Does See-LEVEL really work?
That’s the first question on many people’s minds, and one we wanted to answer through rigorous testing and research. In 2020 we commissioned research to assess how effective See-LEVEL was at reducing seasickness. Below is a summary of key findings.
80% of participants found that See-LEVEL reduced their seasickness symptoms.
Of the 22 participants who experienced seasickness, 20 found that See-LEVEL reduced their symptoms.
Nausea was the symptom with the greatest improvement.
The average nausea experienced by those who experienced seasickness dropped from 4 to 1.56, on a scale from 1-5 (with 5 being vomiting and 1 being normal).
Low levels of nausea were achieved after just 7.6 minutes
of wearing the headset, on average.
Heartrate was reduced by 15 beats per minute
after 1 minute of wearing the headset, on average.

About the study
Who was in the study?
22 people who experienced motion sickness were measured in the study.
What results were measured?
Heartrate data and a qualitative questionnaire were used to determine the effectiveness of See-LEVEL.
How it worked:
Participants were taken out on a boat in Lyttelton Harbour when swells were greater than 0.7m. Of the 26 original participants, 22 experienced seasickness symptoms. These 22 participants were each given the See-LEVEL headset to wear. To determine the effectiveness of See-LEVEL, each person had their heartrate data monitored while on the vessel and filled out a questionnaire immediately after returning to shore.
