Changing the Conversation Around Menopause Relief

Cold Lab. Hot Day.

Embr Wave began one summer day in MIT’s Material Science department. Co-founders Matt Smith, David Cohen-Tanugi, and Sam Shames were working on a project in Boston.

The day was hot, the lab was freezing. And like with any great invention, it began with a great question.

“Why are we still controlling human comfort through a device on the wall? Isn’t there a better way?"

We did the research, to bring you the benefits.

Take Control

Today, the Embr Labs team is conducting research in labs around the world. We are continuing to work on clinical validation and have multiple clinical trials in progress. 

We believe that if women can get menopause relief, they can stay in control of their lives. 

Menopause doesn’t get the final say.

Power in Perspectives

We believe that a wide range of identities and experiences are essential for creating the best possible products and workplace. Embr Labs is proudly led by a female CEO and a female Chief Medical Officer. Our growing team exemplifies our values of inclusivity and diversity—from the engineering lab to the board room—and has been recognized by the Boston Women’s Workforce Council for gender and racial diversity.
