Quell wearable manages pain by using brain opiates

With at least 100 million Americans suffering from chronic pain, the newly launched consumer-grade wearable device will likely provide a much anticipated relief.

Priced at about $250 and announced at CES 2015, the Quell wearable will hit the stores this spring, bringing the time-tested TENS technology to individual consumer.

The TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) technology applies a small electrical current to your skin. The Quell device requires the electrical leads to make direct contact with patient’s calf, the area acting as “veritable USB port” for connecting to human body’s nervous system, according to Quell’s description.

The electrical impulses travel from a person’s calf to the lower brain, where it starts releasing body’s natural opiates that help in pain relief. While TENS technology is proven, it does not work equally well for everyone. To accommodate the situation, Quell will offer a 60-day money-back guarantee to attract even the most skeptic consumers. Consumers will know they are wearing a TENS device because a faint buzzing will accompany the tingling sensation at the point of contact with electrical leads. Should the pain relief will ever come, it will take about 15 minutes.

Promising 40 hours of pain relief on a single charge, the Quell sensor is designed to be worn 24/7. During the middle of night, the power consumption drops to 80 percent to offer a good night’s sleep.
