Embr Labs Inc, maker of Embr Wave, a wrist-worn device that delivers cool or warm waves of temperature to the inside of the wrist, announced sleep study results showing that subjects who wore the Embr Wave demonstrated a significant improvement in several measures of sleep quality.

These measures included perceived sleepiness, sleep quality, reduced nocturnal resting heart rate, and increased sleep efficiency. Subjects also showed improved performance in morning cognitive abilities.

For the study, Embr labs collaborated with human performance researchers at 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, according to a release from the company.

“This is a groundbreaking study 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,” says Pam Peeke, MD, study co-author and senior clinical investigator for Embr Labs, in a release.

Matt Smith, PhD, chief technology officer of Embr Labs, adds in a release, “We’ve already demonstrated the Embr Wave’s ability to help women in midlife with impaired sleep, 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.
