Help when you need it, for those with seizure disorders. SeizAlarm is a user-friendly iPhone and Apple Watch app which allows those with epilepsy and other seizure disorders to alert emergency contacts when they need help*. Features: - Seizure detection. Seizure-like detection is done via the motion sensors on the iPhone and/or motion sensors or heart rate sensor on the Apple Watch. Sensitivity controls allow you to set customized settings specific to you. When a potential seizure is detected, emergency contacts will automatically be contacted via multiple channels (text message, phone call and email). - Send immediate help requests manually to emergency contacts. - There is also a manually activated time delayed help request feature (via the "Time Delayed Help" button) that is helpful for those that have localized seizures (auras) that may turn into generalized tonic-clonic seizures. You are able to custom set the delay time in the settings. When a seizure warning is initiated you will see a countdown which can be extended via the press of a button. If you end up becoming unresponsive due to a seizure then once the timer ends a help request will be sent. - When a help request is sent your contacts will be contacted with GPS coordinates (if available), so they know exactly where you are. - You can are also able to track your seizure events with robust logging features. A log dashboard gives you a high level view of past events. You can also export reports to provide to your doctor. - SeizAlarm also supports multiple emergency contact support, so more than one person can be contacted when you need help. - Optional audible siren and/or custom typed message that plays if a help request is sent. - International phone number support for emergency contact(s). Help is just a button press away. Start taking back your independence today. Please give us feedback on how the seizure detection is working for you. The more feedback we receive will provide us the information we need to improve detection and reduce false alarms in future versions. If you have any questions or have feedback, please contact us at: We want to make SeizAlarm the best that it can be, so feedback from our users is very important to us. NOTES: - Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. - Recommended placement of the iPhone for seizure detection is on the arm using an arm band. - Long use of Watch based seizure-like motion and elevated heart rate detection may dramatically decrease watch battery life. *New accounts receive a 2 week trial of the "Alerts" service which which allows the user to manually or automatically (via seizure-like motion detection) request help from emergency contacts. Once the trial ends, the user must subscribe to the "Alerts" service to continue to have the ability to request help. The "Alerts" service is an auto-renewing cost of $14.99/month or $149.99/year. * Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period * The payment will be charged to the user's iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal. * Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase. * No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication. The robust seizure log features require no subscription.

  • Feed back!

    By rogerthebutcher
    I was really excited to get this app. Unfortunately when I turn on the monitor on my watch it does not able to view my home screen. The only thing that will show when I turn my watch up to look at the time is the seizure app screen. I have not been able to fix this issue. The only way to get my Watch to work normally is to turn off the monitor. That kind of defeated the purpose. I like my watch and would like to use it as well as the app any feedback would be wonderful I hate to have to not use it
  • Watch detects but not communicating

    By Dmartinez1990
    I’ll change my review but there isn’t a phone number to call and it’s kind of an important app for people, you would think you could talk to someone to help you. My watch is registering my seizures but it’s not communicating to my caregivers and they aren’t showing on the phone either. I live alone and specifically bought the watch and the app instead of empatica watch, but I’m giving this about another month and I’m going to another product. When i came out of my seizure and stopped the watch from communicating, that’s when my caregivers finally found out I had a seizure, 20 minutes too late, I then had a second seizure 20 minutes later, more of the same.
  • Very interested in buying this cool app

    By Rick Pompa
    I like what I’ve seen in the screenshots and read in the reviews. The only drawback to buying this app are how people says it drains your battery. I am pretty active and taking the transit system from place to place. I would hate to purchase this app and have it kill my battery while I’m out and God forbid, I seize with no way to alert any of my contacts. My deciding factor to purchasing this app is when will this issue be fixed?
  • Bad app

    Goes off when I don’t have a seizure
  • A true lifesaver!

    By Sue Byczko
    This app is AMAZING! I bought this app for my son who is non-verbal and has epilepsy. His seizures vary between convulsive to tonic so the heart rate feature is exactly what we needed. This app alerts me via phone calls and texts (user defined) to a change in his heart rate, either high or low (user defined limits) and/or convulsive movements recorded on his Apple Watch. This app is peace of mind for every parent whose child has seizures! The cost is more than reasonable for the services it provides! I purchased the whole year as I am that confident that it fit our needs. Thank you for an amazing app. Here’s to a full nights sleep.
  • Bought it 1 day before a seizure

    By Bizco17
    My wife was skeptical and we were deciding between this and a competitor but so glad we went with this. I bought an Apple Watch specifically to help if I had a seizure alone and the next day I did. My wife was alerted right away and called me and came right home. This app and watch give me confidence that is hard to come by with epilepsy. Any doubts that I had that it wouldn’t catch my seizures is gone. Never will I be without it again. It does drain the battery pretty fast but it shows exactly where you are via GPS which is crucial so that will improve with future Apple Watch versions and possibly updates. Thanks Seizalarm!!!!!
  • Battery life

    By sollife20
    I was excited to get this app for my seizures! But I have nocturnal seizures and the watch dies even if fully charged when I go to sleep. I wake up and the watch is off. So this is useless since my seizures happen while I sleep! Will you be able to fix this problem!! I really hope you can. If not I will probably return the watch!
  • Title

    By Kara_Williamson
    It doesn’t alert my I.C.E. Contact or track my seizures at all when the app’s not open
  • Zero stars

    By This is fun, fun, fun!
    If I could give this app zero stars I would. This is a waste of money. My series 3 Apple Watch is just over a month old and the head of the development team Bryan is trying to convince me that not using my watch for anything other than the app and the battery draining from 100% to 5% in 4 hours is normal and told me I just need to get a newer watch and is blaming the battery issue on Apple. What a waste of money. During the 4 hour time period the app goes offline repeatedly and randomly.
  • Don’t bother purchasing this app

    By Themusicman08
    So I am a bit confused when it comes to this application and looking at all that it does with in the App Store and it’s so called description of the app. When you get the app, it says that it’s free. When you sign up, you better look at the FinePrint especially those who use voiceover. It informs you that you get a two week free trial of the application and then have to pay for it. Why in the world would you get an app that supposed to be free and then turn around and pay for it? There should be two versions of the app. There should be a free version with in app purchases, then there should be a paid version of the application. I am very dissatisfied at what the developer is trying to do. You’re trying to get money for a free app and in the sign-up process you’re basically scamming people. In my opinion, this is not good business. Especially for those who have seizure disorders.
