Promising new hybrid therapy for treatment of tremors
Clinical trials have begun for a therapy that could make a big difference for those living with Parkinson's disease or essential tremor disorder.
London-based Movement Disorders Diagnostic Technologies Inc. (MDDT) has created a first-of-its-kind technology developed from London Movement Disorder Centre research being done at University Hospital.
The non-invasive TremorTek sleeve analyzes biological changes that occur when a patient experiences tremors, instead of using a visual assessment for sometimes very complex movements.
According to the London Movement Disorder Centre, the video below shows the difference the treatment can make in a patient between their first visit and a six-week follow-up appointment.
