Frequent Questions


About Ebb

Will I need a prescription from my doctor?
Yes, ask your sleep physician or primary care physician for a prescription. Any licensed physician or nurse practitioner can write a prescription for Ebb.
Has it been clinically tested?
Yes, three trials provided evidence for safety and efficacy in reducing the latency to stage 1 and 2 sleep. These studies have all been reviewed by the FDA.
How often does the fluid cartridge and headband need replaced?
The circulating fluid in the Ebb system naturally evaporates. After about three months, the Bedside Controller will automatically indicate that the Fluid Cartridge needs to be replaced. The Ebb Replenish kit includes both a forehead pad and fluid cartridge.
How does Ebb Insomnia Therapy work?
Brain images have found that the front part of the brain (“frontal cortex”) stays very active in people with insomnia when they are trying to get to sleep. The use of precise cooling to keep the forehead at a constant cool and soothing temperature has shown to decrease activity in the front of the brain.
Can I control the temperature?
Yes, for your comfort you can make small temperature adjustments within the  therapeutic range.
Does insurance pay for Ebb Insomnia Therapy?
Currently, there is no reimbursement from health insurance companies, nor do we expect any in the near future. However, Ebb should be an eligible expense for your Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account. You can try Ebb Insomnia Therapy for 30 nights to see if it is right for you.
Will I see results the first time I use my Ebb Insomnia Therapy?
Ebb Insomnia Therapy is designed to facilitate the relearning of new sleep habits. Although some people will notice benefits the first night they use it, for others it will take a little time to experience benefits.
Should I use Ebb Insomnia Therapy every night?
You may wear Ebb every night. Wearing Ebb each night, along with healthy sleep habits, will help your body adjust to a new healthy sleep/wake rhythm.
What temperature setting should I start with?
For initial use, set your temperature control on P7. It could take up 10 minutes to reach the chosen temperature profile. You may adjust the temperature setting at any time.
Can’t I just use an ice pack?
Unlike an ice pack, the temperature is comfortable (not ice-cold), and the device cools the forehead at a precise clinically demonstrated temperature range throughout the night.
