Reliefband — an innovative company in wearable technology designed to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting — has just released the newest addition to its line of FDA-cleared, anti-nausea wearables: The Reliefband Flex. This water-resistant device is powered by replaceable lithium coin batteries that deliver over 350 hours of use, twice that of the Reliefband Classic. The current gen of the Reliefband Flex is designed to provide all-natural, drug-free prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting associated with scenarios like motion sickness, morning sickness during pregnancy, chemotherapy, anxiety, hangovers, physician-diagnosed migraines, and as an adjunct to antiemetics in treating post-operative nausea.
The product comes with the popular Flex-Fit comfort band and can also be attached seamlessly to an Apple or Samsung smartwatch using its interchangeable bands and smartwatch connectors. It can be situated on the underside of the wrist, allowing users to wear their smartwatch on top of their wrist while still receiving continuous anti-nausea relief in one wearable device. With its discreet styling and flexible wearability options, it can be an interesting option to address the treatment needs of professionals, travelers, and anyone who needs to manage nausea.
Reliefband’s patented technology has been developed over 20 years of clinical research, using accurately programmed pulses with a specific waveform, frequency, and intensity to stimulate the median nerve on the underside of the wrist; this activity uses the body’s natural neural pathways to block waves of nausea produced by the stomach. The wearable allows users to choose from five different intensity levels, this way they will be able to customize their experience based on individual needs.
Drug-free therapy is highly effective without the side effects associated with anti-nausea medicine, such as drowsiness and constipation. All Reliefband devices can be used before or after nausea and vomiting symptoms start and can be left on as long as symptoms persist. The new Reliefband Flex complements the company’s lineup of successful anti-nausea wearables, which includes the water-resistant Reliefband Sport, Reliefband Classic, Reliefband Premier, and Reliefband 50 Hour (an entry-level wearable that provides an economical solution for shorter-term nausea relief).
