These gloves give people with tremor a helping hand

GyroGear, a UK startup, has developed gloves with built-in gyroscopes are help people with “essential tremor” regain control of their hands.

Parkinson’s disease and Essential tremor (ET) affect over 200 million people worldwide.

These conditions can cause patients’ hands to shake so much that everyday tasks such as eating and drinking become difficult or impossible.

GyroGear’s solution, according to Gordon McCabe, GyroGear development manager, is to mount a gyroscope on the back of the hand which, much like a spinning top that will always stay upright as long as it’s spinning, makes your hand stay level while the flywheel is spinning.
