Billy’s new machine has sophisticated sensors (placed beneath his mattress) that can tell the difference between his normal sleep activity and seizure-induced movement, as well as detect changes in his breathing patterns.

Mum Charlotte tells us: “We are so grateful to Variety for Billy’s equipment, which has been a life saver. Billy has been through so much for his age and has had quite a few hospital stays, so it’s top equipment that he needs. This machine has made our lives so much easier. It monitors his breathing, so we parents can sleep at night knowing we will be alerted if he is in danger. Billy is thrilled too, as he now feels so much safer. Here’s a huge thank you to Variety from one pleased little four-year-old!.”
