Feb 7, 2024

BOSTONFeb. 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Embr Labs, Inc, makers of Embr Wave®, the leading temperature wearable, today announced pivotal sleep study results showing that subjects who wore the Embr Wave demonstrated a significant improvement in several measures of sleep quality including perceived sleepiness, sleep quality, reduced nocturnal resting heart rate, and increased sleep efficiency. Subjects also showed improved performance in morning cognitive abilities.

A first of its kind study, Embr labs collaborated with leading human performance researchers at the.West Virginia University Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute to examine the impact of the Embr Wave thermal wearable on sleep quality in men and women. Because the Embr Wave’s temperature sensations work in harmony with the human body, the technology is able to provide improved sleep naturally, without drugs or side effects.

“This is a groundbreaking study,” said Dr. Pam Peeke, study co-author and Senior Clinical Investigator for Embr Labs, “revealing that thermal sleep technologies like the Wave play a valuable and critical role in improving not just overall sleep quality but sleep physiology itself, to enhance people’s quality of life.”

“We’ve already demonstrated the Embr Wave’s ability to help women in midlife with impaired sleep,” said Matt Smith, PhD, CTO of Embr Labs, “but this study provides evidence that the Embr thermal device is also effective for a wide population of men and women – supporting the real-life experience of our customers who have come to us seeking safe, non-invasive solutions.”

The study follows Embr Labs’ recognition by the National Sleep Foundation as a SleepTech Award winner and the Embr Labs brand being named to the Foremost 50 list of breakthrough consumer brands.
