Keep basic Embrace seizure alerts free of charge

This petition had 316 supporters

The Embrace seizure detection watch is a device that detects epileptic seizures and contacts selected caregivers to alert them that a seizure is taking place. A payment plan has been introduced as of the latest update in which even basic caregiver alert functionality will be disabled unless subscribed and paid for. Many epileptics are unable to work and do not have income to spare for this plan. Having already purchased the $250 watch, it is unfair to expect those people with such financial situations to also be able to afford the plan to allow the watch to remain purposeful. 

With this petition, we are exercising our rights as consumers and as human beings to life and to safety- with the intent of requiring Empatica to enable basic caregiver contact of at least one person at no additional cost. Catalyzing this change will give EVERYONE with the Embrace a chance at having their lives saved. We all deserve that. I urge you to sign if you are compelled by the issue at hand.

Thank you for your consideration!
