Did you know that motion sickness affects 40 million people in the United States? I certainly didn’t know the number was that high, but as someone who suffers from motion sickness myself, I can tell you – it stinks.
Motion sickness means that no matter what I do or what tricks I try, I get nauseous within minutes of being in a moving environment where I am not the principal operator. Taxi cabs, planes, and trains are the worst, but even turning around in the passenger seat of the car to hand my kids a milk box in the backseat can trigger it.
Over the years, I’ve pretty much tried everything. Ginger tablets. Over-the-counter medications. Getting into a position and trying not to move. Positive self-talk. You name it, I’ve tried it.
But nothing that I’ve tried so far has helped me well enough for me to chat about it…until now.
Over the holiday break, I was offered the opportunity to test out a clinically proven, FDA cleared, wearable technology device for the treatment of nausea and vomiting associated with travel or motion sickness.
“Reliefband is an FDA cleared, clinically tested, doctor approved wearable technology life changing device to help control nausea & motion sickness. It’s worn on the underside of your wrist, sending gentle pulses to rebalance the signals that cause nausea and vomiting so you’re back in control of your body in a few minutes. With 5 different settings, you can adjust the pulses to match your body’s needs.”
What’s that you say? There’s a device that can help me from puking my brains out each time I turn around in the car to answer questions from my kids? There’s something that will help me not spend the entire car ride feeling nauseous and dizzy?
Apparently, Reliefband could do all of these things and I wanted to test it out.
I waited until I was good and nauseous before I tried the band for the first time. I wanted to make sure that I was able to judge the product while I was at my worst. So I waited until we were going to the Bronx Zoo. I knew we would be stuck in stop-and-go traffic much of the car ride and that my kids would have me turning around to hand them a variety of things the entire time. Me in the passenger seat, turning around to answer questions from my kids 800 times, and my husband’s foot on-and-off the brake pedal was the perfect recipe for motion sickness.
As I suspected, I was feeling quite dreadful when we arrived. Cue nausea, dizziness, sweating and a lovely headache. I’ve been through this a million times before, so I knew I could ride it out and the fresh air would help alleviate my symptoms, but I wanted more. I fished out the Reliefband kit from the depths of my pocketbook and applied the Conductivity Gel to the underside of my wrist. Then, I placed the device on the gel and tightened the band. Then I turned it on and off we went.
To be perfectly honest, I was a little bit freaked out when I turned the device on. It really does zap you and although it doesn’t hurt, it’s a kind of tingling sensation. When the device is on properly, you can feel the pulse go right down your middle finger and into your palm. At first, it’s all you can think about, but after a few seconds, you don’t remember that the Reliefband is on.
I don’t know exactly when I started feeling better. It was rather subtle. One minute, I felt hideous. The next, I felt better. My nausea and dizziness were gone. It was all good. In fact, it was so good that I was too scared to take the band off and left it on for the rest of the day. And since I didn’t get car sick on the car ride home, I’d say it was a success. Wouldn’t you?
I also wanted to mention that the Reliefband is very discreet. To anyone who didn’t know what it was, it simply looks like a watch which I thought was pretty cool. There’s no need to let anyone know that I’m a big old goober that gets sick every time I get in the car, right?
Reliefband worked so well that I plan on sharing it with my sister the next time she travels. Motion sickness runs in our family – boo! – and I’d love to get her input on this device too.
