Inspired by You, Cala Health is Working with IETF to Raise Essential Tremor Awareness

By Kristie Burns,
Chief Marketing Officer – Cala Health

For five years, Cala Health has focused on building a therapy—the Cala Trio™—designed especially for the essential tremor (ET) patient to get control of hand tremors. Our campaign, “Freedom to Be,” was inspired by the wide variety of patients we met who want to get back to doing the thing they love to do. Painters, musicians, photographers, people who enjoy cooking and writing, socializing with friends in public, and being their best self.

As part of the Cala Health leadership team, I’ve met many patients. They face each day with perseverance, optimism, and understandably frustration. Please know you have motivated our team. Each patient’s story is unique. Each patient’s experience pushes us to evolve the treatment so that we can help even more ET patients. We are working hard to increase access with financial assistance through insurance coverage and additional international regulatory approvals.

The International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) community’s incredible enthusiasm for Cala Trio led to an overflow of volunteers in the largest essential tremor therapeutic trial ever conducted, PROSPECT. Over 260 patients at 26 centers around the U.S. enrolled in six weeks. The data from over 21,000 therapy sessions collected during the study are analyzed; initial reports were accepted and presented at three international meetings with more reports submitted. Thanks to the IETF community, we are learning more about this debilitating condition.

Cala Health is committed to raising the curtain on essential tremor with health reporters and news outlets educating the public on the most common movement disorder. This month, you might see this article in your local newspaper [link] or our posts on social media for National Essential Tremor Awareness Month. When invited, Cala is always thrilled to participate in support group meetings, local health fairs, and educational meetings for patients and loved ones.

Some of us have had the honor and responsibility of introducing new medical technologies to patients and clinicians for 25 years. Please know that you inspire and motivate us to do our best work. To learn more about Cala Trio, please visit www.CalaTrio.com

  1. I took part in the Cala research study. I had three months of freedom while Is wearing the Cala device. I was able to see pretty handwriting for the first time since grade school. I could drink from a glass wthout spilling it. I could pick up things without spilling. I did not have to worry about using the knife while i was cutting things in the kitchen.

    Thank you for your Reseach!
