Nevasic is now available to download onto your tablet from iTunes or Google Play

A new app available on iPhones, iPads and Android devices claims to cure seasickness without any drugs just using sound.

It’s called Nevasic, and has been around for some years, but is now available to download for the first time on your tablet.

The makers say sailing legend Ellen MacArthur has endorsed the system, but under its previous name TravelWell.

Nevasic deals with nausea and vomiting “by addressing the symptoms through an accepted ’emetic receptor/emitter’ – the vestibular system (our ears).”

“Being drug-free there are no problems associated with drug suitability, contra-indication, overdose or abuse and there are no side effects,” the makers, Daval Ltd, said.

For it to work, the app requires you to listen to its audio output through headphones.

You can download the app from iTunes and Google Play, where it’s priced at £11.99.
