Week In Wearables: Quell Reviewed

Doc Uses Quell To Combat Opioid Crisis

The Boston Herald reports that a wearable is being used to fight the opioid crisis. It’s an imaginative response to a big problem.

A Boston-area doctor is doing his part to help combat the opioid crisis using a wearable technology for chronic pain management. Quell is a device that aims to reduce the use of opioid pain medicine by stimulating the nervous system and activating natural pain blockers in the body. Dr. Shai Gozani of Waltham developed the technology and said his product can diminish the reliance of opioid pain medication users.

“We are trying to make it as invisible as possible so it can be as easy as taking a pill,” said Gozani, who explained sufferers of chronic pain can use Quell discreetly every day. The device is worn on the upper calf and sends vibrations that activate the nervous system and signal the brain. The brain then releases natural opioids that block pain and provide relief.
