ABEPI will hold a demonstration of an effective epileptic seizure detection sensor.
The event will take place in Bilbao on September 20 at 6:30 pm at the San Inazio-Ibarrekolanda municipal center.
The sensor has been tested with highly satisfactory results.
With the aim of finding a reliable technological solution to support the detection of nocturnal seizures in patients with epilepsy, the Asociación Bizkaina de Epilepsia Doctora Maribel Forcadas, ABEPI, undertook the task of testing an epilepsy sensor called EPI CARE 3000, distributed in Spain by Grupo Neat. The results of the test were very satisfactory, the equipment detected a total of 22 seizures without giving false positives.
The great success of this test motivated ABEPI's desire to make the equipment known to all those patients or associations interested in learning about and taking advantage of the benefits of this sensor. Therefore, ABEPI, with the collaboration of Grupo Neat, will hold a non-profit demonstration day on Wednesday, September 20, at 6:30 pm, at the San Inazio-Ibarrekolanda municipal center located at number 2 Errekondo Street, on the corner of Mikel Zarate Street. At 5 minutes from Sarriko Metro.
In order to control the capacity, to attend the event, prior registration is required by calling the association's phone number, 636 19 80 28, or writing to email@example.com and providing the name, surname and phone number or email of the person who will attend the event. Registration closes on Monday, September 18 at 11:00.
"The installation of this epilepsy sensor is very simple and its daily use is simplified to the maximum to facilitate the operation of any user. The equipment is well prepared, both for use in homes and for installation in residences, as it has the necessary peripherals to send an alarm remotely, via radio to a pager and/or a monitoring unit or via SMS," ABEPI sources have pointed out.
EPI CARE 3000 is an innovative device of small dimensions, which, unlike other sensors on the market, offers a high degree of sensitivity, allowing it to detect not only the repeated movements caused by a severe seizure, but also the mild seizures that occur during sleep, in cases of nocturnal epilepsies. Because of its high sensitivity and reliability, it is widely recommended for infants, children, young people and adults.
The equipment is manufactured by the Danish company "Danish Care Technology ApS".
