Decreasing Motion Sickness by Mixing Different Techniques

The authors investigated the effectiveness of galvanic cutaneous stimulation (GCS) and auditory stimulation (AS) together and separately in mitigating motion sickness (MS). Forty-eight drivers (twenty-two men; mean age = 21.58 years) participated in a driving simulation experiment. The authors compared the total scores of the Simulator Sickness Questionnaire (SSQ) across four different stimulation conditions (GCS, AS, Mixed GCS-AS and no stimulation as a baseline condition). The authors provided evidence that mixing techniques mitigates MS owing to an improvement in body balance; furthermore, mixing techniques improves driving behavior more effectively than GCS and AS in isolation. The authors encourage the use of the two techniques together to decrease MS.
