Epilepsy Anti-Suffocation Pillows (often shortened to epilepsy pillow) are breathable, which helps allow free air flow, and for fluids to drain away.
For people with epilepsy, a seizure in bed might pose a risk of suffocation through restriction of breathing if the seizure pushes the person’s face into the pillow. Using an Anti-Suffocation Pillow (epilepsy pillow) can help ensure that breathing doesn’t become obstructed during a seizure, enhancing individuals’ safety and offering reassurance to families and carers.
Studies have shown that up to 45% of people with epilepsy mainly have seizures during the night. So if you worry about you or your loved one having a seizure during the night, the Epilepsy Anti-Suffocation Pillow can help put an end to your worries… meaning you will also benefit from a more restful nights’ sleep.
- Made of a special material, which ensures that breathing won’t be restricted if you or your loved one has a seizure during the night
