Medications do not do much when it comes to helping people control essential tremors. They only treat them for some time and stop their effect with age. When these tremors aggravate, patients have no choice but to live with them. This makes it hard for them to carry out normal day-to-day tasks without dropping things.
Joon Faii Ong – Creating the GyroGlove
Joon Faii Ong is the CEO and the Founder of the esteemed company in wearable technology, GyroGear. He is the inventor of the GyroGlove, which he created as a technological cure for essential hand tremors. He has completed his degree in medicine from the Imperial College in London and is a credible name in both the tech and healthcare industry.
Years ago, he was assigned to take care of an elderly patient who was 103 years old. He saw she was desperately struggling to drink a bowl of soup. She kept spilling the soup all over herself because her hands were shaking. When he asked the nurses what she was suffering from, they replied that she no longer was responding to medications. Her plight so moved him that he resolved to do something for patients like her in the future, and this is what led him to establish GyroGear.
An innovative wonder for people with hand tremors
The GyroGlove is indeed an innovative wonder by GyroGear. It is today a hot topic in the tech and healthcare sectors for all the correct reasons. He has combined the marvels of both technology and healthcare to create a unique product to help people regain independence when it comes to carrying out regular and daily tasks in life. Experts in both the healthcare and technology industries believe that once the GyroGlove is manufactured and distributed, it sure will help millions of people go back with dignity to their normal lives.
How does the GyroGlove function?
The gyroscope technology is used in the GyroGlove. Gyroscopes are popular in the aerospace industry, and they are spinning discs. This cutting-edge technology works in the same manner as children’s spinning toy tops. The momentum that these gyroscopes use to stay still or stand in any place at any angle provides it with the ability to proportionately and quickly counter force that comes in from any direction effectively.
He adds for some people who still have doubts and concerns about these gyroscopes; they will find this technology is used in some of the most complicated or complex machines in the aerospace industry, from rockets to satellites.
Joon Faii Ong searched and found a unique way to deploy the principles of gyroscopes to counteract involuntary hand tremors with his invention- the GyroGlove. This glove is simple in design and has the ability to effectively stabilize the movements of a shaking hand with success. Along with his skilled team of tech, engineering, and healthcare experts, he works on its planning, betterment of design, and testing. He is currently working with patients to assess their feedback and ensure that the device intended for them is the best version of the device they will get when released in the market.
