Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain which causes epileptic seizures. When someone has epilepsy, it means they have a tendency to have epileptic seizures.

Seizures are bursts of electrical activity in the brain and it can start at any age causing a number of different symptoms. Some types of epilepsy last for a limited time and the person can eventually stop having seizures, but for many it is a life-long condition.

The evaluation and management of risk needs to take into account the person's seizures and their unique circumstances. Ensuring that seizures are correctly diagnosed, that treatment plans are followed and that first aid information is available, will minimise risk.

We have a number of products that can help detect seizures, helping people to take preventative actions and raise attention to others.
