Parkinson’s disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET) are two common but unrelated diseases that cause movement disorders often involving with severe tremor. The two diseases affects tens of millions of people worldwide, but there is no known cure for them. The tremor not only pose difficulty in completing daily tasks but also impair patients’ social confidence. The objective of this project is to develop a wearable tremor reduction device for the upper limb. The device is obviously different from any previous devices because it is compact, lightweight, comfortable to wear and effective. It is expected to help patients manage the tremor symptoms and regain their normal life.
