    Kudos to the inventor, a much needed item for somebody who has Parkinson's.

    I have a moderate essential tremor, not Parkinsons, and I'd be interested too.

    I like this idea. Not perfect, but beats having electrodes placed in the brain. Maybe not as effective either. I admit that I have Parkinson's Disease. I will keep an eye on this idea. We should all pray for a cure for this disease. This will not kill me but it will impact the quality of my life as I get older.

    Thank you for that valuable link. I do Laser Welding of tooling molds. Imagine trying to hold a 4 thou diameter wire still enough to place into a weld pool 20 thou in diameter.
    I have drugs to control my micro tremors in left hand... so please accept my public thanks for sharing. Regards, Buster.
