Wrist-Worn Device Can Reduce Tremors Caused by Essential Tremor and Parkinson's Disease

The device stimulates the nerves in the wrist to interrupt signals that make the tremor

The device looks like a smartwatch that is designed to be worn on the wrist. It stimulates the nerves in the wrist to send a message to the brain to interrupt the signals that are making different parts of the body tremble. So far, the results of  the early studies and trials are extremely positive. 

The notes on the invention of the device, the cost associated with it and clinical trial results were released towards the end of April. The feedback received so far from patients and professionals prove to be encouraging.
