Medpage Ultra Sensitive Children's Epileptic Seizure Movement Detector Alarm MP5-UT

When a child or adult suffers an epileptic seizure in bed, it's crucial a reliable alarm monitor is in place to detect the seizure and quickly alert parents, loved ones or carers. The Medpage Ultra Sensitive Children's Epileptic Seizure Movement Detector Alarm MP5-UT accurately detects typical seizure movements and vocalisations using a monitor and connected bed mat, and instantly alerts carers using one of the two included radio pagers when epileptic movements are detected.

What's Included?

The Medpage MP5-UT includes everything needed for quick setup in minutes. This includes:

  • 1 x Seizure monitor unit with sensor fitted (with connected mains power adaptor)
  • 2 x MPPL Pagers
  • 4 x AA batteries (installed in the pagers)
  • 1 x Bed Sensor Mat
  • 1 x User instruction booklet

How Does the Medpage Seizure Detector Work?

This monitor uses a sensitive bed mat and vocalisation monitor to detect typical movements and sounds resulting from epileptic nocturnal tonic/clonic seizures, and then instantly alerts parents or caregivers via a pager. All aspects of the monitor are adjustable, allowing each user to tailor alert thresholds based on duration and intensity of seizure movements. The Medpage Detector Alarm is part of the Epilepsy Alarm System, which you can find more about by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.

Which Settings Can Be Adjusted?

While most users will be able to use the MP5-UT without adjustment, all aspects of its seizure detection can be adjusted to suit your needs. The three adjustable dials are used to control the following:

  • Bed Sensor - Controls the intensity of movement needed to trigger the alarm
  • Microphone - Controls how loud a sound must be to trigger the alarm
  • Delay - Controls the duration of movement that will trigger the alarm

Can I Use the Medpage Seizure Monitor Straight Out of the Box?

Yes, all Medpage monitors are designed to be suitable for use straight out of the box, with batteries pre-installed. This allows the monitor to be ready when you need it, and minimises hassle in the setup process.

Where Should the Monitor Unit Be Placed?

The monitor unit itself is best placed in a safe place next to the bed. It attaches to the bed sensor mat using a removable lead, allowing you to unplug the lead in order to feed it through any bedposts or awkward areas.

Where Should the Bed Sensor Mat Be Positioned?

This super-sensitive sensor is to be positioned under the bed or cot mattress, where it continually detects body movements from a sleeping child or other user. The sensor should be placed so that the user will cover the maximum amount of the mat while sleeping, making the waist-torso area the best choice. The large sensor is designed for improved movement detection, allowing it to detect nearly all seizure-related movements.

How Does This Monitor Eliminate False Alarms?

Normal movements such as rolling over and turning in the night are common, so it's important that this monitor has measures in place to prevent false positives. The digital alarm delay control allows the user to set thresholds for movement detection, ensuring small, short movements do not trigger an alarm. It's worth noting that having your settings adjusted to 'Max' will increase your risk of false alarms being triggered.

Will It Work in a Power Failure?

It's crucial that a power failure doesn't get in the way of your loved one's safety, which is why the MP5-UT is equipped with a 12-hour battery backup. It includes a pre-installed battery in the monitor that is automatically charged when the unit is plugged in to mains power, ensuring you have peace of mind whether the power is working or not.

Is It Easy to Set Up?

For the majority of users, setup will be instant and no adjustments will need to be made to settings. When installing your unit, consult the included user instruction manual and turn to the section titled 'Setup Mode'.

What Does the Delay Dial Do?

The delay dial on the Medpage monitor is there to reduce false alarms by adjusting the movement thresholds that will trigger an alert. For example, the average person would require a 15 second delay, meaning that at least 15 seconds of movement must be detected before the alarm is triggered. This will allow the user to make normal movements in bed such as turning over or shifting without setting off the alarm.

Which Beds Is This Seizure Monitor Suitable For?

This monitor is highly versatile, and is suitable for use with most beds and mattresses, including memory foam mattresses. It is suitable for cots and cribs, as well as single and double beds.

How Can I Clean the Medpage Seizure Monitor?

After repeated use, the Medpage Epileptic Movement Detector may require decontamination. The sensor and main console can be disinfected by wiping with a cloth that is permeated with normal dilutions of sodium hydrochloride (1PPT). These items can also be cleaned using standard alcohol wipes.

How Long Is the Monitor Lead?

The lead that connects the monitor to the bed sensor is 3 metres long. This provides enough space to safely connect the two while avoiding tautness or tension.

How Does the Sensor Detect Movement?

The detected movements are analysed by computer software that differentiates usual sleeping movement from typical seizure movement. If continuous seizure activity is detected, it generates an alarm that is transmitted to a radio pager to warn the parents or carer of an ongoing seizure.

Why Should I Trust Medpage Monitors?

When it comes to the wellbeing of your child or loved one, you need to be sure you can trust the equipment you're using to ascertain their safety. This Medpage seizure detection system has been used by parents and carers for over 20 years, helping to ensure everyone involved gets a good night's sleep knowing that they'll be alerted as soon as a seizure begins. Easy to set up and reliable in use, the Medpage MP5-UT is at the top of the class in terms of seizure detection.

Understanding the MPPL Epilepsy Alarm System

The MPPL Epilepsy Alarm System is a series of pagers, monitors, sensors, transmitters and full kits that enable you to monitor people while they are asleep. It is designed for those with epilepsy, dementia and other similar diseases. Unfortunately, it can be quite difficult to get your head around, so we've created this guide for understanding your way around the MPPL System.

What Do I Need to Know Before Purchase?

The Epilepsy Alarm System features three different kinds of products. These are MPPL Pagers, Transmitters, and finally the group Switches, Buttons, Sensors and Detectors. The system works in the following way:

A sleeping person has a seizure and triggers a sensor, followed by the sensor triggering the transmitter. The transmitter sends an alert to the pager which sounds an alarm which alerts a carer or loved one.
