The method of viewing a stable horizon is a well-proven seasick relief technique recorded back in ancient Greek, Roman, and Chinese literature.
Stage one: Using technology - Let’s get you feeling better again
See-LEVEL is removing the visual disturbance of the vessel. The brain is soon fooled again. The body stabilizes, generally within 15 minutes and relief is felt. See-LEVEL has reversed the person's seasick symptoms without any medication or side effects.
See-LEVEL places you in a virtual reality environment. A calming scene especially designed just for Seasickness. You have a 360°view across a lake to a horizon, where the sky, mountains, and water combine. this is stable regardless of the boats or persons' head movement. It’s an old trick, we’re just presenting it to you in a new controlled way
Stage two: Using technology to get your sea legs (Habituation)
Our challenge: The person is feeling better now after stage one, but the journey ahead is long and their symptoms may come back when they remove the See-LEVEL headset. We’re going to apply some patented technology to train you, to get your sea legs, using Habituation. This is a psychological learning process wherein there is a decrease in response to a stimulus after being repeatedly exposed to it
See-LEVEL measures the vessel’s movement using the installed SLDC (See-LEVEL data collector) computer and sends the movement data to the MVR (modified virtual reality) on the headset. The data is slowly introduced to the environment as if they were viewing the vessel itself, but with controlled Heave, Pitch, and Roll. Our habituation training is very successful, as getting your sea legs is far easier to achieve if learned in a controlled environment.
See-LEVEL’s point of difference is the speed of recovery, our trials have shown that when applied quickly, the person's symptoms reverse within 15 minutes. If seasickness is left to long with no action, then the symptoms will only increase.
What causes seasickness?
Seasickness is a result of a conflict in the inner ear, where the human balance mechanism resides and is caused by a vessel’s erratic motion on the water. Inside the cabin of a rocking boat, for example, the inner ear detects changes in both up-and-down and side-to-side acceleration as one’s body bobs along with the boat. But, since the cabin moves with the passenger, one’s eyes register a relatively stable scene. Agitated by this perceptual incongruity, the brain responds with a cascade of stress-related hormones that can ultimately lead to nausea, anxiety, heart rate increase, body temperature changes, and unfortunately vomiting.
