The ReliefBand® Medical Device is a tiny “electrical pulse generator” that is worn on the under side of the wrist. It relieves symptoms associated with Motion Sickness (nausea and vomiting) using nerve stimulation technology. Technically referred to as “neuromodulation,” the ReliefBand® is specifically programmed to stimulate the nerves in the body responsible for regulating the various stimulus mechanisms causing motion sickness.
When activated, the device emits gentle electrical impulses to the underside of the wrist. These intermittent signals create a “tingling” sensation in the palm and middle fingers, indicating the device is working and stimulating the appropriate median nerve.
The FDA has cleared the ReliefBand® Medical Device for sale over the counter and is specifically indicated for the treatment of nausea and vomiting associated with Motion Sickness.
