Never been air sick or sea sick before but on my last cruise I got really ill. I still believe it was something I ate but just to make sure this time, do Sea Bands really work and if so should you use on one or each wrist?My partner suffers at least once on every cruise from being sea sick. Sometimes badly..other times just a bit of an upset tummy. I never get sea sick.. We have not used the band, however we are getting one for our next cruise as we know the sea on that cruise will probably be the roughest we have been though.

I always wear the sea bands when we fly. Last year when we were cruising to Alaska & the ship was rocking horribly, but because I wore my sea bands, I didn't get sick. I do get motion sickness quite easily, so they do work! You do have to wear one on each wrist.

I will wear a sea band and my clone won't.
Bought one of these but haven't tried it yet.These are what I use all the time, husband as well. You need to get used to them and follow directions, but they work fantastically well. They also work for stomach flu bugs, drugs that make you feel sick, and morning sickness.
ReliefBand Explorer - Motion Sickness Protection
- 46 customer reviews.
The ReliefBand(R) Explorer device is a watch-like device worn on the ventral side of the wrist for use in the treatment of nausea and vomiting due to pregnancy, postoperative nausea, chemotherapy, and motion sickness. When activated, the device emits a low-level electrical current across two small electrodes on its underside. The ReliefBand(R) device is the first patented, commercially available Nausea-Vomiting device to reach the clinical marketplace.
Now with the ReliefBand(R) device, you have more opportunity to enjoy flying, boating, amusement park rides and other types of travel and entertainment without having motion sickness spoil your good time.
The non-prescription ReliefBand(R) device is unlike anything else sold for motion sickness. It offers numerous advantages. First, it is Drug Free. Because it is not a drug, you won't have the headache, drowsiness, dizziness or other side effects typical of most medicinal remedies on the market. Also, instead of having to take something several hours ahead of time, the ReliefBand can be used any time, even after nausea symptoms start. Second, there are no restrictions on consumption of food, beverages or medications with the use of ReliefBand. And finally, unlike medicines, pressure bands, and other passive remedies, with the ReliefBand device you control the level and duration of relief. You can actually feel it helping to control your motion sickness.
Worn like a bracelet or a watch, the ReliefBand device uses gentle electrical signals to stimulate a specific nerve in the underside of the wrist. There are five levels of stimulation; adjust the dial to the highest level that feels comfortable. By stimulating the body's nervous system in this fashion, the ReliefBand can be used to relieve the nausea and vomiting symptoms associated with motion sickness.
Do not use if wearing cardiac pacemaker.
- Rotary dial adjusts output to one of five power settings.
- Light indicates operation and low battery condition.
The unlimited use Reusable ReliefBand operates for approximately 140 hours at power level 2 before you need to change the batteries. Then it's just a matter of picking up two 3V lithium batteries (CR2025) at your local drug store or where camera batteries are sold. The Reusable unit ensures that protection from motion sickness is always as close as your flight bag.
Batteries and conductivity gel included.
On our cruise last year I gotta a little sea sick. Don't want to do that again. And I have heard since we are sailing out of Seattle there is a slight change we could have some rough waters so I don't want to take the chance again and be sick on our awesome Alaskan cruise. So if anyone could please tell me where can we buy the Sea Bands. Thank you very much.
Can you buy the bands at any local drugstore?Yes.. you should be able to buy them at any drug store.. CVS, Walgreens, etc.
These are what I use all the time, husband as well. You need to get used to them and follow directions, but they work fantastically well. They also work for stomach flu bugs, drugs that make you feel sick, and morning sickness.the elastic type bothers me too but i still wear them. I never seen this one you displayed....where do you get them? They look better than the elastic ones.
I would never travel without them.
I tried the elastic type and they were very painful because of tightness.
