Hi Safs, thank you for the question.

As an epileptic one should avoid any treatment that produces light or pulses/flashes of light. As far as I am aware of the use of Galvanic machines are safe with controlled epilepsy but my advice would be to contact the manufacturers of the machines and check with them directly.
