Reliefband gains distribution through ABC, Good Neighbor Pharmacy
HORSHAM, Pa. — Reliefband, a wearable, drug-free solution for nausea, on Tuesday announced a distribution partnership with AmerisourceBergen.
“Today’s healthcare environment necessitates a partner that has the size, reach and scale to deliver a product to patients at the right time,” stated Nick Spring, CEO of Reliefband Technologies. “This new relationship will significantly strengthen and grow our business, increasing our ability to provide innovative solutions to our customers.”
The Reliefband device is worn on the underside of the wrist, and uses the body’s own neural pathways to naturally regulate the mechanisms causing nausea without drugs. When activated, the Reliefband device emits gentle pulses through the skin stimulating the median nerve at the P6 pressure point located on the underside of the wrist. This stimulation generates a signal that travels through the body’s central nervous system to the higher emetic center of the brain. The signals modulate the neural pathways between the brain and the stomach, via the vagus nerve to relieve nausea.
This hospital tested and clinically proven therapy works as well as a leading prescription anti-emetic medication, without side effects such as drowsiness or constipation, Reliefband stated.
