Quell, which is also available on Bed Bath & Beyond’s ecommerce website, is an FDA cleared, 100% drug-free wearable designed to provide 24/7 widespread relief from chronic pain.
Developed for those living with chronic pain, Quell delivers advanced, clinical-strength neurotechnology in a wearable device, and offers a sophisticated app to personalize and control therapy.

Chronic pain can be complex to treat and patients often struggle to find a combination of therapies that best fits their needs. “Finding solutions that address pain in a customized way is essential to coping with chronic pain. NeuroMetrix is dedicated to developing technological solutions for chronic pain to support users as they seek a treatment plan that works for them,” said Shai N. Gozani, M.D., Ph.D., President and CEO of NeuroMetrix. “Having a national retailer like Bed Bath & Beyond stock Quell in its stores means access to treatment outside of a healthcare setting, providing more convenience to consumers.”
