What is Cala Trio and how does it work?

Cala Trio is an FDA-approved wearable device designed to help manage the symptoms of hand tremors. It's worn like a watch, and it uses low-energy electrical stimulation to reduce tremor severity for up to 12 hours per day. The device can be used on either the right or left wrist, depending on your preference. The device monitors the tremors on your wrists, communicates with and stimulates your radial nerves, and then interrupts the tremors in your brain. For more information, check out

their website


Who is a good candidate for treatment?

Cala Trio is suitable for those over 18 with hand tremors who cannot find relief with other treatment methods. The device may be especially beneficial for those who want to avoid more invasive treatments such as surgery or repeated injections. If you are unsure if it would be right for you, you might be eligible for a trial period.

What are the benefits of using Cala Trio?

Using Cala Trio can reduce tremor severity for up to 12 hours per day, which can help improve your quality of life. The device is also relatively easy to use and has few side effects.

How much will Medicare cover for Cala Trio?

Cala Trio is considered DME (durable medical equipment) so Medicare Part B covers the cost of a Cala Trio device. There may still be some out-of-pocket costs, up to 20% of the total Medicare approved cost. If you have supplemental insurance, it may also help cover some or all of the cost. For example, with a Medicare Supplement Plan G, the only out-of-pocket cost to worry about is your Part B deductible. Your out-of-pocket costs may vary with a Medicare Advantage plan. To determine your exact coverage, you should speak with your Medicare provider.

How can people get more information about the treatment?

If you have further questions about

Remember that every individual’s situation is different and coverage may vary, so be sure to discuss all of your options with a healthcare professional before making any decisions.


Cala Trio is a potentially life-changing treatment for those suffering from hand tremors. Medicare Part B covers the cost of the device, and there may be additional out-of-pocket costs depending on your plan. Be sure to speak with your healthcare provider and insurance provider to determine how much you'll pay for Cala Trio on Medicare and if it's the right treatment for you.
