American Sign Language: "seizure"
The sign "seizure" when referring to a person having a seizure, would generally be done using the lexicalized classifier: "SEIZURE." The handshape starts with the bent-V and rolls on the palm twice.
Is similar to version 1 except the handshape starts with a straight-V and snaps into a bent-V.
seize / arrest / grab onto
Use a quick motion.
The sign "freeze" could be used in some situation to mean "seize." As in something has "seized up" or frozen up.
