The SeizureLink algorithm is muscle activated, not motion activated. It recognizes an electrical muscle signal. Since we recognize this signal on the surface of your skin, it is more properly known as surface electromyography, or sEMG. Because it is recognizing sustained tonic muscle signals, the SeizureLink algorithm can sense when the muscle clenches and tightens. And it does it fast — on an average of 9 seconds versus 30 seconds or more for other alerting watches and devices that rely on waiting for the body to shake. Measuring sEMG is what accounts for its high accuracy of 94%, low false alarm rate of 0.67 per day and only 1 false alarm per 82 nights.* The Monitor alarms and sends out a real-time alert to the app on a mobile device. This alert goes out to your selected caregivers so that you can get help as soon as possible. The event gets logged into a seizure diary on your phone so that you can add details to it later and share with your caregivers.

The SeizureLink algorithm sends alerts when it recognizes sustained tonic muscle activity that lasts for at least 9 seconds. The Monitor sends alerts to caregivers when it senses prolonged tonic-muscle activity.
The SeizureLink Monitor is discreet and durable. It weighs only one ounce and it’s roughly the size of a sugar packet. Its dimensions are 2.5 inches tall, 1.7 inches in width and a depth of 0.6 inches. It can be worn by children with an arm circumference of at least 6 inches.
The Reservation List Starter Kit for the SeizureLink System is $499. Electrode patch subscriptions start at as low as $1.17 per day. Go here for more info on pricing.
The SeizureLink algorithm uses surface electromyography, or sEMG, which is the most accurate and fastest way to know when a sustained tonic muscle contraction occurs. What makes it unique is that it is muscle activated - the SeizureLink algorithm can sense when the muscle clenches and tightens during tonic muscle activity. It’s also different because it’s the fastest alerting system- on average, alerting Caregivers within 9 -12 seconds versus 30 seconds or more for motion devices that rely on waiting for the muscles to shake.
Yes. sEMG is a muscle signal. To recognize it accurately, the SeizureLink Monitor must be placed on the biceps. For proper placement and alerting, it must be placed right on top of what is called the ¨belly¨ of the biceps.

While there is no specific age for wearers of the SeizureLink System, your arm must have a circumference of at least 5 to 6 inches.
- Out of Range
- Loose Electrode
- Low Battery notification so you know when it’s time to swap out the battery. The battery may be changed while the SeizureLink unit is on the biceps.
- Wearer connection status on the Caregiver App so you know if your Hero is on the System and linked or not.
It’s important to know that the Monitor connects to the Wearer’s app via a Bluetooth connection. Both the Wearer and Caregiver’s phones must be connected to the internet either via a cell phone or a solid internet connection. After the SeizureLink Monitor alerts to an event with lights and an audible alarm, if the Monitor is connected to the wearer’s phone via Bluetooth, the phone app activates the alerts on the wearer's mobile device. If the Wearer’s cell phone is connected to the internet, the Caregiver’s mobile device will activate with a phone call and App alerts. Remember both an active Bluetooth connection and internet connections must be on to transmit an alert from the Wearer’s Monitor to the Caregiver’s App.
Zero. There is no additional charge for monitoring. Alerts, notifications, and Seizure Diary Reports are included at no additional charge.
After the Monitor alerts with lights and an audible alarm, the SeizureLink System uses Bluetooth connectivity to send alerts to Caregivers via the smartphone app. The mobile app connects you to Caregivers, manages your seizure diary, creates reports, and includes location- based services.
The SeizureLink app Works on Android devices with 5.0 Lollipop (API level 21) and iOS devices with 10.0 or later. It works on both smartphones and tablets. Bluetooth and internet connection are required for the app to function and the app must remain open and running in the background on the wearer's mobile device. Internet can be wi-fi or cellular.
The Bluetooth range is 50 yards in an open space. If the SeizureLink Alerting System is out of Bluetooth range, an alert will sound on the SeizureLink App on the Hero’s mobile device, and real-time alerting will be interrupted.
No. The SeizureLink System is not a medical device, nor is it cleared by the FDA for medical device application. It is not cleared to monitor, treat, diagnose, or prevent a medical condition, nor is it intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease.
