Personal cooling devices like ice packs, cooling gels, or portable fans can provide some relief. But most of these products are either too messy, too inconvenient, or too disruptive to use on the go or in professional settings.
Embr Wave® from Embr Labs offers an effective alternative. Delivering powerful, on-demand cooling at the press of a button, the Wave gives you access to immediate, convenient, and discreet relief in a sleek and stylish wristband that you can take anywhere and use anytime.
Get instant temperature relief with Embr Wave
Embr Wave is a smart device that looks like a bracelet or a smartwatch; but contained within its compact exterior is a thermoelectric heat pump that can instantly and silently generate pleasing warm and cool sensations. When felt on the sensitive skin of the inner wrist, these sensations tap into a neural pathway that prompts your brain to rebalance how hot or cold you feel. By applying just the right amount of cooling to just the right spot at just the right time, the Wave lets you take advantage of this natural response mechanism to get rapid relief for overheating.
How can cool sensations on the wrist help manage body overheating?
Your body has an innate ability to find all-over relief and comfort in response to localized thermal sensations—in other words, you don't have to warm or cool your entire body to feel warmer or cooler all over. Think of how you're able to warm up by wrapping just your hands around a hot mug of cocoa, or how sticking one foot out from under the covers when you're too hot can make your whole body feel cooler. Embr Wave allows you to generate concentrated warming or cooling sensations on demand, in a way that is optimized to bring you maximum relief.
The causes of body overheating
There are a number of common causes for overheating. Stress and anxiety are often the culprits, as the fight-or-flight reaction they produce can lead to excess heat. Overheating is a common side effect of many medications, including chemotherapy, immunosuppressants, antibiotics, and hormonal medications. Body overheating can also be caused by medical conditions like anhidrosis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes.
In women, the most common reason for overheating is the hormonal changes that happen during menopause and the years leading up to it.
As a woman reaches the end of her reproductive years, her body begins to produce less estrogen and progesterone. The North American Menopause Society explains that these fluctuating hormone levels surrounding menopause are thought to make the body's thermoregulation center more sensitive to temperature changes, frequently causing the brain to think the body is overheating. In response, the brain triggers the body to begin perspiring heavily in an effort to cool down and signals the blood vessels beneath the skin to open wide and expel excess heat, causing a sudden feeling of uncomfortable warmth.
How to get rid of hot flashes
Wondering how to stop hot flashes fast? Embr Wave offers powerful relief at the press of a button. With the Wave, you can quickly dissipate the symptoms of a hot flash by activating a cooling session that's customized to your needs. You'll instantly feel waves of cooling on your inner wrist, while your brain and body spring into action in the background to rapidly bring your perceived temperature back into balance. Embr Wave can also help to mitigate the effects of night sweats as well as other temperature-related conditions like cold sweats and perimenopausal nausea.
How Embr Wave keeps you cool
Embr Wave uses a miniature thermoelectric module in combination with patented software to generate warm or cool pulses in precisely engineered patterns called Waveforms. These sensations are designed to deliver optimal relief for different situations and needs, allowing you to take full advantage of your body's natural response to temperature and get fast relief when you need it most.
With the accompanying mobile app, you can explore a variety of cooling and warming sessions for hot flashes, sleep, comfort, and stress. Each session can be personalized, giving you control over the intensity and duration, with run-times that last from 5 minutes up to 9 hours. The app lets you edit and save sessions, and you can even reprogram the buttons on your Wave to give you quick access to your preferred thermal experiences—so when your body is overheating, the relief you need is always right at your fingertips.
Embr Wave works totally silently, with no moving parts or noisy fans; so, you can use it anytime and anywhere without anyone ever needing to know how you're managing your overheating issues.
Additional uses of Embr Wave
Unlike other solutions for body overheating, Embr Wave can be used to improve your wellness and feel better in other areas of your life.
Reduced stress levels
Temperature is a great tool for fighting stress, as anyone who's ever enjoyed a hot bath or a cold drink to unwind at the end of a long day can tell you. With Embr Wave, you can generate soothing warmth or refreshing cool whenever you need it to help calm your nerves and settle your mind.
Comfort anywhere and everywhere
Embr Wave lets you take control over your thermal comfort, no matter where you go. Whether you're someone who's always too hot or too cold, the Wave gives you the power to change how you feel with the press of a button. A study showed that participants who used the Wave for just three minutes were able to feel an average of 5°F cooler or warmer, with women reporting the ability to feel up to 6°F warmer and 9°F cooler.
Enhanced sleep quality
Temperature has an enormous impact on sleep. A study performed with Johnson & Johnson found that participants who used Embr Wave for just two weeks were able to reduce insomnia, minimize sleep disturbances, and mitigate nighttime hot flashes. The Wave features specialized thermal sessions to help you fall asleep faster and to rest comfortably through the night for up to 9 hours.
What is body overheating?
Physical reactions to certain stimuli can make it feel like your body is overheating. Things like stress, prescription medications, and certain diseases can interfere with your internal thermostat, increasing your heart rate, activating your sweat glands, and causing your body to expel heat through your skin. These feelings of intense warmth are most typically associated with menopause, when women may experience hot flashes and night sweats.
What are hot flashes?
Hot flashes, or heat flashes, are episodes of intense heat usually felt on the face, neck, and chest for 30 seconds to 5 minutes or more. These incidents may also involve heavy sweating, a racing heart rate, and feelings of anxiety. Hot flashes are a common symptom of menopause, when changing levels of hormones in the body cause the brain to mistakenly believe the body is overheating and needs to cool down quickly. Hot flashes in men are usually the result of low testosterone levels or reactions to certain cancer treatments.
How does the Wave cool the body with sensations on the wrist?
Embr Wave is a thermal wristband that produces a series of warm or cool sensations that are felt on the temperature-sensitive skin of the inner wrist. These sensations are carefully calibrated to stimulate a natural pathway to the brain, triggering a response that safely and rapidly changes your perception of temperature and helps you feel more comfortable when your body is overheating.
