This Ingenious Device Helps Control Your Body Temperature With the Touch of a Button
The Embr Wave Bracelet is like your own personal thermostat.
Nothing is more essential to a productive day than a good night’s sleep. And if you’re one of the 33 percent of people who suffer from abnormal sleeping patterns during hot weather, you’re probably dreading the thought of summer. Our bodies need a room temperature of about 65°F (18.3°C) to create the perfect sleeping environment. But for many people, it’s impossible to get their bedrooms to maintain that perfect temp. Luckily, there’s the Embr Wave Bracelet. Rather than change the temperature of the room, it helps control your own body temperature.
The Embr Wave is the world’s first bracelet designed to help your body feel the perfect temperature regardless of your situation. It’s like a wearable personal thermostat that warms up or cools down at the press of a button… literally. Press the blue side of the button to cool things down, or the red side to heat things up. Once you press the button, you’ll instantly feel the temperature sensation. And with the Embr Wave, you’re always in control. The longer you hold the button, the more intense the temperature sensation becomes. Additionally, The Wave pairs with a mobile app to give you more control over how you feel. You can use it to personalize your experience with different modes and settings so you’re always comfortable.
Synthesizing temperature in the right spot can make a big impact on how your body feels. By cooling or warming the temperature-sensitive skin on the inside of your wrist, the Embr Wave can make you feel hotter or colder. It does this with a ceramic tile that faces your skin. Once you press the button to active your Wave, this tile heats up or cools down immediately. The Wave’s thermal sensations, which are referred to as Waveforms, have been carefully engineered to maximize the feeling you get from each pulse, while also balancing power consumption to allow you to cool or warm for longer periods on a single charge.
When you feel something warm or cold, a lot more is happening than you might think. Temperature changes are detected by nerve endings in your skin called thermoreceptors. They send signals to your brain that affect everything from your physical comfort to your emotional state.
On the inside of your wrist is a special spot that has a very high density of thermoreceptors. The Wave only needs to cool or warm a small area in order to create a big difference in how you feel overall. The Embr Wave targets this area to cool or warm your skin, triggering your nerves to send a signal to your brain. Your brain naturally processes the thermal sensation, which triggers a reaction from your body to regulate your temperature in the direction you want it to go. It’s just that simple.
