Comfort

Comfort

Embr Labs was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to work with Dr. Hui Zhang at UC Berkeley to evaluate the ability of Embr Labs’ technology to improve thermal discomfort.

This study found that thanks to its dynamic thermal waveforms, Embr Wave changes the perceived temperature of the room and improves thermal discomfort. Quantitatively, warming with Embr Wave was found to make an uncomfortably cool person perceive the room as 5°F warmer and cooling can help an uncomfortably warm person perceive the room as 5°F cooler.

Hot Flashes

Hot Flashes

During a hot flash, the brain acts upon a false signal that it needs to expel excess amounts of heat. It has been suggested that immediate stimulation with cool sensations can reduce the overall intensity and duration of a hot flash.

Embr Labs and Johnson & Johnson formed a partnership to study the benefits of Embr Wave for women dealing with hot flashes.

Sleep

Sleep

In humans, temperature and sleep are intimately related at the physiological level. During sleep, the body naturally increases skin temperature while lowering its core temperature. Dr. Roy Raymann realized that this effect could be leveraged, finding that localized skin warming is an effective non-pharmacological way to promote sleep.

With this research and consumer feedback in mind, our team developed “Fall Asleep Mode,” a 35-minute session designed specifically to promote sleep. Over 25% of active users have logged 100+ minutes of Fall Asleep Mode.

Stress & Mood Regulation

Stress & Mood Regulation

An emerging field called Social Thermoregulation is elucidating the relationship between temperature and social interactions and the opportunity for therapeutic interventions. In one study, participants who briefly held a cup of hot coffee (versus iced) judged the people around them as being more generous, trustworthy, and caring. (Williams 2008)

Exposure to warmth promotes generous behavior; in another study subjects were more likely to choose a gift for another person rather than themselves when holding a warm therapeutic pad. It has been suggested that people suffering from chronic loneliness have an increased tendency to take warm baths or showers, and subjects experiencing social exclusion had their need for social affiliation eliminated by a physical warmth experience. (Bargh 2012)

The full extent of this bidirectional relationship between social emotions and thermal sensations has been recognized in the field of psychology only in the last decade and points to an emotional opportunity for thermal sensations as a therapeutic intervention for managing emotions associated with social interactions. (Ijzerman 2017)

I can’t control the thermostat in my office, but the Wave helps me stay comfortable and productive - no matter what.

Works great for hot flashes! When I feel a hot flash coming on, I hit the cooling button and the hot flash doesn’t get out of control.

Bought this product for my mom who is experiencing menopause-related hot flashes. She seems to have adopted it into her routine and wears it regularly
