Set, including the newest bed sensor (white)
The Emfit tonic-clonic seizure monitor consists of two main components; a flexible and durable bed sensor (L-4060SLC = newest model) placed under the mattress and a bed-side monitor (1090) with sophisticated embedded software. Together they detect the micro-movements of a person lying on the bed - even the heart beat and breathing, and the faster movements such as muscle spasms when person has a tonic-clonic seizure. There are no particular weight limits; sensitivity can be adjusted for child 2-12 years, adolescent 12-21 years, or adult.
The monitor can be placed next to the bed or on the wall using the included fastening bracket. It is operated with 2 pcs AA size 1,5 V batteries or optionale power suply
Notices Fast Movements as a Possible Tonic-Clonic Seizure
When movements on the bed are faster than normal movements like turning, the monitor detects this as the clonic-phase of tonic-clonic seizure. The notification triggers if the faster movements continue for longer than the preset delay. The delay can be set to 10, 13, 16 or 20 seconds.
The movements lower frequency threshold is set to 3 Hz. We have found this to reduce false positive notifications significantly. Newest embedded software features also improved noise signal filtering to minimize external disturbances, for example air-conditioning causing false presence detection.
The monitor has an audible alarm with adjustable volume and a dry-contact output (NO and NC) for connection to wireless transmitter, nurse call system or care-phone.
