Quell 2.0 Wearable Pain Relief Device is a system that uses electrical nerve stimulation to relieve chronic pain, like for patients of sciatica pain, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, osteoarthritis, etc. It is 50% smaller and supposedly more powerful than the previous version.
It is an FDA-approved Class II medical device for symptomatic relief and management of chronic pain, available without a prescription. It offers 100% drug-free therapy for chronic pain, thereby foregoing the innate side effects and risk of addiction that come with pain relief drugs.
To use it, you slip the device into the breathable sports band provided in the kit and wrap it around your upper calf. Quell is used with the free Quell Relief App(check it out here on Play Store). The app is meant to help personalise the therapy to individual needs by adjusting the intensity, and tracking activity, sleep and pain from the app. It can be used both during the day and at night, with at least three therapy sessions recommended per day for 30 days.
While Quell is quite expensive at $249 for the starter kit, followed by $30 worth of supplies for each month, it does work, as per a study conducted by DovePress. It is also very comfortable and lightweight, so it feels like nothing with regular use. It is pretty easy to calibrate through the app and is overall very user-friendly as it works automatically. You can also choose from a variety of different electrodes – regular ones for daily use and sports electrodes which have a different type of gel designed to work better even when you’re sweating. You can also choose bands in a variety of colours.
The study reported an 80% success rate among the participants, so there is a chance that it might not work for you. But the best part is that it comes with a 60-day money back guarantee in case you don’t feel any results, so it is definitely worth a try if you’re able to shell out the $250 and subsequent $30 for your treatment.
