Medpage MP5 Seizure movement detection monitor with pager alarm

Detects nocturnal Tonic/Clonic seizure movement
Wireless notification of detected seizures signalled to MPPL pager with tone or vibration alert
Built in microphone to detect vocalisations preceding or during a seizure
Adjustable sensitivity to allow for patient body weight and bed mattress type

The MP5 was first introduced to market in 1995 and has remained our top selling Tonic/Clonic monitor ever since. The monitor is very easy to use and is suitable for general seizures and most bed types. The Medpage MP5, despite its advanced seizure movement analysis software and high-grade processing power, is priced to be affordable by families without compromise on quality or performance.

How does the MP5 work?

A patented movement sensor is positioned under the persons mattress to detect nocturnal Tonic/Clonic seizure movement. An alert is transmitted to carer pagers (2 supplied) upon detected seizure movement. The monitor is powered by a mains charger and has a 24 hour battery backup in case of mains power failure or interruption. The sensor has a sensitivity control to allow for adjustment for patient body weight and bed mattress type.

During a convulsive Tonic/Clonic seizure (stiffening then jerking) the sensor identifies the unusual prolonged movements. Seizure movement can be detected as quickly as 5 seconds, depending on settings as described above. The monitor then transmits an alarm signal to the two carer pagers supplied as part of the system.

Some people vocalise preceding or during a seizure. To aid reliable detection of minor convulsive seizures, a built in microphone, frequency tuned to detect human sounds, continually monitors for sound. A gain (sound level) control allows the optimum sound detection level to be set, with the setting also digitally stored to prevent tamper. Detected sounds result in an alarm transmission to the carer pagers.

How do I set up the MP5?

A quick tweak of the control dial is all that is required to set the correct movement detection
level, confirmed by a lit LED. A feature invented by Medpage Limited, permissible movement alarm delay, also has a control dial allowing adjustment from 2 20 seconds. This setting allows a person to turn over, cough, or reposition themselves on their bed without an alarm generated. This feature virtually eliminates false alarms. Adjustment of the controls takes only a few seconds and when complete are digitally stored to prevent tampering or accidental adjustment.

Who is the MP5 suitable for?

The MP5 is best suited for older children (minimum user body weight of 25kg) to adults
who experience nocturnal Tonic/Clonic seizures.
