Motion Sickness Induced Nausea and Vomiting (MSNV) is one of the most common medical conditions to occur while traveling. It is estimated that as many as 1/3 of the population experience nausea and vomiting (NV) every year. Certain travel settings are more probable to cause motion sickness than others, but MSNV is more pronounced for those traveling by plane, car or boat, where the physical sensation and equilibrium imbalance can cause motion sickness.
MSNV is characterized by nausea and vomiting as well as dizziness, fatigue, paleness, headaches, and other displeasing and often debilitating symptoms. In general, symptoms usually stop when the stimuli that cause it cease, but in some cases symptoms can persist for days.
The RBMD™-MSNV (Motion Sickness induced Nausea and Vomiting) is an FDA cleared, fast acting, drug-free treatment for that allows you to TAKE CONTROL. Simply turn on the device for relief of MSNV symptoms. When symptoms subside, the device is easily turned off until needed again. If you know an activity will cause MSNV, you can start the RBMD™ 30 minutes prior to the activity to help avoid symptoms from starting. The RBMD™-MSNV allows you the power to TAKE CONTROL of your treatment and get relief when and where you need it most.
The RBMD™-MSNV uses a proprietary and patented neuromodulation technology known as Nerve Stimulation Therapy™ (NST™). NST™ creates a therapeutic effect by emitting gentle, uniquely programmed electrical impulses to stimulate the median nerve on the underside of the wrist. These electrical neural impulses (specific in waveform, frequency, and intensity) travel through the central nervous system to the higher emetic center in the brain.
It is theorized that once the RBMD™-MSNV produced neural signals reach the emetic center, they act to positively modulate the various anti-nausea and vomiting feedback mechanisms and neural pathways, restoring the gastric rhythms in the stomach back to normal (via modulation of the vagus nerve). By positively modulating these control systems, the RBMD™-MSNV safely uses the body’s own natural neural control pathways to relieve symptoms of MSNV.
The RBMD™-MSNV is the first application from Neurowave Medical Technology’s patented technology platform to receive FDA clearance for the indication of motion sickness induced nausea and vomiting.
