FDA Clears Indications for Nausea and Vomiting Related to Physician-Diagnosed Migraines as well as Anxiety and Hangovers

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Reliefband Technologies LLC, an innovator in wearable technology that prevents and treats nausea and vomiting symptoms, announced its Reliefband® family of wearable therapeutic devices have received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded indication clearance for nausea and vomiting associated with anxiety, hangovers and physician-diagnosed migraines.

The expanded use indications were approved for Reliefband products including the Classic and Premier models, as well as the new Reliefband Travel and Reliefband Sport models unveiled today at CES 2020. The expanded indications join Reliefband's existing FDA-approved indications for symptoms associated with motion sickness, chemotherapy, morning sickness and nausea from postoperative surgery (as an adjunct to antiemetics).

Reliefband is an over-the-counter transdermal neuromodulation device that is applied to the underside of the wrist. Reliefband works by emitting gentle electrical pulses that stimulate the underlying median nerve. The signals generated on the underside of the wrist then flow to the central nervous system where they work, via the vagus nerve, to normalize stomach rhythms that cause nausea and prevent it.

"There are more than 38 million people in the U.S. who suffer migraines and the most common associated symptoms are nausea and vomiting. These newly-cleared indications mark an important step in our mission to mitigate the serious health issues and utter misery associated with nausea," explained Rich Ransom, President and CEO of Reliefband Technologies, LLC. "We will continue to innovate our Reliefband technology, providing relief to those who suffer debilitating symptoms stemming from migraines, hangovers, anxiety and more."

Reliefband will demonstrate the new Travel and Sport wearable devices and its entire family of products at CES 2020 from January 7-10 at the Sands Expo Convention Center, Tech West booth #46052 in the Wearables section and at CES Unveiled at Shorelines Exhibit Hall, Mandalay Bay on Sunday, January 5 from 5:00pm to 8:30pm at table #231.
