A group of medical students at Imperial College School of London have designed a glove that features a stabilizing device on the back of the hand that will reduce the tremors caused by Parkinson’s, a disease that affects about 1 in 500 people in the world.
Indeed, after two years of research and many prototypes, Faii Ong (26 years) and his team of engineers have turned to the gyroscope in order to develop the GyroGlove, a glove that reduces up to 80% tremors that are caused by this terrible disease. If a person wants to know how GyroGlove works, just imagine you dipping your hand into a thick syrup and trying to stir.
The team that designed this won several awards in 2015, allowing them to develop a more advanced version of the GyroGlove. Faii Ong hopes to be able to market the device in UK at a price that is expected to be between £400 and £600.
