The Quell is pain relief you can wear

Quell - Wearable Pain Relief

When you are suffering from chronic pain, a good day can have you in serious pain, and the bad days are just…unbearable. Of course, you still have to function as a normal human being, so you are forced to find ways to work around it. For those who can’t afford pills and prescriptions that will temporarily solve things, you’re going to want a way to deal with the pain without having reoccurring payments.

The Quell is a wearable TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) unit that uses electric pulses to stimulate sensory nerves, which tells your brain it needs to block pain in the body. Yes, you are being shocked a bit, but it’s not something that is going to zap you into oblivion. This is aimed at people with back pain, nerve pain, fibromyalgia, arthritic pain, and any other sorts of body pain you might be dealing with. Therapy sessions last for an hour, and can run every other hour.

You will be able to skip sessions if you’d like, as well as adjust the intensity of the stimulation, though it will automatically adjust a bit during your treatment to make sure you’re getting the most out of it. This connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth so you can monitor your therapy sessions and sleep to make sure you’re taking proper care of yourself. This is going to cost you $249, and the only thing you’ll need to replace over time is the electrodes which last for two weeks, and will cost $29.95 for a month supply. That sort of ruins the avoidance of reoccurring payments, but at least you don’t have to take drugs!
