That's where the Embr Wave® from Embr Labs can help. The Wave is a wearable device that offers natural and immediate help for managing hot flashes—anywhere you go and any moment of the day, without others needing to know.
Stay cool and comfortable with Embr Wave
The Wave is a smart device worn on the inside of your wrist, where your skin is highly sensitive to changes in temperature. Inside this compact device is a thermoelectric heat pump that can generate warm or cool sensations lasting from 5 minutes up to 9 hours. Using precisely engineered pulses of cooling or warming known as Waveforms, Embr Wave activates your body's natural ability to cool itself and restores balance by adjusting the way you perceive temperature.
How Embr Wave keeps you cool
When you feel a hot flash coming on, just press a button on the Wave to start generating cool Waveforms on your inner wrist. These sensations send a feel-good signal to your brain that changes the way you perceive temperature, delivering instant relief for hot flashes. A peer-reviewed study completed with Johnson & Johnson showed that participants using the Wave reported a 168% improvement in their ability to control hot flashes and sense of temperature.
How can cool sensations on my wrist affect my perception of temperature?
Wearable cooling devices like the Wave take advantage of a natural response mechanism that causes your whole body to feel better when warm or cool sensations are applied to one small area of skin. The thermoreceptors in the skin of your wrist, for example, are connected to the part of the brain that controls emotion, pleasure, stress, and thermoregulation. When the Wave imparts cool comfort to your inner wrist, your brain gets a signal that helps recalibrate your sense of temperature in the rest of your body.
Why is it hard to find relief for hot flashes?
No one knows exactly why hot flashes happen. Scientists and doctors believe they may be caused by fluctuations in hormones that send a faulty signal to your internal thermostat that suggests your body is too warm and needs to cool down. As result, the blood vessels below your skin dilate to expel heat quickly and your sweat glands kick into gear to help you get cooler.
Hot flashes are usually associated with menopause, though they can also be experienced by men and can be caused by a wide variety of conditions and diseases. Traditional treatment includes avoiding hot flash triggers like alcohol, caffeine, spicy foods, and stress and anxiety. For women with severe hot flashes, relief can sometimes be found through prescription medicines or hormone replacement therapy. However, these approaches come with some pretty serious side effects, and they can't deliver the instant relief when hot flashes strike at work, in public, or during the night.
That's why women (and men) dealing with hot flashes are so excited about Embr Wave. It gives you control over your experience with temperature, delivering natural hot flash relief on demand. It's totally silent and inconspicuous, so no one will ever know that you're using it.
Additional benefits of the Wave
In addition to hot flash relief, the Wave can deliver thermal comfort in many other ways.
Temperature plays a big role in your ability to fall asleep and to rest comfortably throughout the night. The Wave's Fall Asleep sessions can help lull you into slumber, and the All Night sessions can help keep you resting comfortably for up to 9 hours at a time. Studies show that using Embr Wave can help address insomnia, reduce sleep disturbances, and relieve the effects of nighttime hot flashes.
When you feel chilled or overly warm during the day, you can count on Embr Wave's patented temperature sensations on your skin to help you feel better in seconds. The Wave can adjust your perceived temperature by up to 9°F, giving you more control over how you feel no matter who's in charge of the thermostat.
On days when you're feeling anxious, a change in temperature can help you feel more relaxed and tranquil. Think of how a cold compress or a hot bath can help relieve tension at the end of the day. When you're feeling stressed, the Wave gives you the power to create warming and cooling sensations whenever you need them, tapping into your body's natural ability to use temperature to comfort itself.

What are hot flashes?
A hot flash is a feeling of intense warmth that may cause your body to perspire heavily, your skin to turn red, and your heart to beat faster or unevenly. These incidents are believed to be the result of a signal mistakenly sent to the brain that suggests the body is too hot and needs to cool down. As a result, the brain signals blood vessels near the surface of the skin to expand, creating a feeling of sudden warmth.
What are night sweats?
Night sweats are hot flashes that happen while a person is sleeping. While menopause is a common cause of night sweats, women and men may also experience night sweats because of sleep disorders, anxiety, drug addiction, treatment for cancer, autoimmune disorders, and other conditions.
