ABEPI conducted a demonstration session of this sensor.
With the objective of finding a reliable technological solution to support the nocturnal convulsive seizures of patients with epilepsy, the “Biscayan Association of Epilepsy Doctor Maribel Forcadas”, (ABEPI, by its acronym in Spanish), tested the epilepsy sensor EPI CARE 3000, distributed in Spain by Neat Group. The results of the test were very satisfactory; the device detected 22 crises without giving false positives.
The great success of this test motivated the desire of ABEPI to show this sensor to all those patients or associations interested in knowing and taking advantage of its benefits.
Therefore, ABEPI, with the collaboration of Neat Group held a non-profit demonstration day for dozens of attendees, on Wednesday, September 20, at 6:30 pm, in the municipal center of San Inazio-Ibarrekolanda.
The presentation and organization of the event was carried out by Juanma Puente, President of ABEPI, who presented the EPI CARE 3000 equipment and the successful results obtained during the month that they were testing it.
He also showed all the statistics of the tests and explained the configuration and operation of the device through two videos that he recorded specifically for the event.
“The installation of this epilepsy sensor is very simple and its daily use is simplified to the maximum to facilitate the operation of any user. The sensor is well prepared, both for use in homes and for installation in nursing homes, as it has the necessary peripherals to send a remote alarm, via radio to a pager and / or a monitoring unit or via SMS”, said Juanma Puente, who, in addition to being the president of ABEPI, is also the father of a patient who suffers epilepsy and participated in the test.
During the question session, Santiago Morales, KAM of the Commercial Department of Neat Group, clarified the doubts made by the attendees concerning the operation, coverage, warranty and prices of the sensor.
EPI CARE 3000 is an innovative small-sized device that unlike other sensors on the market, offers a high degree of sensitivity, it can detect not only the repeated movements resulting from severe convulsion, but also detects the soft convulsions that occur during sleep, in cases of nocturnal epilepsy. Because of its high sensitivity and reliability, the bed sensor is widely recommended for infants, children, youth and adults.
The equipment is manufactured by the Danish company “Danish Care Technology ApS” and sold in several countries by Neat Group.For further information about Epi-Care 3000 or other products and services from Neat Group, please do not hesitate to contact us.
