Horsham-Based Reliefband Technologies had a great showing at CES 2020, the Consumer Technology Association’s mega-trade show, with its wearable therapeutic device for treating nausea, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The company, which is currently preparing to launch two new models of its popular device, was recently approved by the FDA to market the product for additional indications, such as migraines and hangovers.
While it looks like a watch, the Reliefband has its innovative technology attached to the underside of the wrist. The device uses neuromodulation to stimulate nerves and prevent or provide relief from nausea and vomiting.
Reliefband Technologies CEO Rich Ransom presented the company’s new $150 Reliefband Sport model at CES.
“It was crazy,” said Ransom. “We had an unveiling event at Mandalay Bay. It was three-and-a-half hours nonstop of people coming by – some who knew us and some who didn’t.”
The model, which is the company’s first waterproof device, is set to debut mid-year. Other features include a long-lasting rechargeable battery, automatic shutdown when not in use, and six levels of intensity.
“This was really the hit of the show,” said Ransom.
