Embrace is optimized to detect movement patterns and autonomic arousal lasting at least 20 seconds. These characteristics are generally associated with convulsive or tonic-clonic seizures.
At the moment, Embrace is not designed to alert for other types of seizures, such as complex partial, absence, or other non-convulsive seizure types, as they usually do not generate any convulsive movement while the movement signature of convulsions takes precedence in our algorithm.
This page could help you understand the different kinds of seizures.
In any case, we highly encourage you to consult your doctor to determine if Embrace is a good fit for you. For a list of topics that you might want to discuss with them, please check out this article: Consulting your doctor about Embrace.
We’ve developed an additional feature called Rest Mode which is meant to be used during sleep or periods of rest. It is a more sensitive version of our algorithm, designed to catch milder convulsive activity.
In the US, Rest Mode is set as the default mode as it has been cleared by the FDA, and it's included in every subscription plan. Turning off Rest Mode means that you will be using a version of the device that hasn’t been FDA-cleared. For all the other countries, this feature is only available in our Standard and Plus subscription plans.
Important to know
Embrace cannot predict or prevent seizures.
We cannot guarantee that Embrace will detect every single seizure. It is not meant to substitute your current seizure monitoring practices, but rather to serve as a supplement in expediting first-response time. It is important not to alter or reduce seizure management practices when using Embrace.
