I can confirm that. I had already posted about it somewhere some years back.

We have used it with success in my two kids but my wife got a huge skin irritation The kids had not any problem with it.

The thing looks like a watch and you can adjust the power of the electric shock to your sensitivity. I still have it somewhere but now the kids don't get seasick anymore and only my wife has a problem in bad weather....and she is just the one that cannot use the band
