If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I have suffered from chronic pain since 2012. I have been taking medication since then, and seeing a pain management doctor for about two years. I am always looking for new ideas for pain relief. I saw an ad on Facebook for the Quell 2.0 for pain relief and was intrigued by this product. So, when they sent me one to try out and write about, I was very very happy to get it.
Quell is an electronic device that you wear on your leg, and has been approved by the FDA for 24/7 use. It is 100% drug free, and is the only OTC pain relief device FDA cleared for use while sleeping. In a published study, 81% of users reported improvement in their chronic pain* . The Quell 2.0 device blocks chronic pain, and is designed for people with a wide range of chronic pain conditions. It comes with a 60 day money back guarantee, and, it is made in the USA.
When it arrived, it was packaged in a very nice box that can be used to store it in when not in use. Inside the box, there is the device, a leg band, two electrodes, and a charger. There is also a brochure that explains exactly how to use the device. It is controlled by an APP for your smartphone. The APP was easy to download and set up.
My device was already charged when it arrived, so I didn’t have to wait to start using it. I took all the parts out of the box, and read the instructions. After putting the device inside the leg band, along with one of the electrodes, I downloaded the APP to my phone.
I registered my device, then did a calibration. The device was ready to put on. Once it was on my leg securely, I started it with the APP. The recommended use of the Quell 2.0 for optimal pain relief is for three one hour sessions per day, separated by one hour in between. So, you can wear the device on your leg for 5 hours minimum, then take it off. You can also use it 24 hours a day if you wish.
I am going to be trying the Quell 2.0 for pain relief for 30 days to see if it helps me with my chronic pain. At the end of 30 days, I will be writing my review to let you know how it worked for me. I can’t wait to see what it can do for me, and really hope that it works.
