A Novel Noninvasive Thermoregulatory Device for Postural Tachycardia Syndrome
Trial ID or NCT#
The investigators hope to learn the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of the Embr device for improving thermal comfort in individuals with POTS and impaired thermoregulation. Feasibility will be assessed via usage of the Embr device and participant feedback. Preliminary efficacy measures will include temperature-related symptoms and temperature- related quality of life in individuals with POTS and impaired thermoregulation.
