What is a False Alarm?


Your Embrace watch is optimized to detect unusual events such as convulsive seizures . Some types of activity that you engage in during the day may seem like a seizure to the Embrace when they are really not. This is called a “false alarm”. Some examples of activities that could cause a false alarm include, but are not limited to:

- On the road: riding a car or  bike, on a bumpy road surface.

- In the bathroom: brushing your teeth

- In the kitchen: grating cheese, beating eggs, or chopping vegetables.

To reduce the number of false alarms, we suggest wearing Embrace on the non-dominant wrist, as long as convulsive movement is generated there.
