Do you suffer from Nausea caused by motion sickness? Does morning sickness keep you away from having a normal routine and enjoying leisurely pursuits such as cruising, fishing, amusement rides or staying in the VR game? If you answer yes, you’re among the 60 million Americans who are suffering.
Surprisingly, 10% of Americans are genetically prone to motion sickness, so they either avoid traveling or end up missing out on opportunities to advance their careers.
Feelings of shame and embarrassment often impact a person’s self-esteem which denies them a certain degree of control over their lives.
Nick Spring, CEO of Reliefband Technologies stated:
The Reliefband NeurowaveTM was developed in response to customers who told us they had given up hope of controlling their nausea. Their lives are greatly impacted by this motion sickness. They avoid any activity or situation that brings on symptoms. We wanted to help those who are sick of feeling sick by making a drug-free device that is easy-to-use and elegant to wear over long periods. This way they can start living their lives without the worry, embarrassment, discomfort and inconvenience nausea can bring.
Reliefband Technologies has a smarter and “drug-free” solution for these problems. Users don’t have to worry about any side-effects associated with wearing the Reliefband Neurowave, because of the company’s patented technology.
Neurowave looks as fashionable as any activity tracker or smartwatch, so users don’t have to worry about people knowing about its intended use.
Now, At CES 2017, Reliefband Technologies announces the Reliefband Neurowave smart band, the most advanced treatable wearable for nausea relief, designed to fit on your wrist just like a smartwatch.
Reliefband Neurowave adds better aesthetics and intuitive controls over its previous model and comes with the company’s proprietary built-in FDA-cleared patented technology, which sends accurately programmed pulses, waveforms, frequency, and intensity to modulate the median nerve on the underside of your wrist.
This particular technique referred to as “neuromodulation” makes use of the body’s natural neutral pathways to block the waves of nausea produced by the stomach.
The signals generated by the device travel through the body’s central nervous system and the higher emetic center of the brain. The signals modulate the neural pathways between the brain and the stomach, via the Vagus nerve, restoring normal gastric rhythm that relieves nausea.
Its innovative band architecture and ergonomic design make sure the contact with the median nerve provides better accuracy, reducing the chance of errors.
Moreover, this smart band for nausea treatment features a fully rechargeable battery and has ten settings of intensity which users can adjust accordingly.
Reliefband Neurowave becomes available in early Q2 of 2017 for around $150.
