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.
