The FDA has cleared Empatica’s seizure-detecting wearable, called Embrace, for epilepsy patients.

"Wearable technologies like Embrace are likely to become more ...important in the care of our patients," says Dr. Jean-Philippe Langevin, Director of Restorative Neurosurgery at #PacificMovement Disorders Center.

"As the devices improve in accuracy, they will play a critical role by providing accurate information to the clinicians. For example, in the case of epilepsy, neurologists will be provided with an accurate seizure log both in terms of frequency and distribution throughout the day. This information will permit better decision-making in terms of medication administration: the physician can track the response to a medication to know if it works at reducing seizures over time. In addition, the distribution of seizures over the day will allow to determine the optimal timing of administration."

Type 1 Diabetes can sometimes become life threatening when seemingly harmless situations occur, such as having a cold, trying a new medication, or going through puberty / menopause. It can be especially risky for those who also have Type 2 diabetes or other health conditions that influence blood sugars. It can be scary every day, so compassion, trust and support are important to offer anyone with Type 1 Diabetes!
