Quell Relief

Mar 19, 2017 2:35 PM

Have any of you tried the Quell Relief unit for pain? If so, did it work well? I am considering purchasing one after reading about it.

It's a unit you wear on your leg for full body pain relief.

They are $250 so I wanted to see if anyone on this forum had tried it.

I'm going to go look into it real fast

I read about this and do not really understand how it is much different than a tens unit. My tens/stim unit was a whole lot cheaper. If you end up getting this please let us know how it works for you. I believe they have a trial period where you can get a refund but I am not positive.

@lmb it is supposed to work on the whole body vs the spot you place a tens. I have an appointment with my pain management dr at the end of this month. If he thinks it could possibly help I am going to purchase. I'll keep you posted. 🤞🏼

Yeah, let us know please

I have one and am wearing it now.
It does work, but it is not a miracle device

A tens unit didn't work for me at all; but I've known others who said it was a dream unit for them! I seriously hope it works for you! 💜

It is not a tens unit at all.... works completely different

I have one and used it for 3 mos. It helps but not a miracle. It needs to be right where the center of pain starts or the worst. I went to order more patches and saw the cost.. Nope, no more. And one month later I was taking the trash out, bent over and felt a pull in my left buttock. It got stronger, by day 4 I was screaming and writhing in pain. It forced me to a quick clinic and this time the doc listened and sent me for a mri. My whole lumbar area is herniated. So I felt I had some more charge left on one pad for my quell, there was for 3 days, and during those 3 days it couldn't touch my pain. So it sits in a drawer.

Well I had my pain management appt. A nurse came in asked what pills needed refills and said sorry honey the dr is on an emergency call going on three hours. He can't see you today. 😡 so I went ahead and ordered Quell. It should be here sometime today. Fingers crossed it works.

Yay it came. Now I have to figure out how to use it!

It's going really well. It does not take away all the pain but it greatly reduces it especially at night. I sleep with it on and am sleeping about 6 1/2 hours a night!

I just started using the Quells Relief today, hoping that it works.

There is a Quell users group on Facebook. It's great for any questions you may have. You can also feel free to send me a message. Good luck!
