Quell Medical Device App Development

The Device

The Quell wearable pain relief device from NeuroMetrix fights chronic pain by stimulating nerves in the upper calf, which send neural pulses to the brain. This causes the brain to release natural opiates that block pain signals and deliver widespread pain relief throughout the body. Quell is a new alternative to treating chronic pain, and the first device of its kind approved by the FDA for use during sleep.

The App

The Quell mobile app lets the user track and monitor their therapy and sleep sessions and adjust settings. It also displays the battery level and the remaining life of the device’s electrodes, and it links directly to Quell’s online store, making it easy to replace electrodes.

The Quell app syncs with the device via Bluetooth LE. Both iOS and Android versions are available.

Quell Android App Development
Working with Atomic has been great. They’ve really invested themselves in understanding the product—they use the devices and play around with them. We almost consider them part of the company. The team is exceptional. It’s a very smart group of people, very invested in the software they’re developing. Shai Gozani, M.D., Ph.D., CEO, NeuroMetrix, Inc.

IDEO completed the industrial design and mechanical engineering of the Quell medical device. Atomic provided iOS and Android mobile app development for Quell using Objective-C, ReactiveCocoa, and Java. Atomic also developed the Quell Health Cloud, a server-side component that stores usage and sleep history for Quell Users.
