Yes: Taken from the fda-approved package insert: "clinical results: in 195 adult subjects of different racial origins who participated in clinical efficacy studies at sea or in a controlled motion environment, there was a 75% reduction in the incidence of motion-induced nausea and vomiting." these results also held for postop patients getting the patch.
