Another update. - D

Over 1800 people have already joined the Embr Wave movement, and the number keeps growing. Another huge thank you to everyone who supported us so far.

Because of all of your amazing support, we've decided to keep the $199 Early-Bird tier open through the weekend. This means that if you haven't pre-ordered Embr Wave yet, you can still do so until Sunday Night for the $199 Early-Bird price and shipping date.

Because of you, Product Hunt featured us on their front page. It would mean a lot if you upvoted our project to help keep us there.
Your passion for Embr Wave landed us an article in 9 To 5 Toys.

Beta tester Sherri talked about how Wave helps her focus, saying "I turn the cooling on and am back to what I was doing..."

All of this is happening because you believed in our mission: harnessing the power of personalized temperature to help everyone feel more comfortable. We thank you for that support, and we can't wait for you to get Embr Wave on your wrist.

For anyone living in a country that we are currently not shipping to, we have an update for you.

We've heard your feedback and we've decided that as soon as we're able to ship to your country, we'll make sure that you're able to get Embr Wave at a discounted price.

In the meantime, we realized that the unsubscribe link we sent yesterday wasn't working. Email has not been our friend these past few days! Here is how you actually unsubscribe from USA/EU/Brazil Kickstarter Campaign Updates but still get notified once we're able to ship to your country:

Click the "Unsubscribe From USA/EU/Brazil Kickstarter Campaign Updates" link in the footer of this email and uncheck "USA/EU/Brazil Kickstarter Campaign Updates" on the following page.

Remember to add your name to our International Interest list. The more people we have for your country, the better the chance we'll be able to open up direct shipping to you.
Thank you again to everyone for all of your amazing support these first couple of days.

We're here for you if you have questions and feedback.

- David & The Embr Labs Team

Hoping to test, but the company has yet to reach out to me. Might bug them more in a bit if the early response is positive.

I received my embr wave in March, it works well. The true test will be when summer comes and I'm outside.

Default Embr Wave

Has anyone tried this long awaited thing in a hot environment. I mentioned to them on FaceBook that a clinical trial would be great for possible insurance coverage. And Iíd be happy to volunteer for the research. 😉

Default EMBR experiences? Just read their reviews.

Been getting FB ads from EMBR recently and revisited the EMBR website. Those users that had <4 stars reviews noted that the cooling action was not up to their needs. Hard for me to tell if any MS'ers had reviewed, but, thought I should weigh in here. Has anyone here tried the thing? I'm tempted, they have a 30 return policy, so I assume I can always send it back...

Default I have had the EMBRWave for several months

I have found it almost useless in the summer heat. I really only used the cold setting and set it to the extended cooling time. I am a farmer and hoped it would help me stay cool when I am selling at farmers’ Markets. It must be designed to warm people who work in offices with airconditioners .....in that I mean it is an accessory which, if anything, gives a very modest impression of warmth...
Not worth it. It really is useless. That’s my experience.

I tried it, and concur with MSLazarus...really did nothing for me on the cooling side. If one is cold sensitive, I guess it might help, but wasnít at all for me. Weird thing is that while one side does itís little cooling thing, the other side heats up. I took close to the full 30 days to keep giving it a chance but then just returned it. Really wanted it to help. At least customer service was good for getting me a quick and easy refund.

The company had this to say on their website, which has since been removed....

"Embr Wave is not a medical device. ... We have heard from customers that it does not provide symptom relief for people suffering from Multiple Sclerosis."

And then an ActiveMSer got this e-mail:

Quote:
Thanks for reaching out.

We've had a handful of customers purchase Embr Wave units for MS so far. My impression is that while it doesn't generally help too much with temperature management from MS, it can help people feel less bothered by uncomfortable temperatures.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Warmly,
Embr
But then I saw these posts on their Facebook page with happy MSers:

https://m.facebook.com/sharon.gordon...17585752341551

https://m.facebook.com/michael.marte...14841990137022

So, it may help, or (probably more likely) not at all....

Default Itís all about the money

Their response is bull... I am convinced that, like me, the eternal optimists with MS convinced themselves initially that the device was having a possible impact. Like all of us early adopters of devices that promise to help us in the fight, the early adoption of my embr wave is right there on the shelf next to my Segway and my walkaide. And these latter devices do offer limited help.
