Techstination feature for Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Whether it’s that family trip in the car, maybe a flight or out for a day on the water….lots of people run into problems with nausea.    There is some tech, though, that can come to the rescue.   Reliefband is an FDA cleared device that you wear on your wrist and it uses what the company calls neuromodulation to combat nausea symptoms…even from morning sickness.   Director of National Accounts Christine Fonock-Smith…

“It’s actually a class 2 medical device that was RX for years, we’re bringing it over the counter for the consumer now.  You wear it on the underside of your wrist and it stimulates your P6 pressure point in your wrist.”

All you feel is a slight tingling sensation in your fingers.   It really can help.  The Reliefband works on user replaceable coin cell batteries and sells for under 95 dollars.
