Gyroglove for Management of Tremors

Regain your independence.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: gyrogear.co

The Gyroglove is a device under development by students and graduates of the engineering, medical and design programs at Imperial College of London. The mother of invention of one of the students who was working with a 103 year old woman with severe tremors that interfered with her ability to perform basic ADL tasks. The Gyroglove has been under development as a solution to counter act the tremors for improving functional skills.

This is an exciting new innovation that has the potential to aid clients in increasing their functional abilities.

I hope to see this available for clients in the near future!
