Quell® Wearable Pain Relief Technology™.
With an estimated one in three Americans living with chronic pain,

content, and bring together all who are impacted. LivingQuell will cover
a variety of topics for those living with pain, their loved ones,

"Over the last 20 years at NeuroMetrix, we've maintained the practice of
being customer-centric. We listen to our users and make improvements to
our products in response to their feedback," said Shai N. Gozani, M.D.,
Ph.D., President and CEO of NeuroMetrix. "A blog that supports our
customers in new ways with content from their peers as well as experts
was a logical next step in our mission. Our hope is for LivingQuell to
bring greater awareness, insight and education to the broader chronic
pain conversation and to Quell users."
Alongside the launch of the LivingQuell blog, NeuroMetrix is also
introducing a Quell Ambassador program. "We regularly connect with our
users and chronic pain influencers, and they all have unique experiences
and perspectives to share," said Frank McGillin, Senior Vice President
and Chief Commercial Officer at NeuroMetrix. "Our Ambassador program
offers a new way for them to participate in important conversations and
share their personal stories about chronic pain. This also allows users
whose lives have been impacted by Quell to influence future decisions
about product innovation."
Recently, NeuroMetrix welcomed a group of 30 users local to its Waltham,
Mass. headquarters to "meet the makers," learn about upcoming Quell
product features and share their stories and feedback on the product.
Quell users were able to learn more about product development directly
from Dr. Gozani, and connect with peers and NeuroMetrix's customer care,
engineering and marketing teams. Through the Quell Ambassador program,
NeuroMetrix intends to host more of these events.
LivingQuell is now live at blog.quellrelief.com.
