Epileptic patients live with a fear of sudden death that could happen after a seizure. Having the best apps for people with epileptic seizures can help detect seizures early and even prevent them.
The cause for epilepsy is still unknown and cannot be prevented, but the seizures can be. At least 1 in every 1000 epileptics die after a seizure. Such deaths can be prevented by understanding the importance of detecting seizures early. Seizures are associated with a ‘trigger’ and if you can avoid or modify those triggers, seizures can be prevented. Many devices are used for early detection and monitoring of seizures. Wearables help epileptic patients be productive in their daily life, stay healthy, and feel safe. Fortunately, with the development of several devices in today's world, we have many options to help with detection.
Ideally, an epileptic should not be left unattended, but since it is impractical, we can constantly monitor for potential signs using tracking devices for seizures. Since seizures can get triggered even during sleep, it is imperative to have a wearable tracking device for detecting it. The FDA has approved the use of Embrace smartwatches that use machine learning to detect the onset of seizures and alert caregivers. Fitbit and Apple watch also track and monitor epileptic behavior, seizures and record the time, date, and intensity of the incident.
Finally, it is essential for epileptics and their caregivers to install mobile apps that help with detecting and monitoring epileptic behaviour. Some devices use remote cameras to detect unusual movement in patients. Seizure Tracker and other apps to detect seizures can be lifesavers. They are available for free or a fee on iPhone and Android. No fee is big to pay to save a life.
