Anti-nausea wristbands are available in two forms:
One type is based on the ancient Chinese principle of acupressure. They have a small bump on an adhesive strip that is applied to the inner wrist. This product claims to be effective against nausea from motion sickness, morning sickness, postoperative nausea and chemotherapy related nausea. Examples of this type of product are Sea-Band or Round Trip Anti-Nausea Wristbands.
The second type is worn like a watch, except that the "face" is on the underside of the wrist. It emits a small electronic pulse to your inner wrist and claims to be effective against nausea caused by motion sickness. An example of this form of wristband is the Reliefband®


Anti-nausea wristbands are not covered, as they are a non-prescription item, available for purchase over the counter.
