What’s trending QUELL™ WEARABLE THERAPY If you’ve ever wished you could “wear” pain relief therapy whenever you needed it, then Quell™ Wearable Therapy could be just what you’re looking for! Using Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) technology, Quell is said to relieve nerve-related pain in as little as just 15 short minutes. How? You strap on the passport-sized device to the back of your calf, turn it on, and then it sends electrical pulses to your nerves, signaling your brain to release pain-soothing opioids. The company says that Quell can diminish pain due to conditions such as sciatica, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, knee injuries, sprains and even labor pains. All that and there is an accompanying app which gives feedback concerning your therapy sessions, the device’s battery life and your sleep— all of which Quell tracks using a built-in accelerometer.
