Epilepsy is one of the diseases that is not enough, which poses a mortal danger to humans, so it is also accompanied by attacks that recur regularly and can occur at any moment. Therefore, a person suffering from epilepsy, it is important to know about the approach of the attack in advance. And the company Empatica recently introduced a smart watch that will warn people about the approaching attack.

Smart watches Embrace, in addition to the usual medical indicators like heart rate and respiratory rate monitor for indicators of stress, the impact on the human condition of physical activity and the state of the sleep phases. On the basis of the data clock pre-warn people about the approaching attack, and also notify his parents, guardians, and other people whom you specify as trusted.

For the development of the device meets MIT Professor Rosalind Picard, who in 2011, working in the company there's affectiva, has released a device, Q-sensor, which reacted to emotional arousal and thus could also be used to prevent attacks of epilepsy. According to one of the founders of the company Empatica Matteo Lai,

"There are many people with epilepsy that hide it. According to statistics, every 26 people in certain periods of his life he suffered from bouts of epilepsy. And 1% of the population living with epilepsy all my life. Many people often do not want to advertise the disease, so it was important to create a device that would betray his mission and it would be convenient to use".
