Wellpepper is used to track pain to help decrease the use of narcotics by increasing patient awareness making patients more aware of their pain scores and management techniques, and alerting care teams when patients are reporting potentially dangerous or out of acceptable ranges of pain levels or pain medication usage.

In a randomized control trial conducted by Boston University Center for Neurorehabilitation, Wellpepper was shown to improve outcomes for people with Parkinson Disease.
