Support the campaign for focussed ultrasound in Scotland

Mary's campaign for focussed ultrasound in Scotland continues. 

Mary who runs the Scottish Tremor Society has had essential tremor since birth, and is currently treated with a deep brain stimulation.

She is campaigning for the need for a focus ultrasound device in north-east Scotland. Focussed ultrasound, perhaps unsurprisingly, does what is says on the tin – it focuses ultrasound on specific parts of the brain related to tremors, and can be of great benefit to those with tremor conditions, such as essential tremor, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis (MS). And, it’s non-invasive. ‘Not everyone wants electrodes attached to their brain,’ Mary says, ‘and this would give them hope for alternative treatment.’

Support the campaign by signing the petition.
