These examples of pain relief tech range from app-savvy massagers to wireless pain-alleviating wearables. When looking at digitized pain relief treatments, standouts include iTENS' nerve-stimulating wearable device and accompanying digital app that work together to eliminate chronic aches and pains.

When it comes to other popular wearable devices on the market, products like Quell -- wrapping around one's calf to offer relief from muscle tension -- stand out and are ideal for runners or other active consumers. Similarly, examples like Philips' 'PulseRelief' system rely on "transcutaneous electronic nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy" to heal aches when applied to sensitive problem areas like one's upper and lower back.

These examples of pain relief tech also include digitized furniture pieces and pillows that make both minor and more serious aches more bearable for users.
