Pain Relief Device : 100% Drug free

A new health gadget has been launched which is claimed to provide pain relief through technology. The device called Quell comes with a band with which you can attach it with your calf and stimulates the body's nervous system to relieve pain from various ailments.

It is obvious that when we talk about pain relief, you instantly think of eating some kind of pill, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, or similar over the counter product. there are prescription medicines available for more serious pain, but they can be highly addictive also they have many serious side effects as well as a large potential for abuse.

Quell for pain relief promises an external way of pain relief in which you do not have to eat any pills. All you have to do is to attaches the unit to the your calf and the electrodes starts stimulating your body to release pain-relieving opiates. It stimulates the sensory nerves which sends neural pulses to the brain that trigger the release of endogenous opioids, the pain-relief response that blocks pain signals in the spine. The process is called Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation technology, also known as TENS. There are already over-the-counter TENS systems such as the one made by Icy Hot, but these are very low-powered and low-tech compared with Quell.
