Emfit Seizure Alarm – Movement Monitor
This bed sensor system is designed to detect micro-movements associated with tonic-clonic seizures. A large thin sensor mat is placed under the user’s mattress and will detect when a person has continued abnormal movements over a pre-set period of time and then raises an alert.
The Emfit Control Unit has a built-in audible alarm that will sound during a seizure which is ideal where a carer or parent is in the same room. You can also connect a pager or careline alarm to the Emfit epilepsy bed sensor.
- Detects tonic-clonic seizures

- Sensitivity adjustment
- Can be used as a bed occupancy sensor
- Six months of failure back-up
- Compatible with nurse call systems
- Easy set-up
- Only $1235 + gst
Sleep sensor for detecting repetitive muscle jerking in the body
EMFIT Epilepsy Seizure Movement Monitor is designed to be a night-time motion detector for any type of sustained night-time movement. It detects fast, abnormal movements that may occur during the night, and will sound a high-frequency alert if these movements continue past a preset amount of time.
EMFIT Epilepsy Alarm is the top selling device of its kind and currently in use in over 60 countries worldwide. It is clinically proven technology that’s easy to install.
Night Time Seizure Detection
EMFIT MM consists of a film-like bed sensor and a control unit. The dynamic sensor pad is placed under the mattress and detects even the slightest movements of the person lying above it, including micro-movements caused by the heart beating. The sensor is attached to the control unit with an interconnection cable. Faster, sustained movements that continue longer than pre-set thresholds will trigger a notification. The system can also notice light movements, thus making it suitable even for small children.
Night time Seizure detection
Monitoring for signs of irregular motion throughout the night
EMFIT detects micro-movements such as a heart beating from underneath the mattress.
Peace Of Mind
Peace of mind knowing a monitor is tracking movements constantly.
No Age Or Weight Restrictions
The Emfit can be used by anyone – from infants to elderly.
