Press Release

NeuroMetrix Chief Commercial Officer Frank McGillin to Present Quell Wearable Pain Relief Technology at 16th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting

NeuroMetrix,Inc.
Posted on: 10 Nov 16

NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO, NUROW) announced today that Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Frank McGillin will present on Quell® Wearable Pain Relief Technology™ during the 16th Annual Diabetes Technology Meeting, November 10-12, in Bethesda, Maryland.

About half of people with diabetes have chronic pain. In addition to the direct burden of pain symptoms, many of these individuals also report that their pain impacts sleep quality, activity level, and mood, all of which reduce quality of life and can exacerbate diabetes. Moreover, clinical studies have shown that chronic pain can limit diabetes self-care behaviors, which are essential for minimizing diabetes-related complications.

“We are excited to demonstrate Quell pain relief technology to the researchers who are leading the effort to discover innovative ways to address the challenges faced by people with diabetes,” said McGillin. “Since one of the focus areas of this year’s meeting is big data, we are particularly pleased to share early insights from the over 2,000,000 hours of user data captured in the Quell Health Cloud.”

About the Diabetes Technology Society Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting is an opportunity for leading scientists in the field of diabetes research to learn about the latest technological advances for people with diabetes. Last year’s meeting in Bethesda, Maryland brought together over 450 clinicians and scientists from 24 countries to focus on applying science and technology to fight diabetes.
