Medical device firm NeuroMetrix is planning to unveil its new wearable pain relief device, Quell, in January 2015.

It will be unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, US.

Quell is designed for consumers looking for non-pharmacological pain control options.

Featuring the company’s non-invasive neurostimulation technology, the device will provide relief from chronic pain, specifically neuropathic pain that result due to diabetes and lower back problems.

The company said this advanced lightweight wearable device can be worn during the day while active and at night while sleeping.

"Quell is designed primarily for consumers looking for non-pharmacological pain control options."

The device was cleared by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat chronic pain without a prescription. Users of this device will also have the option of using their smartphone to automatically track and personalise their pain therapy.
