Edge On The Clock: FDA Approves NightWare System To Treat PTSD Patients

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The FDA has approved a NightWare system to treat PTSD patients with Apple watches.

The app also vibrates when it senses the patient is in the middle of nightmare and can gently wake that person up. NightWare can only be downloaded with a prescription.

Plus, just in time for those holiday socially-distanced white elephant parties: you can buy ketchup-flavored candy canes.
