Your patients want a better option for chronic pain relief.

Quell is a 100% drug free, patented technology proven to fight chronic pain. Quell is FDA cleared for day and night treatment of chronic pain. Worn on the upper calf, it is designed for people with chronic pain such as low back pain, arthritic and joint pain, nerve pain, leg and foot pain, and widespread pain.

How It Works

  1. Quell electrically stimulates peripheral sensory nerves.

  2. Sensory nerves carry neural pulses to the pain processing centers in the central nervous system.

  3. Neural pulses activate descending pain inhibition, providing widespread analgesia for chronic pain.

Quell is 100% drug free technology for widespread relief from chronic pain

  • Quell is clinically proven, nonaddictive, and has no side effects.

  • It is customized through a simple calibration process.

  • Each patient’s optimal neurostimulation level is controlled via patented OptiTherapy® technology.

Alternative to taking pain meds

It’s so nice to finally have an adjunct to my treatment plans for patients with chronic painful musculoskeletal problems. Most of my patients want an alternative to taking pain meds and Quell has proven to be that alternative.

Patients reduce their use of pain medications

As a practicing neurologist for 32 years, I am excited to have the Quell units available to dispense to my patients suffering from chronic pain and conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia, and back pain.  By using the Quell unit, my patients have been able to reduce their use of pain medications that may cause side effects and potential addiction.

Try it because it worked for me

When I have a patient that comes into my office suffering from pain, I first evaluate to see if that pain is chronic or if it is acute pain. If a patient is suffering from chronic pain, I tell them my experience with the Quell unit and say, ‘Try it. Try it and see if it works, because it worked for me.

Questions frequently asked by clinicians

About the Quell Device

How does the device know how much stimulation to deliver?

When the device is setup by the patient for the first time, a quick calibration process adjusts the stimulation intensity to an appropriate therapeutic dose for the patient.

Does the device run continuously?

Each therapy session lasts 60 minutes. After the first session, therapy will automatically restart every other hour as long as the device is on the leg.

Will the patient’s insurance cover the cost?

As Quell was FDA cleared for sale without a prescription, most insurance companies will not cover the cost directly but patients may be eligible to apply the cost towards their Flexible Spending Account (FSA). We recommend that patients check with their insurance provider to find out more. For about $1.00 a day, Quell’s 100% drug free technology provides relief from chronic pain, helping patients get more active and sleep better.

Do I have to write a prescription for it?

Quell‘s FDA cleared prescription strength neurotechnology is available without a prescription for the first time.

Why should I consider having my patients try it?

Quell is a non-narcotic, analgesic option for your patients and therefore may serve as a supplement to pain medications. Quell can be used in conjunction with prescription and over-the-counter medications, to help provide relief for those who may be experiencing breakthrough pain on their current therapies.

How does it work?

It stimulates sensory nerves, which leads to the release of endogenous opioids that act primarily through the delta opioid receptor to reduce pain signal transmission in the nervous system.

Is it a TENS device?

Quell is a specialized type transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator. It delivers precise, high energy stimulation automatically adjusting to deliver optimal therapy. Quell’s proven technology is 5x more powerful on average than other over-the-counter pain relief devices. It is discreet and completely wearable to enable pain relief when your patients need it. It is also the only device FDA cleared for use while sleeping.

What is Quell?

Quell is a wearable intensive nerve stimulator (WINS) intended to be used for symptomatic relief and management of chronic intractable pain.

Using Quell

Does Quell have any contraindications?

Quell is contraindicated for patients with a cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, or other implanted metallic or electronic device. If any of these apply, the patient should speak with you before using Quell.

Is there any medication that should not be used in conjunction with Quell?

No.

If a patient is getting good relief using Quell, is it possible to reduce medication or even eliminate it?

Only you can decide if medication adjustments are appropriate.

Can the patient be active while a therapy session is in process?

Yes.

Can the patient increase or decrease the stimulation level during a therapy session?

Yes, with simple button pushes.

Is there a limit on the number of weeks or months that a patient may continue to use Quell?

No, there is no time limit as long as the patient continues to receive benefit.

How long does relief last after each therapy session?

Some patients may experience relief for up to an hour after a session, but it varies by patient.

How long does it take before a patient starts to feel relief?

While results can vary, patients can start feeling relief as early as 15 minutes. However, it may take several weeks to realize the pain relief benefits of Quell.

How difficult is it to set up and use?

It is straightforward to set up and convenient to use. Setup out of the box requires just a few minutes. After initial setup, all the patient has to do is click the button to start therapy, change the electrode when needed, and plug in the device to recharge the battery as necessary.

Can the patient use Quell while sleeping?

They may use Quell to provide pain relief while falling asleep and throughout the night.
