Apollo Neuroscience has introduced Apollo, the first ever clinically validated wearable that actively helps your body adapt to stress, facilitating focus, sleep, energy, and more. While other wearables track your body, Apollo is the first ever to empower you to change it by delivering gentle waves of vibration clinically shown to rapidly restore your body’s natural equilibrium.

“We’re delivering the first wearable experience that actively improves your body’s resilience to stress, so you can have more energy, feel more relaxed, and get more sleep. Apollo’s mission is to democratize neuroscience discoveries to empower people to take control of their health,” said Kathryn Fantauzzi, chief executive officer and co-founder, Apollo Neuroscience.

Apollo was developed by physicians and neuroscientists at the University of Pittsburgh. The wearable device’s gentle waves of vibration signal safety to the body through your sense of touch and rapidly improve heart rate variability (HRV), a key metric of health and recovery. These safety signals help engage the parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in improved heart rate variability (HRV), sleep, focus, calm, energy, and more, reports Business Wire.

“Chronic daily stress can have a profound, disruptive effect on our bodies and result in harmful symptoms including insomnia, anxiety-disorders, chronic pain, cognitive dysfunction, and cardiovascular disease,” said Dr. David Rabin, co-inventor of the Apollo technology and chief innovation officer and co-founder at Apollo Neuroscience. “Apollo is the only technology that actually improves HRV and accelerates your body’s recovery from stress so you can feel energized, focused, and sleep better.”

Apollo is compatible with iOS and Android devices. Users can choose from a variety of Apollo programs to target and achieve goals:

  • Energy – Gives you a boost of energy when you’re feeling tired and sluggish.
  • Focus – Filters out distraction and settles your nerves for clear, calm focus.
  • Mindfulness – Prepares you for meditation by facilitating connection between mind and body.
  • Relaxation – Rapidly relieves stress for deep relaxation.
  • Sleep – Quiets your mind and eases you into restful sleep.
  • Social – Elevates mood and energy for social situations, whether at work or play.
  • Recover – Accelerates your body’s recovery after a workout.

The wearable has been evaluated clinically in university-led trials, and has undergone successful pilots to prevent burnout in the workplace. From over 2000 early users, more than 90% reported enhanced productivity, focus and sleep when using Apollo.

Apollo is now available for preorder for an all-inclusive price of $199 at apolloneuro.com.
