How Reliefband Works

by Reliefband | October 26, 2017

Do you suffer from motion or morning sickness? It’s awful to live with, isn’t it!

If you’re new to Reliefband®, we believe you’re about to meet your favorite piece of technology.

Reliefband® is wearable technology that puts you in control of treating nausea, retching, and vomiting associated with morning sickness and motion sickness—without drugs and without delay.

How It Works

Reliefband® is worn on the wrist, with the band holding the device to the underside of the wrist.

When it’s turned on, it releases a specific pattern of pulses, like beats on a drum, that stimulate a nerve under the skin called the median nerve.

These pulses create a signal, which pulses through the body’s nervous system to the part of the brain that controls nausea, retching, and vomiting. This area is known as the dorsal vagal complex.

The pulses quiet and normalize the nerve messages that travel along what’s called the vagus nerve, from the brain to the stomach. This relieves the symptoms of nausea, retching, and vomiting caused by motion or morning sickness.

Reliefband®. It’s stunning technology that will change your life, so you can live life in full motion.
