A battery powered alarm unit which detects vibrations from people having a seizure. It consists of a vibration detector attached to the bed using hook and loop tape and an alarm unit activated by radio signal. The unit has a built in time delay, meaning that the vibrations must be maintained for a minimum of four seconds before the alarm is activated allowing a person to move without activating the alarm. A tilt switch is also available to allow daytime use of the alarm.

Extra product information

The Vigil Aide consists of two components: an alarm unit with a power pack and a vibration detector. The small detector is in a pouch which can be attached to the bed of the person being monitored or attached to the person's belt during the day. It is attached to the bed / person via hook and loop fastening tape (hook and loop tape). There are no wires or long cables.

The sensor unit detects vibrations caused by a seizure and sensitivity can be adjusted. The commencement of a seizure is indicated by an alarm which can be audible, vibration or visual (flashing light).

The alarm unit has a built in time delay which can be adjusted from about 1 - 15 seconds before the alarm is activated (thus vibrations must be maintained, for example, for 4 seconds before the alarm is activated).The alarm is activated by a radio signal. Two ranges are available, 20 - 30 metres and up to 150 metres. The sensor is powered by a 9 volt lithium battery.
