the caregiver’s phones. In order to do this, Embrace must be within Bluetooth range (10m/30 ft) of it’s paired phone.
