Top Health and Fitness Tech From CES 2015
It was always going to be the case that wearable technology would be big at CES this year, but when WIRED.co.uk hit the show floor in Vegas, we found some fascinating new devices in the health and fitness categories that offered unique takes on what defines wearables as a category.
Similarly, we discovered some health and fitness products out there that weren’t wearable and went beyond activity tracking to enhance our ability to take better care of and have better control over our bodies.
Here’s a round-up of some of the highlights.
Quell Wearable Pain Relief Technology
Quell offers wearable pain relief by using sensors to stimulate nerve endings in the calf, which send signals to your brain and trick it into releasing its natural opiates. Promising up to 40 hours of pain relief on a single charge, this strap-on device will also track your sleep so you can see how much the pain is affecting your sleep quality. It’s already been approved by the FDA in the US to be sold as a medical device.
Quell will cost around $250 (£165) when it goes on sale this spring, although comes with a money-back guarantee, as while the technology has been proven to work for most people, it doesn’t work for all.
