Learn about the Cala Trio in Our New Podcast
We’re “Talking About the Cala Trio” in our latest “Talking Essential Tremor” podcast.
IETF Executive Director Patrick McCartney interviews Cala Health CEO Renee Ryan to learn more about this watch-like device released by Cala Health a year ago. Cala Trio stimulates the median and radial nerves in the wrist and ultimately interrupts the tremor in the nucleus of the thalamus part of the brain. Studies have shown it can provide up to 90 minutes of tremor reduction in patients.
The Cala Trio is only available by prescription. Listen to this podcast and then visit with your doctor about it.
