Therapeutic Pipeline Highlight: Essential Tremor
Essential Tremor (ET) is a common movement disorder affecting over 7 million Americans and millions more worldwide. The condition is marked by hand tremors that make it difficult, if not impossible, to perform daily activities like eating, drinking, and writing. Cala Health is working on a solution that retunes the nervous system in order to relieve the symptoms of ET. Cala Health is striving to put patients in control of their tremor — without the need for invasive brain surgery or drugs. Cala Health supports the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) and works to connect people living with essential tremor to new therapies.
