Seasickness – There’s an App For That Too!
An app that claims to cure seasickness can now be downloaded to Apple and Android devices.
Nevasic – previously known as TravelWell – can be obtained from iTunes or Google Play and can alleviate seasickness by using sound, negating the need for any medication.
For those sea-faring folk who do experience sickness while out on the water, Nevasic can be downloaded to a smartphone or tablet and works by sound alone.
In its previous incarnation as TravelWell, the system got the thumbs up from round-the-world sailing hero Dame Ellen MacArthur.
It can treat vomiting and nausea and the makers of Nevasic, Daval Ltd say that it works “by addressing the symptoms through an accepted ‘emetic receptor/emitter’’- the vestibular system (our ears).
“Being drug-free there are no problems associated with drug suitability, contra-indication, overdose or abuse and there are no side effects.”
Once you have downloaded the app onto your mobile device (make sure it’s well charged before you set off) you will need a set of headphones to pick up the audio output of Nevasic.
Available from iTunes and Google Play, Nevasic costs £11.99 and when you stack up all the money you’ve spent on seasickness tablets over the years, it may be well work it.
