Yesterday’s (1/6) Support Group Zoom call was very informative. Dr. Striley is conducting a survey of University of Florida students. It is the first such study ever involving ET and college students and HopeNET is helping to fund it. The preliminary findings are that this is a group that has been ignored for way too long.

Have you heard of the Cala Trio? If not, there’s lots to learn. Cala Trio is different than E-stim or TENS. Cala Trio is designed to deliver just enough bioelectric stimulation to reach the median and radial nerves under the wrist to penetrate and stimulate those nerves and interrupt the tremor cycle. This not like using a TENS unit where the goal may be to turn up the TENS stimulation as high as the patient can comfortably tolerate to relieve muscle pain. TENS has a local effect and pain immediately returns after therapy stops. Cala Trio provides stimulation calibrated to the patient’s individual tremor and provides meaningful tremor reduction on average for 96 minutes after therapy ends.
