People who live with tremors know it can impact every part of your life. Essential tremor is a nervous system disorder that causes involuntary shaking. It can be hard to write legibly, and even eat or drink without spilling.
When I was an Innovation Fellow, doing needs finding with my team, I met a man whose hands shook so badly that he could no longer write a letter to his wife or drink a coffee with a friend. He had a severe form of a debilitating disorder called essential tremor.
Doctors from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock are looking into new ways to reduce and hopefully stop essential tremors for patients.
In the PROSPECT study, a wrist-worn neuromodulation device Cala Trio by CalaHealth, Inc. provided symptomatic relief for essential tremor (ET).
Using Cala Health’s non-invasive therapeutic device Cala Trio for 40 minutes twice daily effectively helped to reduce hand tremors within three months, results from a clinical study show.
Patient recruitment is usually the biggest challenge in conducting clinical trials. Thanks to the International Essential Tremor Foundation and their members, CalaHealth recently enrolled the largest therapeutic essential tremor study in record time.
Results of the landmark PROSPECT trial of the Cala Trio, a wrist-worn wearable neuromodulation device for essential tremor (ET), suggest that the device is safe and effective for the reduction of hand tremor in individuals with ET.
