New Apple Watch App Uses Algorithm to Detect Seizures & Alert Providers

Smart Monitor, a Silicon Valley, CA-based provider of clinically validated solutions for the management of complex chronic conditions has announced the launch of SmartWatch Inspyre for the Apple Watch.  The new Apple Watch app uses a unique algorithm to recognize a wearer’s repetitive shaking movements, similar to those caused by convulsive seizures.

Designated family members and care providers are alerted upon onset of these movement patterns so they can intervene in a timely manner to maximize safety of their loved one. The episodic data is captured in a secure HIPAA-compliant cloud for review and analysis.

SmartWatch Inspyre users can also summon help with the push of a button. Alerts can be sent to any phone, anywhere, and detailed reports of each event can be securely accessed for later review with physicians.

“We are pleased to be able to offer Inspyre on the Apple Watch,” said Anoo Nathan, CEO in a statement. “This really is a game changer for patients and families alike. Inspyre enhances the safety and autonomy of people prone to seizures while providing peace of mind for families and loved ones.
