Embr device

I immediately picked up in the words ‘dizziness and insomnia’ in the headline obviously.

Anybody tried this yet? The article infers its very new but I noticed several sites on line are currently sold out.

Another Smart device with its routes in biofeed science/technology? - I’ve no idea which. Quackery for all I know. Do these things work. Would that they did.

I read that article yesterday Helen and then read these reviews:

I also saw that it costs around $250- 300 and helps 26% of people achieve better sleep in tests
Take out from reviews:
It seems you can work it manually or use an app on your phone and it sends waves of either cold air up the outside of your arm to make you feel cooler or sends hot air when you need to be warmer to feel comfortable. It also doesn’t appear to work well outside, is a bit clumsy to wear in bed and gets in the way of typing/scrolling on devices when working. Is it really just the equivalent of a micro fan?? Reviewers seem to rate it for keeping you cool on planes, when feeling stressed or a bit sick or warming you up when getting too cold inside.

I had one, couldn’t wait to try it since I really struggle regulating heat during the summers here in the Midwest, St Louis summers. It’s so incredibly hot and humid: midlife, MAV and thyroid issues makes me a melting pot. Anyway, after trying it for a couple weeks… it did nothing for me. I desperately wanted it to work but it did not so I sent it back.

That’s really interesting. Thanks. You guys in the States seem to be well ahead of us here in the UK on devices and injectables/new drugs.

There are a lot of very positive reviews though, so I wonder if I’m just a tough case and it may work for you. I’d not discount trying it, especially since they have such a generous return policy… or did at the time I purchased. :blush:

Sing it. 100 degrees tomorrow, no AC, muggy with crap air quality from all the fires. I’d take a mini fan about now.

No, no. Just a post for general comment really. No intention of buying one. Far too cynical for that me. I switch off soon as I hear the word ‘biofeed’. Too far west of conventional medicine for me. In fact I could almost say the very thought makes my blood run cold in which case I wouldn’t need one anyway.:grin:. Oh I wish!

As you say some people might find it beneficial and if so good luck to them. Anything that helps reduce any symptoms makes for a happier existence. Wonder if/how it might work for POTS folk.

Hi - I’m in menopause and have hot flushes. I bought a really quiet fan and have it on the floor at the foot of the bed and I love it - keeps my face cool at night and if I get too hot I dangle a leg in front of it! I won’t help with the feeling cold but just thought I’d mention it in case it helps.

A woman after my own heart. I’ve had many a leg dangling out of bed in the middle of the night and I’ve fanned myself and Him Indoors with all the bed coverings at once (wonderful exercise for the upper arms too) in the wee small hours. Much more my sort of technology all that and less expensive too.
