Quell Wearable Pain Reliefer Demoed at CES 2015 – Details




Medical science application of wearable technologies are always appreciated by people in the community, while there aren’t those of available in the current state but those that do has good a quite application.


At CES 2015, there is one such product showcased by NeuroMetrix Inc. Called Quell. It is a wearable that attaches to your upper calf and promises to make chronic pains go away within 15 minutes of putting it on. It takes time-tested TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) technology to the consumer market.

Quell’s OptiTherapy aka TENS technology, uses non-invasive nerve stimulation to make this possible, thereby allowing it to provide 100 percent prescription-free relief to anyone who uses it. According to the company who built it, the wearable is capable of relieving different types of chronic aches from nerve pain to lower back problems.

The technology applies a small electrical current to the surface of your skin, in this case, the electrical leads make contact with your calf that Quell describes as a “veritable USB port” for plugging into your body’s nervous system. It then sends neural pulses to your brain, where they trigger the body’s natural pain relief response releasing endogenous opioids.

The pain is reduced because of these opioids send pain signals to delta opioid receptor, which is what triggers those tedious feelings. One a full charging, the device is able to provide up to 40 hours of relief.

The Bluetooth connectivity on device allows it to pair with an iOS device and track your therapy as well as sleep quality over the time. It will be available later this spring for $250, and it’s got FDA approval already, something that’s always a good sign for a medical device.
