11. This wearable improves the lives of seizure sufferers
The Embrace Watch by Empatica monitors physiological data continuously to give real-time feedback and personalized insight into a user’s day.
It features nervous system monitoring, on-wrist notifications, sleep monitoring and activity tracking. The Embrace Watch’s design features accelerometers, gyroscopes, electrodermal activity sensors and peripheral temperature sensor, according to the company.
The Embrace Watch was also designed to improve the lives of those who have seizures. It works by detecting unusual events like convulsive seizures in real-time after being connected to a smartphone using Bluetooth. The smartphone Alert app will activate when it detects an event on the Embrace watch and will notify caregivers. The caregiver will receive an automated call or text message. Users can also choose to have multiple points of contacts in the case of an event.
