Check out My Review of the Quell – Wearable Pain Relief
The Quell is a wearable device…It’s a small, square device that sits in a velcro pocket with an electrode snapped inside. Like a TENS unit, the electrode strip sends electrical signals that trigger your body’s own pain relief mechanisms.
The Quell is an FDA-approved Class II medical device for symptomatic relief and management of chronic pain. It is available without a prescription.
Using the Quell
You slip the Quell into the breathable sports band and wrap it around your upper calf. Then you calibrate the system so that it gives you as much stimulation as your body needs. You control how much stimulation is given to your body, then the Quell takes over. It automatically works for an hour and then shuts off for an hour, continuing that cycle for as long as you wear it.
It’s designed to be worn 24 hours a day so it even senses when you’re sleeping and changes the stimulation. It easily fits under your clothes and it also works with a free app to track your therapy and sleep history.
How Does Quell Work?
Quell is a device based on wearable intensive nerve stimulation (WINS), a form of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). At first glance, it may seem odd to put a portable pain device around your calf to help with back or neck pain. Here is the basis of how the Quell produces pain relief:
- Quell stimulates peripheral sensory nerves with a measure of electricity.
- These peripheral sensory nerves carry neural pulses to the pain center in your central nervous system.
