Developments in Behavioural Therapy It has emerged that the latest research undertaken at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School could change the way we develop epilepsy treatments.

Individuals with epilepsy often used medications in an attempt to reduce their seizures or in fact, stop them entirely. Whilst 70% of people with epilepsy in the UK experience positive changes with the right treatment, the remaining thirty per cent of individuals find that medications cannot control their epilepsy.

Therefore many individuals turn to alternative treatments such as specific diets or more evasive solutions such as vagus nerve stimulation or brain surgery. However, as initially mentioned new developments could change the way seizures are controlled. Read here for more information:

Epilepsy Research Survey Results

As you can imagine there are a host of questions and queries regarding assistive technology such as tonic-clonic seizure alarms. When purchasing such an important piece of equipment it is essential that you get it right. However, there is currently very limited impartial information available to UK residents regarding both brands and the products themselves.

You might remember that a few months ago we encouraged you to take part in a survey carried out by Epilepsy Research UK. With the support of other charities they conducted independent research into individual?s experiences of using various tonic-clonic seizure alarms. Including reviews of the Alert-iT Companion Monitor the charity have now released the survey findings in an unbiased information document. Read on for more information:

Alert-it Dedicated Facebook Forum

Many of you may remember that -and hopefully will have been helped- in December 2014 Alert-it produced an Epilepsy Awareness campaign aimed to bring this condition to the forefront of everyone?s mind. The campaign wasn?t exclusive and was aimed at individuals who have epilepsy themselves, those who are friends or family members, carers, or just a stranger in the street.

With successful results throughout the campaign and many positive reviews of the blog series which we produced to run alongside, we thought we could do even more to help.

Therefore we have created a forum which we hope will become a place for individuals, family members and carers alike to find support, ask questions and share their stories in regards to assistive technology, and other epilepsy related issues.
