With National Sleep Awareness Week upon us, it’s a good reminder of how important sleep is to maintaining good health, especially for those in the chronic pain community. Pain is one of the most common causes of sleep difficulties and disorders and up to two-thirds of those living with chronic pain conditions experience some form of sleeping disorder, such as insomnia. Inadequate sleep often worsens pain symptoms, which can precipitate a vicious cycle of decreased activity during the day and even less sleep at night.

In order to end this cycle, those living with chronic pain need a variety of treatment options to choose from to reduce the pain that may be impacting their sleep quality. This is where tools like Quell come in, and is exactly why we designed the device to be worn 24/7. By using the device while sleeping, our users are able to ease the pain which may be disrupting their sleep.

Here’s what our users have to say about how Quell has helped them in their quest for a good night’s sleep*:

“Through Bluetooth, I control the settings from my smartphone and have been able to track my sleep, therapy, and pain levels. This device has completely changed my sleep routine and for the most part, Painsomnia is a thing of the past. Dreamy, huh?”

“Quell has been one of my favorite tools I use to reduce my fibromyalgia pain. One nice feature of Quell is that it can be worn while sleeping. I frequently use it at night when I wake up in pain and can’t get back to sleep. Quell cuts the pain enough for me to fall asleep.”

“I would go home and put it [Quell] on for a few hours and then be able to get a full night’s sleep without having to wake up with leg discomfort in the middle of the night”

  • Greg Watson, a Boston city planner who lives with chronic lower back pain and is an avid runner and bicyclist (read more about Greg’s experience using Quell in Pain News Network)

“I have been suffering with pain from Ankylosing Spondylitis for over a year, and this is the first thing that has really helped. I am sleeping better than I have in years as well and I fully relate that to this device. As most people with pain know, the less sleep you get, the worse the pain seems to be as you are so exhausted you have nothing left to fight the pain. I highly suggest anyone try this if you have chronic pain. With the money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose except the pain.”
