What are tremors?

Tremors are involuntary shakes in the arms, commonly seen in Parkinson’s Disease and Essential Tremor. Over 22 million people worldwide are affected by tremor disorders. Current treatment options have limited effect and may cause multiple side-effects.

The impact of tremor

A tremor in the arm or hand can cause serious difficulties in daily activities such as writing, drinking and eating. Next to these functional impairments, tremor can influence a patient’s social life. Many patients are ashamed of their tremor and therefore avoid social activities.

A new solution

STIL has developed a innovative solution that suppresses tremors: an anti-tremor orthosis. This medical device contains specialized dampers that suppress the tremor, but do not restrict voluntary motion.
