[prMac.com] Orlando, Florida - SeizAlarm, LLC announces the iPhone and Apple Watch app SeizAlarm, which offers those with epilepsy and other seizure disorders the ability to quickly request help from emergency contacts.
SeizAlarm's "Seizure Warning" feature is for those that frequently have auras (simple-partial seizures) that don't always lead to a convulsive grand mal seizure. The "Seizure Warning" allows the user to start a time delayed help request. Once initiated, a timer counts down the customizable delay and the user is able to extend the time on the timer if needed.
If the request isn't ended manually then a help request is sent to the user's emergency contacts. This is helpful if the user becomes unresponsive due to a seizure. So, the user can initiate the request and not worry about contacting someone. When a help request is sent to the user's emergency contacts they will receive a text, email and a phone call notifying them about the request. The user's GPS coordinates will also be sent so they know exactly where the user is located.
"As an epileptic myself, I wanted to create an app that I could use to request help if I need it. Having this functionality brings me peace of mind and helps me feel more secure in my independence" said Greg Pabst, Co-Founder of SeizAlarm.
SeizAlarm is available free in the app store with free help request service for a limited time. In the near future, SeizAlarm will also offer seizure-like motion detection via the iPhone. This will allow for seizure help requests to be automatically sent upon the onset of an unexpected convulsive seizure.
SeizAlarm allows users to send immediate help requests. Your emergency contacts will be contacted via multiple channels (text message, phone call and email) to make sure they receive the request. There is also a time delayed help request feature (via the "Seizure Warning" button) that is helpful for those that have auras that may turn into tonic-clonic seizures.
Users 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, so they know exactly where you are.
You can are also able to track your seizure events with robust logging features. SeizAlarm also supports multiple emergency contact support, so more than one person can be contacted when you need help.
