Reliefband Technologies is introducing for 2020 two new series of its wristbands that provide relief from motion sickness, morning sickness, post-operative nausea and nausea caused by chemotherapy.
The wristbands stimulate the median nerve at the underside of the wrist with mild pulses, which the company says rebalance and normalize nerve signals from the brain to the stomach to relieve nausea symptoms.
The new Reliefband Travel series (March-April availability) includes three time-allotted devices: 48 hours ($39.99), 72 hours ($49.99) and seven days ($69.99).
The new Sport rechargeable model is the company’s first waterproof device ($149.99), rated at IPX 6 and submersible in up to six meters (18 feet) of water. The Sport takes interchangeable straps, and at mid-year, says Reliefband, a strap that will hold the device while also holding an Apple Watch or a FitBit atop the wearer’s wrist will be made available (price to be announced).
The company is also planning to offer wireless chargers to its line as an accessory.
Reliefband also announced at the show that its entire line, including the $99.99 Classic (with a replaceable battery) and the industrial-design-look rechargeable Premier ($199.99), has now received FDA clearance for expanded usages beyond the aforementioned use cases; they are now FDA-cleared for nausea associated with anxiety, hangovers and physician-diagnosed migraines.
