7 Must-Have Shark Tank Products For Epilepsy Living

Living with a chronic illness involves change. There are certain tasks and activities that you can no longer participate in because it could put you at risk of provoking a seizure or flare up.

I’ve had to make several changes following my epilepsy journey, I’ve since become a ‘simple solution to a problem enthusiast’. That’s probably why one of my favorite shows is Shark Tank.

I love to see how people not only come up with a solution to an existing problem but also how they rise above obstacles to create the product and share it with the world.

I watch just about every episode and I can sincerely say that the products I see showcased are noteworthy and give every indication of being helpful to those living with epilepsy or any chronic illness.

Below I’m sharing ideal Shark Tank products for those living with epilepsy. These products impressed the Sharks and I think they will do the same for you!

Here are my 7 Shark Tank product picks for you. I’ve added direct links and air schedule to help you learn more about the products.

Buzzy – Takes The Sting Out Of Shots

Season 5 episode 18

What Is It:

A small vibrating bee with blue ice-pack wings. Just like cool running water soothes a burn, Buzzy uses a combination of cold and vibration to replace pain with temperature and movement.

Why Is It Worthwhile:

If you have a chronic illness, needle pokes are an all too familiar feeling but can still sometimes be uncomfortable.

My least favorite is the butterfly needle which can be inserted in a vein on the back of your hand or in the space near your elbow. This, used to access a vein for drawing blood or giving medications. Typically during hospital stays.

Buzzy is an ideal product to alleviate the sting caused by needle pokes.

Sleep Pod By Hug Sleep

Season 12 Episode 3

weighted blanket

What Is It:

A unique alternative to a weighted blanket – applying a gentle, calming pressure, just like a hug.

Why Is It Worthwhile:

Stress is one of the top seizure triggers of those living with epilepsy and hugging can help cut down stress. This lightweight cocoon-like blanket applies gentle pressure around your entire body, simulating the feeling of being hugged.

As a stay-at-home wife and an epilepsy advocate, I have numerous responsibilities which can pile up and sometimes get stressful. A hug can be helpful to someone with a full plate.

The Sleep Pod is breathable and lightweight and the latest model has a foot flap at the bottom for foot freedom.

IceBeanie Headache & Migraine Cold Pack Hat

Season 12 Episode 13

cold pack

What Is It:

A wearable ice pack for headaches and migraines

Why Is It Worthwhile:

Following a seizure, a person can sometimes experience an extremely painful headache – postictal headache.

The postictal phase can last for seconds, minutes, hours, and sometimes even days.

After I’ve experienced a seizure, my head feels it is in a vice that someone is continually tightening. It’s difficult for me to think clearly or speak intelligibly.

This cold pack is an all-natural product to help reduce pain and inflammation associated with headaches, migraines and more.

LARQ Self- Cleaning Water Bottle

Season 12 Episode 21


What Is It:

A Water bottle with a UV light in the cap that purifies the water and cleans the water bottle to prevent bacteria.

Why Is It Worthwhile:

It’s very important to stay hydrated. Especially while having to take multiple medications daily.

It is recommended to drink a full 8-ounce glass of water when taking medications. A standard water bottle holds 16 ounces of water. Not drinking enough water may also cause throat irritation and, in some cases, prevent medication from working properly.

I take four different medications a day and that requires me to stay extra hydrated. Water and me must be besties.

Where You Can Purchase:

RING (Formerly known as Doorbot)

Season 5 Episode 8


What Is It:

A video doorbell that records activity outside your home.

Why Is It Worthwhile:

Many people with a chronic illness are housebound and it can be difficult to get out and about. Especially if you’re struggling with symptoms. By having the Ring doorbell installed at your home you can easily see who is at your door, and can even have two-way communication with whoever is there….all from your phone without having to leave your bed should you be resting and recovering.

After I’ve experienced a seizure, sometimes the best thing that I can do is rest. My body has just been through a trauma and needs to recover. Should anyone come to the house, I can’t always make it to the door.

RING is ideal in assisting me should such a situation occur.

Where You Can Purchase:

Amazon or


Souper Cubes

Season 12 Episode 14

food cubes

What Is It:

Perfectly portioned trays that go in the freezer to save portions of your meal prep or leftovers.

Why Is It Worthwhile:

Frozen meals can be a lifesaver for those living with a chronic illness. They are quick to pull out on a recovery day without the stress and anxiety of prepping and preparing the food. The Souper Cubes have double the food capacity of similar ice cube trays and can easily be stacked in the freezer.

Other freezer trays are flimsy, collapse in the freezer, and include thinner and cheaper materials but Souper Cubes are designed with stainless steel wire to avoid spills.

As an added bonus, they are dishwasher and oven safe (up to 415F)!

Simply Fit Board

Season 7 Episode 7

exercise board

What Is It:

An easy-to-use piece of exercise equipment for a low impact full-body workout

Why Is It Worthwhile:

Staying active is a key component in maintaining or regaining health, but it can sometimes be difficult to fit into our day. Especially when at home. This balance board with a twist is small and can easily be tucked under your bed and can give you a full body workout in just a few minutes a day. It weighs 4lbs and can be easily taken with you when you travel too. Place it in your suitcase or backpack and use it in your hotel when you want to get a small but effective workout.
