The Gyroglove is a medical innovation from GyroGear that is a glove designed to counter hand tremors due to Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders resulting in body tremors. This glove stands out because it has been designed. As a result, it is simple for the person to use, compact and reliable. In addition, since it is wearable technology, the company seeks to bridge the gap between deep brain stimulation (a costly and invasive sort of brain surgery) and associated medical treatments as the former carries with it several side effects.
Joon Faii Ong is the CEO and Founder of GyroGear. He is the inventor of the GyroGlove. He says that more individuals would need this glove in the future. He believes that they can reduce their dependence on medicines and drugs for reducing hand tremors through his invention. The majority of them have proved to have side effects that are adverse for the human body. Moreover, these drugs work for a limited duration of 10 years at the maximum.
How does the GyroGlove work for people suffering from hand tremors?
The GyroGlove works by placing a force that compensates for hand tremors no matter how serious they are. As a result, the patient can retain the balance in their hands. With this technology, the tremors dampen as patients experience their freedom to move their hands the way they want to. This helps them to execute their daily tasks like drinking, eating, and opening a door easily with a key.
How will this glove help people with Parkinson’s disease?
Over 10 million people across the world with Parkinson’s disease are a neurological condition progressive in nature that adversely affects the physical movement and cognitive ability of the person. One of its prevailing symptoms is hand tremors. What begins as a hand tremor with light shaking can escalate into the daily routine of the patient. While these tremors cannot be completely cured, the only way to control them is with medication drugs. However, these drugs carry the side effects like nausea, disturbances in the gait, compulsive behavior, changes in the mood, and more.
Give people with hand tremors the independence they deserve
He says that his company holds dear the ability to assist people who positively impact their lives. The company’s core objective is to help them restore their dignity and give them the independence they deserve for a respectable life. The glove is likely to be launched in the market soon once all the components have been integrated.
As per Joon Faii Ong GyroGlove will help people suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and hand tremors. The causes of these hand tremors are not known; however, they affect the quality of living of the person with them. In addition, other health conditions may cause hand tremors, and they are hyperthyroidism, stroke, and sclerosis.
