Relief from Seasickness

Publish date:

The Reliefband 2.0 is a drug-free way to control the nausea caused by motion sickness, virtual-reality activities, chemotherapy and morning sickness. It does so via Neurowave technology, which emits programmed pulses. These pulses have specific waveforms, frequency and intensity to modulate the median nerve on the underside of the wrist. Known as neuromodulation, the stimulation uses the body’s natural neural pathways to block the waves of nausea that the stomach produces. Reliefband 2.0 has 10 intensity settings. $174.
