One of the questions that we get the most is how to wear Embr Wave. Embr Wave is most effective when worn on the inside of the wrist, since there is a particularly high concentration of thermoreceptors there.
Another thing that some people are unaware of is that you can make the warming/cooling much more powerful by holding down the right/left side of the light bar for several seconds before letting go. You can also use the Embr Wave mobile app to make sure you're using a strong enough cooling level.
Most people find Embr Wave most effective when they check in on how they're feeling after the temperature session is complete. Our studies with UC Berkeley showed that participants felt an average of a five degree temperature difference after three minutes of warming or cooling.
Finally, we also recommend trying out Extended Mode, which features improved waveforms and allows you to extend sessions from 3-5 minutes to 30 minutes. Extended Mode can be activated either through the Embr Wave app or by double-knocking the face of the device during a session in Quick Mode.
We're constantly improving the device via firmware updates through the Embr Wave app, so try updating your Embr Wave to the latest firmware version first before using it!
