In the questionnaire following Journey 2, participants were
asked to compare their perceived level of sickness between the two journeys. 76% of people
thought they felt sicker in the first journey. This tends to imply the variation between
translating from score to perception of how sick they felt. Nevertheless, 76% represents
three quarters of the participants feeling better in Journey 2 compared to Journey 1.
The reduced level of sickness score in Journey 1 is reconfirmed by the subjective
judgements of participants when they were asked to evaluate how effective TravelShades
were in alleviating their motion sickness at the end of the second journey. The feedback
from participants shows 87% of the participants thought TravelShades were effective,
ranging from slightly effective to very effective. (See figure below)
