Dr. Rohit Dhall, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Director of Neurodegenerative Disorders at the University of Arkansas discusses essential tremors (ET) and a new wrist-worn bioelectronic device, called the Cala Trio™
Cala Health was nominated as the Best Medical Technology by Prix Galien USA for Cala Trio™, the first non-invasive targeted therapy that reduces hand tremors for adults living with essential tremor (ET).
Cala Health has developed a product to treat a massive unmet need in medicine. In the United States, it’s estimated that 2.2% of the population suffers from essential tremor (ET). This condition, much like Parkinson’s Disease, causes involuntary sharking, particularly in the hands, but ET is much more widespread.
It’s a watch-like device that stimulates nerves in the wrist to interrupt, and therefore, calm tremors in the hands. Listen to this conversation about the Cala Trio from Cala Health CEO Renee Ryan.
Cala Trio by Cala Health took the gold award for the Medical Device/ Dental: Diagnostics and Disease Treatment category.

Current Therapy Cala Health Takes on Neurological conditions with a novel approach – by reverse engineering the body’s nervous system
I sat in an occupational therapy office with electrodes stuck to my right hand, playing a game of Connect Four. Or at least I attempted to play, unsuccessfully, as I had for the last 10 weeks.
We highlight 2020’s emerging trends to watch and high-momentum startups with world-changing potential. The past few decades have seen unprecedented levels of innovation, especially in what Peter Thiel calls the world of “bits,” or software, internet, and mobile technology.
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.
Individualized, Non-invasive therapy for essential tremor – An interview with Kate Rosenbluth of Cala Health
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).
