Arduino Seizure Alarm

Back in early 2014, my son Daniel was diagnosed with Benign Rolandic Epilepsy, a type of Epilepsy the Epilepsy Foundation says accounts for about 15 percent of all Epilepsies in children. The good news is that most children grow out of it. The bad news is that he’s most affected by his condition at night while he sleeps. The three seizures he’s had in the past year-plus have been either in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Because of this, we invested in a sleep monitor/alarm for his bed that detects when he’s having a full tonic-clonic seizure.”
