Quell ~ Wearable pain relief ~ 100% drug free

What does the word Quell mean? According to dictionary.com Quell means “to suppress; put an end to; extinguish: to vanquish; subdue.”
To me Quell means reduced pain and improved sleep.

Disclosure
  “I was given Quell as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.”

The Quell is an FDA-approved wearable device that Velcros around the upper calf and uses electrical stimulation.

How does it work?
Once it is attached the device is synced using a Bluetooth mobile app. The app based controls are easy to understand and easy to adjust the intensity. First, you need to calibrate to determine the intensity level needed.

Each therapy session lasts 60 minutes. It is recommended that you use your Quell for at least two to three full hour therapy sessions per day. During therapy, the stimulation feels like a strong but comfortable tingling sensation.

My thoughts…..

I decided to use it 24/7.  After about a week of using I began experiencing less pain and was amazed to find that I was able to sleep through the night without my leg pain waking me.

The battery lasts for approximately 4 to 7 days and is quick to charge. The 3rd week of use when the battery ran low I forgot to charge it. Several days went by and I again began experiencing my nightly leg & back pain. I hadn’t planned on stopping using it I simply kept forgetting to charge it.

I have used many pain relief products including tens units. I have had some success but I hated not being able to put it on myself. I’ve also experienced the intensity level shooting up so high I jumped out of my seat, literally. Thankfully, not only have I had pain relief but Quell has solved both of those problems.

How much?

A Quell starter kit costs $250, and includes a one-month supply of electrodes. Replacement electrodes are available at $90 for a three-month supply. The electrodes need to be replaced after 2 weeks of use. The device isn’t covered by insurance, but is reimbursable through a flexible spending account.

Quell will refund your money within 60 days if you try it and find it doesn’t help you.

“I will continue to use Quell.  It has offered me both pain relief and improved sleep.”
