#ActionOnET

 
#ActionOnET is the leading UK campaign for Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) technology on the NHS for the treatment of essential tremor.
What is Focused Ultrasound technology?

MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) is a cutting-edge (without the cutting) treatment for essential tremor currently available on Medicare in the USA, universal health care in Japan, and in other countries around Europe.

          

Currently, the most common non-pharmacological treatment for essential tremor in the UK is Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), an invasive procedure which, although very effective, involves the surgical opening of the skull, permanently implanted hardware requiring surgical battery replacements for the remaining lifetime of the patient, as well as a long recovery period and hospital stay.
