Ships are built to move through the water, not stand still. Although passengers of large cruise ships experience little seasickness on voyages, a stationary ship will need to employ various strategies to minimize wave motion and seasickness for their passengers. Anti-rolling gyroscopic technologies have been around for around 80 years, but barges and small cruise ships are still susceptible to significant wave motion, especially in stormy weather or in the event a swell. In addition to engineering solutions, we are seeking medical solutions that mitigate symptoms with few negative side-effects.
