Cambridge, Massachusetts– Medical sensors are infamous for being bulky and not mobile-friendly. But they are also known for their extreme accuracy and lifesaving capabilities. Embrace is a medical watch that you won’t be ashamed to wear out in public. It is strategically designed to be a fashionable way of reducing stress for those suffering with epilepsy and for caregivers who are constantly monitoring their loved ones that struggle with epilepsy daily.
Epilepsy affects over 50 million people worldwide and 30% of those diagnosed are children.
Embrace is not just another step counter that conveniently rests on your wrist. And it’s not a wearable that you are likely to throw into a drawer to collect dust after it is given to you as a gift this holiday season. After many years of research at MIT labs, Embrace has surfaced and was recently crowd-funded on Indiegogo to raise funds for further development. Embrace has already been regarded as a next-level fitness tracker that is designed to save lives.
Embrace is able to alert caregivers when unusual events like a convulsive seizure occur. But it’s not just for people struggling to manage their epilepsy symptoms. Embrace is being marketed to anyone that wants to find out more about their stress levels, physical activity, or even monitor their sleeping patterns.
And did I mention that the first 4,000 backers get to put one of these life-saving devices into the hands of children before December 25th?
