Wearable Pain Relief Component Snags US Patent

Quell Wearable Pain Relief Technology, a commercial transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation device, has recently been awards a US patent. The device uses sensors to automatically adjust stimulation for optimal comfort and pain relief. Described as a novel application of real-time accelerometer measurements to control transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, the core technology enables features that include automatic adjustment of stimulation while the user is sleeping. It is also said to be the only transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator on the market that incorporates advanced sensor technologies, such as accelerometers, to regulate neurostimulation and optimize relief from chronic pain.


Designed for people suffering from chronic pain, the wearable device is lightweight and can be worn during the day while active, and at night while sleeping. It has been cleared by the FDA for treatment of chronic pain without a prescription. In a recent study, 81% of Quell users reported an improvement in their chronic pain.
