382: The Ultimate De-Stress Device | Dr Dave Rabin & Kathryn Fantauzzi
The Melissa Ambrosini Show
The Apollo might just be the world’s most powerful wearable device for reducing stress. My husband, Nick, is a big fan, and we’ve had plenty of dinner table conversations about how this seemingly innocuous wristband has transformed his sleep, his meditation, his yoga practice, his stress levels and more. Ever since we first tried it, I’ve been excited to get the creators of this device on the show, so that you can hear about this powerful technology for yourself, and find out more about how to retrain your nervous system, how to manipulate how you feel at the push of a button, and how to improve your wellbeing through science.Head to https://melissaambrosini.com/382 for the show notes.My newsletter: melissaambrosini.com/newsletterMy instagram: @melissaambrosiniThis episode is brought to you by DesignCrowd.

How The Apollo Wearable Helps Reduce Stress Levels • Dr David Rabin MD, PhD & Kathryn Fantauzzi
BioHackers Lab: Health Show for How to Live Your Best Life
Co-founders of Apollo Neuroscience Inc. and inventors of Apollo technology, Dr David Rabin MD, PhD and Kathryn Fantauzzi, are today’s guest interview. Dave and Kathryn help me review how the new wearable technology Apollo that they designed works to help restore balance to our nervous system and manage stress levels. They explain how Apollo uses vibration to help rapidly restore balance through our sense of touch. We then find out about the clinical studies and case studies that showed improvements to heart rate variability, sleep and focus. We also go into discussing user goals and various applications, Bluetooth connectivity and Airplane mode, FDA, HIPAA and bioavailability testing, how to wear it as well as how to use it.

Amplifying the Benefits of Meditation with Wearable Technology—Kathryn Fantauzzi—Apollo
Burnout: it’s a word most people use casually, and a condition not taken very seriously, or else blamed on the person who claims to experience it. But very recently, the World Health Organization has listed it as a medical syndrome, which might start to change the way our culture views this modern-day phenomenon. So, what exactly is burnout? According to Kathryn Fantauzzi, burnout can be characterized as a multitude of things, including exhaustion, the inability to concentrate or complete tasks, disengagement from the environment, and the inability to sleep. To describe it another way, burnout is a state of chronic stress that can lead to serious short and long-term consequences for our health—not to mention sap the quality and joy of our lives. As the CEO and co-founder of Apollo, Fantauzzi has been on a mission to develop a solution to this problem. Apollo’s technology is a software platform, mobile application, and wearable device that sends vibrations through the body which send the brain a signal of safety. Fantauzzi explains that the vibrations create and amplify the same benefits that mindfulness, meditation, and other relaxation practices bring, but without requiring the user to do a thing. In a world where we’re constantly bombarded by new emails, text messages, phone calls, and the expectations and responsibilities tied to them all, it might make sense to have a solution that’s quite literally tied to our ankles (or wrists) like the wearable Apollo device. Fantauzzi makes for an interesting and exciting conversation, reporting on the results from clinical studies using the Apollo technology, explaining the features built in to the app that might eliminate your need for an alarm clock, discussing the importance of heart rate variability and how this technology can help you improve yours over time, and describing how the app will use biometric data to curate every user’s experience.

Technology for the Modern Age: An App and Wearable Device for Treating and Preventing Burnout—Kathryn Fantauzzi—Apollo
Finding Genius Podcast
Despite the human ability to adapt to new and changing environments, our bodies simply weren’t designed to live in the modern world. Take for instance the physiological stress response: you see a bear, your heart starts pumping harder and faster, your system fills with adrenaline, digestion gets put on hold, and all of your body’s attention is focused on survival. In this day and age, our bodies are being triggered to show this stress response multiple times a day—whether, during an argument with a significant other, the ping of an email notification that you know is from your boss or an alert for a new exam result on your college account. We’re constantly bombarded by signals, messages, requests, expectations, and demands, and we’ve entered a state of chronic stress as a result. The result? Burnout, a term recently recognized by the World Health Organization as an actual medical syndrome characterized by exhaustion, the inability to focus, a feeling of disengagement from our surroundings, and the inability to fall asleep. CEO and co-founder of Apollo, Kathryn Fantauzzi, joins the podcast to discuss a potential remedy for burnout, which is a software platform, mobile app, and wearable device that sends vibrations to the body which the brain interprets as safety, and when you feel safe, your heart rate and breathing even out, which makes it easier to concentrate, feel calm, and fall asleep. Fantauzzi explains that this technology harnesses and amplifies the benefits of practices such as mindfulness and meditation without requiring the user to do anything other than wear the device on their wrist or ankle. In clinical studies, users have shown a 25% improvement in cognitive performance and accuracy under stress, as well as the ability to fall asleep faster, and improve heart rate variability, an indicator of the body’s overall resilience and recovery from stress. And since the software is integrated with Apple Healthkit, it can pull from a user’s biometric data to curate the best solution for their experience with burnout.
