NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO, NUROW) reported today that it will be an active participant at the Connected Health Symposium on October 20-21 in Boston sponsored by Partners Healthcare. Shai N. Gozani M.D., Ph.D., President and CEO of NeuroMetrix, will be a panelist for a discussion entitled: “New Wearables for Health and Wellness: Monitoring and Therapy.” In addition, NeuroMetrix will present a scientific poster entitled: “Sleep Phenotypes in Chronic Pain Suffers: Application of Machine Learning to a Large Database.” The Company will sponsor an exhibition providing information and demonstrations of its Quell® wearable technology for chronic pain at booth 132 at the Symposium.
"We are pleased to participate in the discussion about the role that health monitoring and therapeutic technologies are playing in reshaping healthcare,” said Dr. Gozani. “With over 30,000 Quell devices in the market and 2 million hours of patient data in the Quell Health Cloud, we are uncovering important trends related to sleep and the management of chronic pain.”
Quell is designed for millions of people suffering from chronic pain. The advanced wearable device is lightweight and can be worn during the day while active, and at night while sleeping. It has been cleared by the FDA for treatment of chronic pain without a prescription. In a recent study, 81% of Quell users reported an improvement in their chronic pain. Quell users can start, stop, and adjust therapy discreetly via the optional Quell Relief app. Quell also offers advanced sleep tracking that provides feedback on eight dimensions of sleep including sleep duration, quality, body position, time out of bed, and repetitive leg movements throughout the night. Quell was the winner of the 2016 SXSW (South by Southwest) Innovation Award for Best Wearable Technology. Quell is available at select healthcare professionals and retailers.
