GyroGlove ..promising wearable technology!

GyroGlove is a small lightweight stability device that promises to help steady hand tremors by using an old technology – gyroscopes! It fits on the back of the hand, locks easily into place, and integrates intelligent functionality.

GyroGlove is currently under development by a team of engineers, designers and medics. An international mix of young minds comprised of students and graduates from Imperial College London, the team is backed by industry-leading mentors ranging from experts in musculoskeletal biodynamics to senior engineering professors, to clinicians and serial entrepreneurs.

Learn more about this exciting new possibility – and the companion smartphone app that intelligently tracks the progress of the tremor – at!

Please note: GyroGlove is the third assistive glove for hand tremors announced and discussed on this blog. The other two are:

  1. Readi-Steadi Glove invented by Krista Madere, LOTR, from the NeuroMedical Center Clinic, which was posted on June 24, 2015.

  2. TremorX weighted glove developed by Columbus Academy Students, which was posted on December 17, 2014.
