Apollo Neuroscience is an American healthcare solutions company headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA. Apollo Neuroscience was founded in 2017 by Dr. David Rabin, MD PhD and Kathryn Fantauzzi.[1]Apollo is the first scientifically validated wearable system that has been demonstrated to improve heart rate variability using our sense of touch.[2]It incorporates vibration patterns to help the human body improve resilience to stress, sleep more deeply, and reach a state of calmness.[3][4][5]

Apollo was a finalist in SXSW Innovation awards in 2020 under the Wearable Tech category and was featured at the Consumer Electronics Summit Wearable Technology Summit in 2019 and 2020. [6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14]

Apollo Neurosceince’s invention is the world’s very first scientifically proven product that improves the human body’s resilience by modulating activity in the autonomic nervous system.[15][16][17][18] Apollo has been published in several media articles such as Entrepreneur, Men’s Health, Fox News, Healthista and Engadget, CBS, CNET, as well as popular podcasts like Dave Asprey's Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Drew, Ben Greenfield, and STEM talks. amongst others.[19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26]


Apollo Neuroscience is a joint venture of Kathryn Fantauzzi and her husband, Dr. Dave Rabin MD, PhD.[27]Dr. Rabin is a highly acclaimed psychiatrist and neuroscientist who specializes in the treatment of chronic stress and treatment-resistant mental illnesses.[28]Combining his expertise with that of his wife, Kathryn who specializes in tech commercialisation, marketing, and management, Apollo is steadfastly gaining recognition in the market.[29] Kathryn is the CEO of Apollo Neuroscience and is responsible for the successful introduction of Apollo into the world market.[30][31]

Dr. Dave Rabin began his research on the technology behind the Apollo wearable in 2014 at the University of Pittsburgh. After conducting trials in both the lab and in the real world, Apollo cleared the test with flying colors. These trials demonstrated that Apollo helps improve relaxation, focus, as well as cognitive and physical performance under stress along with heart rate variability.[32] Dr. Rabin and Kathryn joined forces to bring Apollo into the lives of the people presenting a non-habit forming and safe way to cope with stress and take control of their health.[33]

Apollo Neuroscience’s flagship product, the Apollo wearable, was introduced to the market in the beginning of year 2020, thus setting its sail to become a futuristic and user friendly device in the world of digital therapeutics.[34]


Apollo is a wearable device that comes with a number of advantages ranging from its safety, to it effects and usability.[35] Apollo is a flexible band which can be worn on one’s wrist or ankle.[36]This stress relief device syncs to mobile phones through an app, making it very easy to use. t comes with a year warranty and 30 day satisfaction guaranteed return policy.[37]

Apollo works on the science behind the natural response to touch in the skin. The mobile app provides 7 choices of vibration frequency patterns allowing the user to adjust energy levels by improving the balance between parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system activity.[38] Apollo is designed to restore a person’s body by improving parasympathetic activity over time, as measured by heart rate variability (HRV), by working according to the desired effect of the user, be it wakeful focus or restful sleep.[39]

Apollo also acts as a stress reliever, as it helps in improving resilience to stress.[40] This is done by its systematic approach of sending gentle vibrations that activates parasympathetic nervous response thus targeting the stress causing neurons.[41]
