Medical and technological wonders series: GyroGear’s GyroGlove
GyroGlove, the new product from entrepreneur Joon Faii Ong and tech company GyroGear, is a gadget designed to eliminate hand tremors caused by Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s disease. In the past few years, GyroGlove has been recognized by healthcare and technological organizations globally.
GyroGear founder and leader Joon Faii Ong conceptualized and designed GyroGlove, in hopes of helping millions of people in the future. Faii Ong also aims to reduce the use of drugs for counteracting hand tremors, since most of the medication for hand tremors carry considerable side effects.
GyroGlove’s main function is to emit a force that counteracts or compensates for hand tremors, Joon Faii Ong mentions. It’s this force that helps patients with hand tremor maintain balance and control of their hands despite their condition. In fact, it can be said that GyroGlove restores close to normal function, which would surely come as a huge relief to people who have been suffering from Parkinson’s and other diseases and disorders that cause hand tremors.
Essential Tremor affects approximately 200 million people globally. Parkinson’s affects the cognitive ability and physical movement of over 10 million people worldwide. GyroGlove has the potential to help a majority of them.
Joon Faii Ong also points out that GyroGlove has the ability to help those with hand tremors caused by disorders such as multiple sclerosis, hyperthyroidism, as well as strokes.
