Reliefband 2.0 Wearable Motion Sickness Device

Оценок: 81 | Просмотров: 9013
On the market since the mid 1990's, the FDA-cleared Reliefband wearable therapeutic neuromodulation device may be worth a try for motion-sick-prone passengers, and the company recently released the next-gen device called the Reliefband 2.0. The redesigned device loses the drab clinical styling and now looks much like a cutting edge fitness tracker. Aviation Consumer Editor Larry Anglisano ordered one and prepared this overview video of its design and feature set.

I've had the 1st generation ReliefBand for years on my sailboat, and it DOES provide some relief. I could stay in shape way longer in rough conditions than usual, as long as I use the band 30 minutes or so before departing. You have to make sure the band fits at the right place on the wrist. Bigger turn-off is that it's very difficult to keep the band on the right spot when you're fighting with your sails, your balance, etc.

I have the 1st generation of this device, and as a sufferer of motion sickness, I can personally attest to the relief it provides. I personally think it is an inner ear issue. Regardless of the cause, the symptoms of motion sickness are real, and if you suffer from it, it is not only uncomfortable (or downright miserable) during a flight, it can take several of hours to wear off, so it can really ruin what would otherwise have been a great adventure. It has made a believer out of me. Whether the relief is from the placebo effect or not doesn't matter to me. How much would I pay to not feel like that when flying with my husband and ruining our adventures? Aviation is not a cheap hobby. $175 to allow your friends and loved ones to enjoy time with you in small airplanes is a small price to pay in my book.

Everyone knows this has absolutely no actual effect, right? It works as well against nausea as wearing a blue shirt or wearing rabbit ears. People will give money away for the stupidest stuff.

Absolute pseudoscientific nonsense

Yea.... the bs detector is off the charts on this one. I hope it's wrong, but historically it usually isn't.

What's that klaxon sound? Oh, just my bullshit detector going off. This study says placebo. Save your money for AvGas. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15018290 Big clue is that there are no side effects. No side effects = no therapeutic effect. Hope AVweb was well paid for this.

This is a new product overview and we said it may be worth a try. We've had the original model in the flight bag since the 1990's and it's worked for some passengers, but not all, which is in line with what others report. If it might save the distraction of a sick passenger puking in the interior, we're for it.

Once again a 'trendy' company doesn't even sell to Europe... Or does someone know where to buy it in Europe?
5putput (9 месяцев назад)
Thanks so much!! I'll order one right away. EDIT: reliefband.com order form only has United States and Canada as possible countries. reliefband.ie site doesn't exist, it only says: "coming soon". No reliefband uk site that I could find. I'm hoping to order the reliefband 2.0 to Scandinavia. I would've thought it's not that hard to arrange: any European country as a site base and then shipping to EU countries... Or sell through a European ebay or amazon site. Well, I'll sit tight and wait to see if it'll be available to order here some day.

Reliefband says the product is available in Ireland and Great Britain when ordered directly on its website reliefband.com.

As someone that gets motion sickness often, I'm interested in the device, but I'm very skeptical.

I bought it for my cruise in April, I get car, air, and seasick, and this worked perfectly, when I started to feel nauseous I just turned it up! It did sting a little at the higher settings, but was still better than being sick.

Michael O I was skeptical too and bought the 1st gen version last year after getting sick on every flight I was on. Ginger only worked half the time and I was throwing up when getting off the plane and was desperate. I figured what the heck. If I spend $70 and it works, i would’ve spent $500 on it. If It didn’t work, I’ve spent more money on a nice meal in one night, so I decided to try it. Best decision I ever made. I don’t get sick on planes anymore. And it’s helped my wife’s sister with morning sickness. It really is magic and I’m really glad I bought it!

$175 for the device vs scrubbing vomit off your GTN 750. Not much thinking needed there.
Dyl Connaway (9 месяцев назад)
RegressMeNot How about $175 plus scrubbing vomit off the 750? Because that is what you’ll get... this thing has zero actual effect. You will get the same results wearing polka dotted underwear against nausea as you would wearing the device.
