Quell – Wearable Drug Free Pain Relief Technology
NeuroMetrix Quell Review
Quell is a drug-free, wearable pain relief system that promises to end chronic pain.
The company that sells Quell is called NeuroMetrix. They are based in Waltham, Massachusetts, which is slightly west of Boston. A healthcare company, they also develop point-of-care tests for patients as well as physicians. These are neuropathy diagnostic tests used in hospitals.
The company does a lot of work on sleep disorders as well as chronic pain management. Of course the two areas often overlap, especially in patients who suffer a debilitating vicious circle of one exacerbating the other.
The company was founded in 1996 by a group from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. I’m going to stop right there and say that’s a pretty good endorsement. Could you have better credentials for this stuff?
NeuroMetrix is publicly traded on the NASDAQ (NURO). Although the company has been around for 20 years now, Quell just became available commercially late last year (as of this writing, that’s about a month ago!). Before that, it was used clinically and has already been used by over 2.5 million patients since 1998.
Founder and president of NeuroMetrix is Shai N. Gozani, M.D., Ph.D. He holds 25 US and international patents and I can’t even list his degrees, but suffice it to say he knows a lot about computer science (bachelor’s degree), electrical engineering (Master’s degree), and neurobiology (doctorate). Oh, and just for kicks he graduated from Harvard Med School. Whatever you create, Dr. Gozani, I’ll buy it because you sound like a very smart man.
