Hot flashes waking you up at night? The Embr Wave is a promising new technology that we have shown can help sleep.

It’s gettin’ hot in here

Body temperature, or thermoregulation, is an important consideration in establishing the right conditions for you to achieve better sleep.  At Somn, we have been studying sleep during menopause (Walters 2019); a shockingly overlooked area. 70 percent of women going through menopause experience hot flashes, and they can last for 11 years or even more!

Technology companies have ignored this problem, leaving you to deal with it through undesirable options like hormonal treatments, messy ice packs, and gels that you need to store in a freezer.  And men can experience night sweats as well!  Diet, stress, spicy foods, alcohol, and caffeine have been associated with causing night sweats in men.

Embr Wave Bracelet: why we like it

The science behind Embr Wave is compelling.  The bracelet works naturally with your body and mind.  Science shows that cooling or warming one spot on your body can improve your overall comfort without changing your core temperature.

In a study conducted in collaboration with Johnson & Johnson Innovation and published in Behavior Sleep Medicine, two thirds of participants reported improved control over thermal comfort, hot flashes, and sleep quality.
