    Good PR today

    Don't forget the recurring revenues that will be generated by sales of electrodes that will be needed to keep the device operational. I was hoping for 5-10K units per month which is easily attainable with an "Aggressive Marketing Campaign".

    Time will tell.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Sales numbers for Quell could easily reach 500 million dollars or more if Management aggressively markets this product, via all the online venues available to them, HSN, QVC, Ebay, Amazon, Alibaba, Groupon and countless other marketplaces. They can not just sit back and let this opportunity slip away. Doctors offices and a tiny in house sales force just isn't going to produce the volumes that are needed to propel NURO's PPS into the stratosphere.

    Ebay and Amazon would also be great venues to market Quell, Heck, selling them out of my trunk is better than doing nothing, wake up management, Time to step up to the plate, PPS will not be able to sustain another secondary.

    My Point Exactly, Home Shopping Network HSN and QVC, they have captive audiences, mostly Older retired people who would benefit from the Quell device.

    Management has to be proactive, NOW is not the time to be complacent!! This Golden opportunity will quickly fade away if they don't capitalize on it.

    why will quell sell when sensus did not?

    If NURO management markets Quell aggressively, via, HSN and QVC and all other retail outlets available to them, this product's sales numbers will take off like a rocket, they will not have to raise more capital or get additional financing because the revenue generated from sales of Quell, Sensus and DPN Check will allow the to become a self sustaining company.

    Now the million dollar question, Is management ready the grab the bull by the horns and run with this opportunity or are they going to continue being complacent and let this golden opportunity pass them by.

    Managenent needs to immediately start looking for a medical equipment company like Abbott Labs or Johnson & Johnson to partner up with that has the resources to move NURO's products forward.

    Get off your #$%$ and Sieze the Moment before its too late.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • As I watch NURO stock continue to make lower lows, it just dawned on me, NURO management needs to take their Quell product on The Home Shopping Network and QVC where they have a captive audience (many of which are elderly retired senior citizens) to market a pain relief device. The exposure the Quell device will receive will make sales skyrocket in a very short time. Also they can take the Quell device on CNBC's Shark Tank, hopefully one of their Angel Investors or Venture Capitalist's will partner up with NURO and the PPS will rebound quite rapidly. IMHO Something is better than doing nothing.

    delusions of apple pie

    Apple is a very frugal company, why would they buy a medical device company like NVRO and spend billions when they can pick up NURO for 50 to 100 million and own a similar technology for a fraction of the cost.

    I agree with HTPFF that NURO can not continue on its current trajectory and continue doing secondary offerings just to finance their day to day operations.

    They have to begin an aggressive marketing campaign to launch their Quell product into the chain drugstores and large box stores as well as all the online marketplaces available to them. In the mean time they have to contact Goldman Sachs or Morgan Stanley and let the markets know they are looking for a partner with deep pockets to move this product along. Also management could offer to take a temporary compensation reduction until sales and revenues start to materialize. If management does not become very aggressive and wholeheartedly market their Quell product over the next few quarters, this whole new product launch will be in vain. Now is not the time for complacency. IMHO

    Apple I-Phone/Quell device

    by macuder Apr 29, 2015 10:16 AM
    macuder macuder Apr 29, 2015 3:59 PM Flag

    All the legal mumbo jumbo aside, do you think the teams of engineers at Apple are just sitting on their #$%$ not thinking about venturing into the medical field with the I-Phone and I-Watch, they can slim the Quell device down and have it contained within the I-Phone along with other medical devices to monitor Blood/Glucose levels, blood pressure and heart rates for people with abnormal rhythms. The possibilities are endless for the applications in the medical field, but NURO could be purchased very inexpensively by Apple or any other technology or medical company looking to expand their horizons.

    Many Diabetic patients still suffer from neuropathy and the excruciating pain that goes along with it even though their blood/glucose levels are well controlled. What about patients with back, shoulder or knee injuries that were previously addicted to the Benzos and Opiates because that was the only course of treatment for their severe pain. Neurometrix Quell device is a viable alternative treatment for many of these patients.

    In My Opinion, the current medical system is a dinosaur that faces extinction if left alone in its current state, but with major technological changes could become much more efficient and cost effective.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Just imagine if this Quell Pain Relief device was incorporated into the Apple I-Phone, you could be at work with a sore back and attach your I-Phone to your back or wherever you have pain. Don't you think the engineers at Apple are thinking up new applications for the I-Phone and I-Watch, Almost everyone has an I-Phone or an Android Phone so why not incorporate a device like Quell into a phone so it is as easy to use for pain as popping an aspirin. Apple has to continuously innovate and improve their existing products as well as make new products, it would make a lot of sense for Apple to expand into the medical field with, virtual doctors via the I-Phone and I-watch, people would be able to see a physician 24/7 anywhere in the world who could diagnose their condition and treat them for pain or whatever ails them right over the I-Phone. Imagine the cost savings for people and companies paying high health insurance premiums. Maybe its wishful thinking on my part but the way APPLE has emerged and literally changed the world, I believe anything is possible in the not so distant future.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Apple could buyout NURO for 100 million dollars and incorporate the Quell device right into their Apple Watch as another great feature of the Apple watch, it relieves pain as well as all the other things it does. Apple is very proactive, imagine how the Apple watch sales would soar if it had medical applications as well as a personal defibrillator and also relieved nerve pain. Wow, Go NURO

  • Matt carried the whole conference call, Omar only spoke a few words, usually Omar participates and is a lot more proactive during the conference calls. Lets wait and see what happens in the future, only time will tell. GLTA

    Is it True? Nothing from the company as of yet validating the story. Might be a hot load of horse hockey.

    I agree, Jesus, Moses, Allah and the pope could not have turned this stock around today. The have lost all credibility, No one even takes what they say seriously anymore. The conference call last night was a prime example, 2 callers well 3 including Block.

    Lets see what next week brings, maybe Omar has a trick up his sleeve.

    Enjoy Your Weekend and Have a Safe and Joyous Holiday Season to All.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • As Omar and Matt stated in the CC, they have to regain NQ's credibility, they know the shareholders don't want to hear excuses or #$%$ anymore. The shareholders want action, they have to prove themselves as if they were just starting out as a new company. It is not going to be an easy task but if they start making money and unlocking the value in their recent acquisitions maybe they can redeem themselves. Time will tell, at least the 3 qtrs. of earnings are out of the way and they can try to move forward. GLTA
