Changing the Conversation Around Temperature 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?"

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 people can get temperature relief, they can stay in control of their lives.
