Reliefband Conductivity Gel for use with Reliefband devices. Each tube contains 7.5 mL (0.25 oz) of hypoallergenic conductivity gel. Reliefband Conductivity Gel improves effectiveness of Reliefband devices, keeping nerve stimulation active to control nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, morning sickness, chemotherapy and postoperative.
Before applying gel, locate the P6 point on the mediam nerve in either wrist. The nerve is located between the two tendons on the underside of the wrist – two finger widths from the first crease in the wrist. After locating the nerve, clean the area and apply a small drop of gel. Spread the gel in a circle about the size of a large coin with an even sheen.
For best results, reapply every 2 to 3 hours or when nerve stimulation decreases.
Does Reliefband® work? arrow
Yes, as evidenced by numerous and robust clinical studies, extensive hospital use by prescribing doctors, and positive feedback from consumers all of which demonstrate Reliefband’s efficacy in the relief of nausea, retching and vomiting from motion sickness, morning sickness, chemotherapy and as an adjunct to antiemetic therapy in reducing post-operative nausea.
Q: How does Reliefband® work? arrow
Reliefband® generates a proprietary pulse that stimulates the median nerve which is located on the underside of the wrist. These signals travel through the body’s nervous system to the part of the brain which controls nausea, retching and vomiting. The signals have a rebalancing effect, normalizing nerve messages from the brain to the stomach and reducing symptoms of nausea, retching and vomiting.
Q: Does Reliefband® work for other indications such as hangovers? arrow
Reliefband® is indicated for use in the prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting due to motion sickness, chemotherapy and morning sickness associated with pregnancy. Reliefband® is also indicated as an adjunct to antiemetics in reducing postoperative nausea. Reliefband is now approved to prevent and treat nausea associated with hangovers, anxiety and physician diagnosed migraines.
Q: Do I have to use the gel for it to work? arrow
Yes, the gel provides a more comfortable and effective delivery of therapy. You should use a drop about the size of a small pea. The drop should be spread in a circular motion onto the skin until a sheen remains, covering an area the size of a large coin (quarter) at the intended contact location on the underside of your wrist.
