Specify: Right—OR—Left Hand,

IMPORTANT: Once Customer Care receives the ordering info needed, Cala will email the Veteran the patient agreements.

Product shipment may be made to Veterans home or VA center as determined by prescribing HCP, and the correct “Ship To” address must be included on the PO.

4. Return Option

We offer a 90-day return option due to the heterogeneous nature of Essential Tremor, not all patients may benefit from the use of Cala Therapy. If the Veteran discontinues use within the 90-day trial period, Cala will fully refund the costs. Credit will be applied to the VA credit card within 30 days once Cala receives the Cala Stimulator/Base Station and all bands.

5. Warranty

Cala therapy is designed for use on demand. The stimulator and base station have an expected service life of 3 years. The band has an expected service life of 90 days. To support everyday use, the stimulator has a 2-year warranty, and the band has a 45-day warranty.
