What is motion sickness? 

kinetosis kinetosis
From the mildest yawning to the most severe nausea, the consequences of motion sickness are diverse in their manifestations and intensity. Known as seasickness, air sickness or naupathy, kinetosis is caused by a sensory mismatch between the different components of the balance sense ; more precisely a perception difference between the peripheral vision and the vestibular system of the inner ear. When a passenger is in a moving vehicle, his vision is confined: it does not perceive enough information about the movement in which the body is embarked. The inner ear system, on the other hand, constantly senses accelerations and other body rotations.

A conflict between the eye and the inner ear

This discordance creates a crisis situation for the brain, which the latter will try to solve by all means, causing headaches, dizziness, cold sweats, etc... The urgency to resolve this crisis pushes the body to get rid of ancillary tasks such as digestion; hence the vomiting well known to the most sensitive people, which can lead in the most serious cases to critical dehydration or even coma.
Faced with this situation, some individuals prioritize information from the inner ear on their own, after a more or less rapid period of learning: this is the phenomenon of amarinage. Others will have more difficulty in managing this contrary information and will face the symptoms of kinetosis.
To fight motion sickness most effectively, vision must therefore be synchronised with the perceptions of the vestibular system. It is precisely for this reason that Boarding Glasses is the best solution available!
