Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Dec 28, 2018

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Many individuals have a hard time regulating their body temperature.  Some are always freezing, while others overheat easily.  Embr Wave is a neat wearable that helps you cool down or warm up.
The Embr Wave slides onto your wrist like a watch and easily secures with a magnetic clasp.  To turn it on, simply press and hold the Wave's Light Bar to activate comforting waves of heating or cooling. According to the device's description, "By cooling or warming the temperature-sensitive skin on your wrist, Embr Wave helps you feel colder or warmer in minutes."
