INSIGHTEC LAUNCHES WEBSITE FOR ESSENTIAL TREMOR PATIENTS TO LEARN ABOUT NEURAVIVE TREATMENT
INSIGHTEC is proud to announce the launch of a new website devoted to patients living with essential tremor (ET). The essential-tremor.com website provides information on the movement disorder, essential tremor treatment options, how the Neuravive treatment works, as well as stories from patients who have undergone the Neuravive MR-guided focused ultrasound treatment for tremor relief.
MR-guided focused ultrasound is a new non-invasive ET treatment option for medication-refractory essential tremor that is performed with INSIGHTEC’s Exablate Neuro system.
On the website, people can check their initial suitability for the Neuravive treatment, although for diagnosis, a neurologist specializing in movement disorders should be consulted.
Additionally, you can meet Heather, a champion ice skater from Canada, Haya, a baker from Israel, and Peter, a blogger from the USA. These patients tell their story, in their own words, what life is like living with ET and what their tremor-free life is like following the Neuravive treatment.
With an estimated 42 million people living with essential tremor around the world, this website will provide a voice for those living with the disorder and continue the company’s efforts to increase awareness.
INSIGHTEC invites people living with essential tremor as well as their loved ones and caregivers to share their stories at http://usa.essential-tremor.com/share-your-story.
