The GyroGlove from GyroGear

GyroGlove is a glove designed to sup­press hand tremors caused by Parkinson’s dis­ease. Instead of using drugs to coun­ter­act the effect of the dis­ease, which have a finite lifes­pan and some­times sig­nif­i­cant side effects, Joon Faii Ong (a med­ical stu­dent at Impe­r­i­al Col­lege Lon­don) worked with a team of engi­neers, design­ers and medics to cre­ate a glove that would direct­ly sta­bilise the hands of some­one suf­fer­ing from tremors, by using gyro­scopes.

First nom­i­nat­ed as a final­ist in the AXA PPP Health Tech & You Awards, and now on tar­get to launch at the end of 2016.
