Motion Sickness is an ailment that many of us cope with at some point in our lives, be it during pregnancy, a jeep ride, or upon entering the world of virtual reality. The Reliefband Neurowave is a FDA approved wearable device to combat the rigors of nausea from morning and motion sickness. This opens up a whole new world of activities to people whose motion sickness prohibited them from participating.
How does it work? It sends out pulses in highly specific waveforms with an intensity and frequency that is meant to modulate the median nerve on the underside of the wrist. The technical term for this approach is neuromodulation. It is so effective because it isn’t masking the symptom of nausea, rather it is using the body’s natural neural pathways to block the nausea and stop it in its tracks.
As a wearable, it offers a sleek look with a J-shape as a smart band for comfortable wearing. The band is designed specifically to get at that median nerve, and to do it with style. Being that the ReliefBand Neurowave may be needed in a variety of settings from leisure activities to business settings, the look of the band is fashionable. Also of note, is that they use hypoallergenic 316L Surgical Steel as a contact interface for ultimate comfort. The display face allows for control of 10 intensity settings that can be moved up or down depending on the gravity of the situation’s needs.
You can look for this incredible device in Spring of this year when it will be priced at about $150 at Reliefband. The device is fully rechargeable and it will pay for itself in Dramamine costs alone over time.
