Apollo app and device

Apollo Neuro Fact Sheet

The Apollo™ wearable helps your body recover from stress, so you can relax, focus, sleep better, and feel better.

What is the Apollo wearable?


Apollo™ is a new kind of wearable that improves your body’s resilience to stress, so you can relax, sleep, focus, recover, and stay healthy. It’s like a wearable hug for your nervous system that helps you be a calmer, more mindful version of yourself.

Worn on the wrist or ankle, the Apollo device works by engaging with your sense of touch, delivering silent, soothing vibrations that help you feel safe and in control. Apollo Neuro’s scientifically validated technology trains your nervous system to bounce back from stress more quickly, going from “fight or flight” to “rest and digest”.

Use the Apollo Neuro app to transition through your day, choosing modes to help you relax, fall asleep, clear your mind, focus, and stay energized.

Like a workout for your nervous system, consistency is key — we recommend using the device 3+ hours a day, 5+ days a week, during the day and night. The more you use it, the better it works.

Developed by neuroscientists and physicians, the Apollo wearable is proven to improve heart rate variability (HRV), a key biometric of stress resilience. It’s a non-invasive, effective stress relief tool for adults and children, without drugs or side effects.

Rather than tracking your health, the Apollo wearable is proven to actively improve it. As it strengthens and rebalances your autonomic nervous system, your heart rate variability (HRV) improves – which means you’re building your resilience to stress. So you spend less time in fight-or-flight mode and get more time to rest and digest. Over time, your body learns to recover from stress more quickly, so you can relax, sleep better, and find deep, meaningful focus – anytime and anywhere.

Apollo Neuro’s stress-relieving technology has been tested across thousands of users in the clinic and in the real world through six complete clinical trials, with nine more currently underway. Here’s what we’ve seen, on average:
40% less stress and feelings of anxiety11% increase in HRVUp to 25% more focus and concentration19% more time in deep sleep

How do I use the Apollo wearable?


1. Download the Apollo Neuro app for iOS or for Android. The app will lead you through a few simple steps to create a profile and connect to your Apollo device.

2. Put the Apollo device on your wrist or ankle. Apollo is equally effective in either place, even worn over socks, and comes with medium and large straps so you can try both. See which is more comfortable for you, and mix it up throughout the day if you like.

3. Select your mode on the app and customize your duration and intensity. Start at a low intensity, around 20-40%. It’s normal to forget you’re wearing the Apollo device.

4. The Apollo wearable delivers gentle vibrations that signal safety to the brain, balancing your body and calming your mind.

For maximum benefits, we recommend 3+ hours a day, 5+ days a week, during the day and night. With consistent use over time, Apollo strengthens your nervous system and improves heart rate variability (HRV), training your body to rebalance and recover from stress more quickly.

Why did we create Apollo Neuro?


Apollo Neuroscience was born from research in neuroscience and psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. David Rabin MD, PhD, better known as Dr. Dave, is a neuroscientist and board-certified psychiatrist who has been studying the effects of chronic stress on mental and physical health for 15+ years. In his clinical work, he noticed a common theme: all of his patients’ symptoms got worse when they were experiencing stress.

Dr. Rabin began his research on what would become Apollo Neuro in 2014 at the University of Pittsburgh. In his clinical work, he noticed a common theme: all of his patients’ symptoms got worse when they were experiencing stress.

Stress sends a signal to our bodies that we’re under threat. It kicks off our fight-or-flight response and makes it difficult for us to focus, relax and maintain the sleep we need in order to recharge and recover.

Through extensive research, Dr. Rabin noticed that touch was often overlooked in stress management, despite its incredible ability to signal safety to the body and reduce stress.

Dr. Rabin discovered that certain waves of vibration can rapidly restore balance to our bodies and minds, while actively improving heart rate variability, a critical measure of the effects of mental and physical stress on the body.

After trials in both the lab and in the real world repeatedly demonstrated that Apollo measurably reduces stress, improves focus and helps people sleep, Dr. Rabin and Kathryn joined forces to bring Apollo out of the lab and into the lives of anyone looking for a non-habit forming and safe way to take control of their health.
