SeizAlarm Version 3.0 Can Now Detect Seizures With The Apple WatchJune 9, 2017
Orlando, Florida – SeizAlarm, LLC is proud to announce the release of SeizAlarm: Seizure Detection 3.0, an update to the company’s popular medical app developed exclusively for iPhone and Apple Watch devices. SeizAlarm is the only iOS application available that does seizure detection with native Apple devices. Detection is much more accurate and convenient now that detection can now be done with the Apple Watch. When a help request is sent to the user’s caregivers they will receive a text, email and a phone call notifying them about the request. The user’s GPS coordinates will also be sent so they know exactly where the user is located.
The app’s “Delayed Help” also sets the app apart from other help request applications. This feature can be used for those that frequently have auras (simple-partial seizures) that don’t always lead to a convulsive grand mal seizure. The “Delayed Help” allows the user to start a time delayed help request. Once initiated, a timer counts down the customizable delay and the user is able to extend the time on the timer if needed or cancel the request. This means that the user can initiate the request and not worry about contacting someone. SeizAlarm also allows users to send immediate help requests. Users are able to track seizure events with robust logging features. SeizAlarm also supports multiple emergency contacts, so more than one person can be contacted when help is needed.
“As an epileptic myself, I wanted to create an app that I could use to request help if I need it,” said Greg Pabst, Co-Founder of SeizAlarm. “Having this functionality brings me peace of mind and helps me feel more secure in my independence.”
Version 3.0 now utilizes the Apple Watch sensors (motion and heart rate) to initiate help requests. This includes Watch based seizure-like motion and elevated heart rate detection support. The app also sports larger help request buttons on the iPhone and Watch, with Watch OS3 performance and stability improvements, as well as miscellaneous user interface refinements and bug fixes.
Server monitoring has been added to help ensure there is no disconnection between the app and help request servers. When enabled, if the user has detection active on the Watch and the server looses connection, then they will be notified. This is added insurance to make users feel safer that everything is working properly.
