The 'GyroGlove' is a revolutionary medical device that can help to reduce severe hand tremors. The technology is particularly valuable for those who suffer from Parkinson’s and essential tremors.

The GyroGlove was developed by a startup called 'GyroGear' for the purpose of dampening severe hand tremors. The device relies on a number of gyroscopes that transfer any motion to the glove, thereby stabilizing the hand. According to the company, the sensation of wearing the glove is alike to submerging your hand in a vat of thick syrup. For those afflicted with Parkinson's or essential tremors, this allows for smooth hand motions that may not be possible otherwise.

Early tests indicate a reduction of tremors by over 80 percent, meaning the technology could vastly improve the lives of those who suffer from Parkinson's and essential tremors.
