Solutions for epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological condition which the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates to affect 50 million people around the globe. Here in Australia, it is believed that over 250,000 people are living with epilepsy, with 3-3.5 per cent of the population expected to experience the disorder at some point.

Although epilepsy is more commonly diagnosed in either the young or older, the condition is not limited to any age range, and can affect both men and women at any stage of their lives. Fortunately, the majority of epilepsy cases can be carefully managed through proper treatment and medication, allowing for a full, active life.

About epilepsy

One of the main characteristics of this condition is the recurrence of seizures, which involve involuntary muscular movement of a part, or whole of the body. Varying in intensity, seizures can also involve a temporary loss over bladder or bowel control and a possible loss of consciousness.

While anyone can have a seizure at some point in their life, epilepsy involves multiple seizure events, the frequency of which can vary from several in one day, to once per year.

At a neurological level, seizures are caused by excessive electrochemical activity in the brain, although it remains uncertain as to why those with epilepsy experience so many of these episodes.

Managing epilepsy

People with epilepsy do not only have to manage the challenges of their condition, but also experience a heightened level of psychological stress, making the provision of proper care and support imperative.

One of the dangers of seizures is often the situation in which they occur. Seizures while sleeping, for example, can pose great risk of injury if undetected.

In addition, families of those with epilepsy, especially children who experience seizures at night, can find their lives disrupted when concerned parents choose to sleep in their child's room in order to detect seizures.

Fortunately, technologies such as epilepsy sensors are unobtrusive, and allow for greater peace of mind for those with epilepsy, as well as their loved ones or carer.

Tunstall offers a range of tools to detect and notify if a person is experiencing a seizure, allowing help to be quickly arranged. Notifications of an incident may be sent to a 24-hour monitoring centre for offsite assistance or to an onsite carer.
