GyroGear Ltd

GyroGear Ltd is developing the GyroGlove, a novel wearable platform that mechanically stabilises hand tremors. The GyroGlove couples high-performance mechanical gyroscopes to the user's hands.

This allows the aerospace-grade gyroscopes to instantaneously and proportionally reduce these tremors to restore daily function. Future products and services include digital health, rehabilitation and physiotherapy.

GyroGear Ltd is developing the GyroGlove, a novel wearable platform that mechanically stabilises hand tremos. The GyroGlove couples high-performance mechanical gyroscopes to the user's hands. This allows the aerospace-grade gyroscopes to instantaneously and proportionally reduce these tremors to restore daily function. Our first device is amied at over 200 million people globally suffering from uncontrollable hand termors. Typified by Parkinson's Diasease (PD) and Essential Termor (ET), hand termors are often misdiagonsed by even the medical community, and are poorly managed in the community. Our technology seeks to bridge the large gap between conventional medication and risky brain surgery. Future products and services include digital health, rehabilitation and physiotheraphy.

The GyroGlove is a wearable device containing high-performance, miniaturised gyroscopes. Mechanical gyroscopes are commonly used today for both control (aerospace) and stabilisation (boats). Their counteracting force is already well-known and established: the GyroGlove uses the simple concept to effectively reduce hand tremors. Our innovation is in bringing together technologies across various industries (precision mechanical engineering, programming and electronics) to a forgotten, yet debilitating, medical condition. This is done in a small, user-acceptable and effective package. It is patent-pending, and we have confirmed freedom to operate.

The focus on improving quality of life, freedom and independence is paramount. The uniqueness of gyroscopes, in comparison to other technologies is that it reacts instantaneously and proportionally to the force of the tremor. It is the same principle as a spining top tyring to stay upright. Furthermore, as in F1 racing cars (KERS systems) and in aerospace, the gyroscopes provide a significant amount of force in a compact, lightweight system that is easy to modulate and deploy on demand. Other technologies (e.g.exoskeletons, weighted gloves) are unable to provide this.
