Intended Use/Indications for Use
The SPEAC® System is indicated for use as an adjunct to seizure monitoring in adults in the home or healthcare facilities during periods of rest. The System records and stores surface electromyographic (sEMG) data for subsequent review by a trained healthcare professional.
The device is to be used on the belly of the biceps muscle to analyze sEMG signals that may be associated with generalized tonic-clonic (GTC) seizures. When sEMG signal patterns associated with a unilateral, appendicular, tonic extension that could be associated with a GTC seizure are detected, the SPEAC System sends adjunctive alarms to alert caregivers. Adjunctive alarms may be disabled by a physician order while continuing to record sEMG data for subsequent review.
