An Open-Label Trial to Combat Burnout Among Nurses


In an ongoing study of nursing staff at a long-term skilled nursing facility, nurses were given Apollo wearable prototypes to use voluntarily for 14 days to determine Apollo’s efficacy in combating burnout.

Nurses are given a clinically-validated psychological assessment that evaluates the core domains of sleep, mood, anxiety, energy, and stress to determine each nurse’s baseline stress score before they begin to use Apollo. Following 14 days of use, the staff is given the same survey again.

Results of cohort 1 (11 subjects) demonstrated an average reduction in stress scores of over 47% within just 2 weeks of using Apollo on their own. Reductions occurred across all core domains of sleep, mood, anxiety, energy, and stress.
