Whether it's the hot flashes and night sweats that accompany menopause, problems with your thyroid, or simply too much stress and anxiety, feeling constantly warm can zap your energy and make it difficult to focus on even the most routine tasks at work and home.
A body cooler can have a big impact—if you can find a device that works for you. Popular personal cooling products include portable fans, ice packs, cooling towels, and even wearable AC technology that blows cool air against your skin. However, most of these devices are too cumbersome, messy, or conspicuous to use in public and professional settings. You probably wouldn't want to attend a board meeting with a noisy portable fan wrapped around your neck, after all.
Now there's a body cooler product that provides instant relief in a simple, seamless, and unobtrusive way. It's the Embr Wave® from Embr Labs, a smart thermal wristband that gives you more control over your experience with temperature.
Embr Wave: temperature relief at the press of a button
Embr Wave may look like a sleek smartwatch or bracelet, but it packs a lot of power when it comes to cooling you down. Within its stylish exterior is a compact thermoelectric heat pump that creates gentle warm or cool sensations that you feel on the skin on your inner wrist, which is highly sensitive to temperature. These sensations stimulate a connection to your brain that taps into your body's natural ability to rebalance your perception of temperature and help you feel better overall.
How can a wristband be a full body cooler?
To offer immediate relief when you're feeling too warm or cool, Embr Wave relies on a physiological reaction you already understand. Think of how wrapping your hands around a hot cup of coffee can warm you up from head to toe. Or how, on a hot day, just dipping your toes in cold water can make your entire body feel cooler. Even small thermal sensations (in the right amount and in the right place) can have a powerful full-body impact, automatically sending a signal to the part of your brain that regulates temperature as well as emotion, stress, and pleasure. In response, your brain quickly adjusts its perception of temperature throughout your body so you feel more comfortable.
Waveforms: precise cooling on demand
As a highly effective body cooler, Embr Wave lets you harness this ability to find comfort from temperature in a controlled and convenient way. Cooling or warming sensations are delivered in precisely engineered patterns called Waveforms. Different Waveforms are optimized for different kinds of relief and can be accessed through the Embr Wave mobile app. The app unlocks a huge range of features and personalization options, like being able to set your Wave to run from 5 minutes up to 9 hours at a time or reprogramming the device's buttons to create shortcuts to your preferred settings.
How to stop hot flashes
Women seeking hot flash relief products will find that Embr Wave offers instant relief that is safe, natural, and highly discreet. You can manage a hot flash with the press of a button or a tap in a mobile app, initiating a series of cool sensations to dissipate symptoms, restore your temperature balance, and let you get on with your day as quickly as possible. Many women also use the Wave as a body cooler for night sweats, perimenopause insomnia treatment, and hot flashes in early pregnancy.
The pros and cons of popular body coolers
Body coolers today come in all shapes and sizes. From cooling gels that evaporate on your skin to refrigerated vests you wear under your clothing, these products offer a variety of benefits—but with a variety of drawbacks as well.
All body coolers are designed to deliver rapid relief from hot flashes, overly warm rooms, or the excessive heat brought on by stress or medical conditions. However, most body cooler products aren't appropriate for professional situations; they're simply too disruptive or impossible to use discreetly. Ice packs, for example, might cool you down fast, but it's unlikely that you'd want to pitch a client with a bulky, melting ice pack strapped to the back of your neck. You can't stop in the middle of a presentation to grab a refrigerated cooling vest from the office freezer, and the mess of a spray mist or cooling gel that needs to be continually reapplied just doesn't work with business attire.
In contrast to these popular body coolers, Embr Wave gives you the power to find cool relief quickly, easily, and discreetly.
More benefits of Embr Wave
The Wave offers benefits and advantages that extend far beyond the typical body cooler.
Embr Wave's thermal sensations can help you feel more comfortable whenever (and wherever) you find yourself feeling too warm or too cold. A study found that the Wave helped participants feel on average 5°F warmer or cooler after just three minutes, with women feeling up to 9° cooler and 6° warmer.
Specially designed sleep sessions feature gentle waves of warming or cooling to lull your body into slumber more easily and keep you resting comfortably all night long. A peer-reviewed study with Johnson & Johnson found that people who used Embr Wave for two weeks were able to reduce insomnia, nighttime hot flashes, and sleep disturbances.
If you've ever felt a sudden rush of heat when you got frustrated or a sharp chill when you were anxious, you know that temperature and stress are closely related. And if you've ever taken a hot bath to relax or sipped an icy drink to calm down, you also know that the right kind of thermal sensations can play a big part in relieving stress. Embr Wave gives you quick access to cooling and warming waves created to soothe your nerves and ease tension during stressful moments—ready to go at the touch of a button.

What is a body cooler?
A body cooler is a product or device that offers cool relief in moments where you feel too warm. Body coolers are often used to provide relief for hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, stress, and other temperature-related conditions.
How does Embr Wave cool the body?
Embr Wave is a smart, thermal wristband that uses a compact heat exchanger to generate cool sensations that are felt on the temperature-sensitive skin of your inner wrist. These sensations send a feel-good message to the part of your brain that's associated with emotion, pleasure, stress, and thermoregulation. In turn, your brain changes your perception of temperature throughout your body to help you feel cooler overall.
Will Embr Wave lower my core body temperature?
No. Your body's core temperature typically stays at 98.6°F, even during the most severe hot flashes or cold sweats. Embr Wave's on-demand sensations simply tap into your body's natural ability to use temperature as a way of creating balance and feeling better.
