Quell Saved My Life: Two Chronic Pain Success Stories
You just want to sleep.
You’ve dealt with chronic pain all day, and now, laying in your bed in the quiet nighttime stillness, you rest — and wait to feel a few hours of reprieve from an unending onslaught of pain and stiffness in your neck, your shoulders, your hips, your chest.
But sleep doesn’t come easily for those who suffer from chronic pain. As you lay there, you think about your exhaustion. You’re too tired to do much of anything anymore, so you think of what your life has become: you haven’t left your house, you miss your friends and family, and even bathing and dressing have become insurmountable obstacles that you just can’t handle anymore.
Everything hurts. You just want to sleep.
Eventually, you hear an alarm clock go off, but it’s pointless — you’ve been awake for hours. You get out of bed because you have to feed your pets. You ache. You drink coffee. You’re stiff. You want to do housework, to go outside and feel the sun on your skin — but instead, you lay down again because of the pain. If you’re lucky, you sleep.
This used to be April Jordan’s morning. She suffers from fibromyalgia, a medical condition characterized by widespread, chronic pain. It’s difficult to treat, but even more difficult to live with — until Jordan started using Quell.
How Wearable Technology Helps Chronic Pain Sufferers
Quell is an FDA-approved piece of wearable technology that looks — well, pretty unremarkable. It’s a black Velcro strap that wraps around the upper calf. That design is intentional; Quell provides continuous therapy to chronic pain sufferers, and its simple structure means that the device is comfortable to wear throughout the day, even while sleeping.
