Allergic reactions to Embrace

Updated:

Embrace is made of the highest quality of hypoallergenic materials (ISO 10993 compliant), therefore it's very unlikely that you'll develop an allergic reaction from it. In case you do, contact our support team (support@empatica.com) with a photo of the irritation if it doesn't go away in a few days.

Important Notes:

Embrace should only be worn on the surface of healthy skin. We advise that you suspend or discontinue use if the skin becomes red, itchy or if any pain is felt.  

Without regular cleaning, skin irritation is more likely to occur, so please make sure to clean Embrace regularly.
