NeuroMetrix Reports Scientific Presentation at the PAINWeek 2020 Live Virtual Conference
WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO) today reported that it will present a scientific poster at the PAINWeek 2020 Live Virtual Conference to be held September 11 - 13. PAINWeek is the preferred resource in the U.S. for frontline practitioners treating acute and chronic pain.
The poster is titled "Real-World Outcomes from High-Dose Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation in Individuals With Chronic Knee Pain". The poster presents an analysis of 1,136 Quell® users with chronic knee pain who used their device regularly over the first 70 days following initiation of therapy. A key strength of this longitudinal observational study was the use of an intention-to-treat analysis to decrease bias. The study demonstrated a clinically meaningful group mean improvement in pain severity and functional impairment as assessed by the Brief Pain Inventory - Short Form.

It is a wearable device that can be used during the day while active and at night while sleeping.
