A wearable capable of detecting epileptic seizures before they happen.

Scientific innovations won’t stop amazing me… Once again a new device has outreached what I thought was possible.

Embrace, a new smartwatch, can also detect if you’re about to have an epileptic seizure and alert your family and friends.

On top of the usual activity tracking, this elegant smartwatch could save the life of people with epilepsy by vibrating with increasing strength when it detects stress levels rising. People can then calm down to prevent an attack.

It can track arousal, stress, sleep and physical activity thanks to its accelerometer, temperature and electrodermal sensors.

If you want to know more, watch the video below:

 

In pre-order until December 23, for one Embrace bought, one will be offered to a child who can’t afford it (as if you needed another reason to support the campaign!). Visit www.igg.me/at/embrace to see the Indiegogo campaign or empatica.com to see the product website!
