Description

Help when you need it, for those with seizure disorders. SeizAlarm is a user-friendly iPhone and Apple Watch app which allows those with epilepsy and other seizure disorders to alert emergency contacts when they need help*. Features: - Seizure detection. Seizure-like detection is done via the motion sensors on the iPhone and/or motion sensors or heart rate sensor on the Apple Watch. Sensitivity controls allow you to set customized settings specific to you. When a potential seizure is detected, emergency contacts will automatically be contacted via multiple channels (text message, phone call, and email). - Send immediate help requests manually to emergency contacts. - Also available is a manually activated time delayed help request feature (via the "Time Delayed Help" button) that is helpful for those that have localized seizures (auras) that may turn into generalized tonic-clonic seizures. You are able to custom set the delay time in the settings. When a seizure warning is initiated you will see a countdown which can be extended via the press of a button. If you end up becoming unresponsive due to a seizure then once the timer ends a help request will be sent. - When a help request is sent your contacts will be contacted with GPS coordinates (if available), so they know exactly where you are. - You can are also able to track your seizure events with robust logging features. A log dashboard gives you a high-level view of past events. You can also export reports to provide to your doctor. - SeizAlarm also supports multiple emergency contact support, so more than one person can be contacted when you need help. - Optional audible siren and/or custom typed message that plays if a help request is sent. - International phone number support for emergency contact(s). Help is just a button press away. Start taking back your independence today. Please give us feedback on how the seizure detection is working for you. The more feedback we receive will provide us the information we need to improve detection and reduce false alarms in future versions. If you have any questions or have feedback, please contact us at: contact@seizalarm.com. We want to make SeizAlarm the best that it can be, so feedback from our users is very important to us. NOTES: - Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. - Recommended placement of the iPhone for seizure detection is on the arm using an arm band. - Long use of Watch based seizure-like motion and elevated heart rate detection may dramatically decrease watch battery life. *New accounts receive a 2 week trial of the "Alerts" service which allows the user to manually or automatically (via seizure-like motion detection) request help from emergency contacts. Once the trial ends, the user must subscribe to the "Alerts" service to continue to have the ability to request help. The "Alerts" service is an auto-renewing cost of $14.99/month or $149.99/year. * Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period * The payment will be charged to the user's iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. The account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal. * Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase. * No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during the active subscription period. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication. The robust seizure log features require no subscription.

    I can’t find the app on my watch or see how to turn on the motion detection on the watch itself.

    I’ve had 14 grand mal seizures in the last 16 years of my 34-year life, which is not too many compared to some of the more unfortunate amongst us. Living with a seizure disorder is not easy—my neurologist looked at me point blank the other day and said, “seizures kill people”— but if you, like me, suffer from a seizure disorder, there are ways to protect yourself. 1) Sleep well. And I mean as much as you can. 2) Exercise. A lot, get your blood moving, more oxygen may cause a fire, but not in your brain. 3) Use the SeizAlarm app. I’ve been a loyal user for several months now. It’s quite discreet, no one needs to know you use it, and fully automated. I use it with the Apple Watch, which is waterproof so it goes in the shower with me. I really like that it’s on a timer, so you have a minute-and-a-half to turn off any outgoing help messages, before the system kicks in and texts/calls/emails (your choice) anyone on your contact list. There’s also the “get help immediately” button, in case you feel an aura. Honestly, I think people without seizure disorders could use that as a panic button or emergency button, but that’s getting off-topic. Anyway, thanks SeizAlarm, not only for me, but for the sense of security it’s given my family too! Cheers, Allan H

    I was going to use this, and filled everything out and used it for a few minutes. Then I deleted it. I tried looking to see about unsubscribing, and I couldn’t find anything. If I get charged, I will be very upset.
  • Danger!

    This app is NOT cleared by FDA and it falsely claims seizure detection when it has not been able to demonstrate safety of use or accuracy of detection to the FDA. There are two proven safe and accurate seizure alerting devices on the market, Embrace by Empatica and Speac by Brain Sentinel. While no alerting device is 100% perfect, The FDA has done MUCH more extensive testing than any person reporting a review, who may be largely employees of SeizAlarm. FDA clearance reports are publicly available. Also the other devices have MUCH better battery life and many other nice features. Please do not trust your life to this non-validated device!

    I was really excited to get this app. Unfortunately when I turn on the monitor on my watch it does not able to view my home screen. The only thing that will show when I turn my watch up to look at the time is the seizure app screen. I have not been able to fix this issue. The only way to get my Watch to work normally is to turn off the monitor. That kind of defeated the purpose. I like my watch and would like to use it as well as the app any feedback would be wonderful I hate to have to not use it
  • Watch detects but not communicating

    I’ll change my review but there isn’t a phone number to call and it’s kind of an important app for people, you would think you could talk to someone to help you. My watch is registering my seizures but it’s not communicating to my caregivers and they aren’t showing on the phone either. I live alone and specifically bought the watch and the app instead of empatica watch, but I’m giving this about another month and I’m going to another product. When i came out of my seizure and stopped the watch from communicating, that’s when my caregivers finally found out I had a seizure, 20 minutes too late, I then had a second seizure 20 minutes later, more of the same.
  • Very interested in buying this cool app

    I like what I’ve seen in the screenshots and read in the reviews. The only drawback to buying this app are how people says it drains your battery. I am pretty active and taking the transit system from place to place. I would hate to purchase this app and have it kill my battery while I’m out and God forbid, I seize with no way to alert any of my contacts. My deciding factor to purchasing this app is when will this issue be fixed?

    This app is AMAZING! I bought this app for my son who is non-verbal and has epilepsy. His seizures vary between convulsive to tonic so the heart rate feature is exactly what we needed. This app alerts me via phone calls and texts (user defined) to a change in his heart rate, either high or low (user defined limits) and/or convulsive movements recorded on his Apple Watch. This app is peace of mind for every parent whose child has seizures! The cost is more than reasonable for the services it provides! I purchased the whole year as I am that confident that it fit our needs. Thank you for an amazing app. Here’s to a full nights sleep.
  • Bought it 1 day before a seizure

    My wife was skeptical and we were deciding between this and a competitor but so glad we went with this. I bought an Apple Watch specifically to help if I had a seizure alone and the next day I did. My wife was alerted right away and called me and came right home. This app and watch give me confidence that is hard to come by with epilepsy. Any doubts that I had that it wouldn’t catch my seizures is gone. Never will I be without it again. It does drain the battery pretty fast but it shows exactly where you are via GPS which is crucial so that will improve with future Apple Watch versions and possibly updates. Thanks Seizalarm!!!!!
