We understand the importance in making sure that Embrace is the right device for your child's needs. Here you can find answers to the most common questions asked by parents:
Is it suitable for my child?
The Embrace2 has been FDA-cleared for children ages 6 and up. We highly encourage you to consult your doctor to determine if Embrace is right for the needs of your child. If your child is younger than 6, they'll need a prescription from their doctor for off-label use.
Will the wristband fit?
Our Stretchable band fits wrists 13 to 25 cm (about 6 to 10 inches) in circumference, and is usually the preferred option for children. The Embrace should fit snugly, but not too tight.
Does my child need a smartphone?
We highly recommend that your child has a dedicated smartphone with Bluetooth and Internet connection. This is because Embrace needs to be within Bluetooth range (about 30 feet or 10 meters) of the smartphone at all times in order to send Alerts when it detects a possible tonic-clonic seizure.
It can be tricky to keep Embrace within the Bluetooth range of the paired smartphone when the Embrace user is a young child. We suggest using a running belt to hold the smartphone to make sure that the two devices are always within range.
What about school?
It is important that teachers know what Embrace does and that your child will always have to have their phone with them. Here you can find a nice article with some useful tips on how to use Embrace at school.
