“A device that could be sold at the Apple Store, but was designed to save lives.”Empatica founder Matteo Lai

It’s no secret that wearables are today’s latest technology trend.  But Embrace, which looks like any other smartwatch, is something much different.  What sets Embrace apart is its ability to recognize epileptic seizures.  Via its corresponding smartphone app, caretakers are automatically alerted when a seizure is predicted to happen to their loved one or themselves.

This device is the first wearable that is both high in medical quality and sleek in design.  It uses clinical-grade sensors (which detect electrodermal activity) to monitor seizures, physiological stress, arousal, sleep, and physical activity.  These extra features make Embrace marketable beyond epileptics. This product is the result of more than seven years of research and development from medical designers from MIT.
