This tip tested by the French Navy to fight against travel sickness

Do you get car sickness? Well maybe soon it will be ancient history!

If going on vacation is often a pleasant moment, everything is not always rosy either. And for good reason, there are many things that can complicate your trip, especially if it is long. This is for example the case of travel sickness, which affects many people. And everyone can be affected, since children are not the only ones who can be affected by this problem. However, the latter can quickly become very disabling, but fortunately solutions exist to limit the damage.

A new method

And indeed, even the army has looked into the question, and particularly the Marine Nationale. Because even the most trained soldiers can sometimes suffer from seasickness, the same as car sickness. And now researchers have developed an astonishing device to combat this phenomenon. The latter is called Boarding Light and takes the form of several LED columnswhich create an intertial horizon for sailors. Which allows them to suffer less from seasickness when it is in operation.

Conclusive results

In total, these are 18 LED columns one meter high which are installed, with the lower part off and the other on. This tricks the brain into seeing a horizon to cling to in order to avoid being seasick when the boat is moving. And the results are rather conclusive since it worked for no less than 75% of the soldiers tested. It remains to be seen how to adapt it for motion sickness in a car, for example.
