Overview

Glenda has epilepsy and often gets seizures. We found out that, while asleep, Glenda can have a fit by merely rolling onto her back. Paul (her carer) must stay alert so that she does not injure herself, by ensuring that she remains on her right side.

Our leg strap solution takes advantage of triangles to ensure the wearer's side sleeping position throughout the night. It also includes a tilt alarm, activated in the unlikely event the leg strap becomes loose.

Glenda reported that she got used to the sleeping position quickly and did not turn over once, but would like the final product to be a bit more comfortable.
