The Quell Device
Quell is the only FDA approved, 100 percent drug-free device which has been clinically proven to ease chronic pain with just a touch of a button. It is also recommended by the doctors and can also be used for conditions like sciatica, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, painful diabetic neuropathy and more.
The device is put in a sport band which is comfortable and breathable. An electrode is attached to the back of the device. The electrode has to be in direct contact with your skin. This can be possible when you strap the band on your upper calf. The nerves in the upper calf which send the neural pulses to the brain are stimulated with Quell, triggering the body’s natural response to pain relief. Endogenous opioids are released into the spine where pain signals are barred from your body.
Every user has different sensitivity levels and therapy requirements. So, Quell is personalized with calibration process the first time it’s used. After the first use, the device will automatically adjust to provide you the best stimulation for pain relief. You can experience relief in less than 15 minutes.
