Newly Manufactured Reliefbands for Motion Sickness

Question regarding the ReliefBand Motion Sickness Device 2 Free Batteries.

Q: "Dear safehomeproducts, Are these the new models (of Reliefbands) or the old ones? On their website it shows it was updated in March 2008."

Answer: These are newly manufactured Reliefbands, the Explorer model with the elastic band. The new Reliefband was shipped to us in March 2008. We are happy to once again offer our customers an FDA cleared, no-drug, safe product to prevent or to relieve nausea and vomitting from motion sickness. The Reliefband is worn on either or both wrists. Once activated, relief is usually obtained within 15 minutes or less. Although customers tell us they use Reliefbands on younger children, FDA testing was not done on children under the age of 12.

The Reliefband product line was manufactured by Woodside Biomedical for many years. Woodside sold product rights, etc. to Abbott Laboratories. Two years ago in April, Safe Home Products received a letter stating that production and sales would cease later that month. We stocked as heavily as we could but still ran out about 9 months ago.

The new owner/manufacturer is Neurowave Medical Technologies. We continue to give each customer two free batteries with each purchase. Battery life is generally 144 hours but no one wants to be without this wonderful device when they are on a cruise, spending the day at an amusement park or riding in an airplane or car. We also sell conductive gel and conductive gel and extra batteries in separate packages.

Thank you for your question.
