Wearable Technology Promises Drug-Free Pain Relief

BOSTON (CBS) – Living with pain isn’t a lot of fun, and taking medication isn’t always a good alternative.

The Food and Drug Administration has given Waltham based Neurometrix the green light to market new wearable technology that can help with all kinds of conditions.

Quell Wearable Pain Relief

“Quell” is a washable sports band with a slim lithium battery operated therapy pod which gets inserted in a pocket. It is attached to the calf area and then relieves pain all over.

“It basically stimulates sensory nerves in your leg which triggers the release of endogenous opioids, and those are the body’s natural pain relievers. They block pain throughout the body,” explained Frank McGillin, a senior vice president at Neurometrix.

Basically, the device manipulates the body’s central nervous system to send natural pain relief where it is needed.

“People are using it for all kinds of conditions: arthritis, nerve pain, painful diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, sciatica, lower back pain,” added McGillin. “Chronic pain is really an epidemic. One hundred million Americans are suffering from some sort of chronic pain.”
