When you have a disease like Parkinson’s, your whole life gets harder. Just take eating for example: Shaky hands make it nearly impossible to get food from plate to mouth without spilling — often on yourself. The daily experience of eating becomes frustrating and embarrassing. I have someone in my life who struggles with hand tremors, so I was so excited to see there’s new technology out there that can help her with this.
It’s not a cure, and it doesn’t address all the other struggles tremors create, but I’m glad to know inventions like this can make it easier for people with tremors to live happier lives with less effort and more dignity while we wait for a cure.
