Hand tremor reduction

Hand shake reduction for Essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease

The results from ongoing research shows that ViLim Ball device could be effective on reducing hand tremor:

Archimedo spiralė po terapijos rankų drebėjimo mažinimas  Terapijos rankų drebėjimo mažinimas matomas prieš ir po  Glotnesnė spiralė po terapijos rankų drebėjimo mažinimas  Terapijos rankų drebėjimo mažinimas kairei ir dešinei rankoms

Intermediate results

The maximum reduction of hand tremor on the X axis was 78 %. The average reduction by 20 % of hand tremor was noted. During the research, 10 of 13 patients felt tremor reduction and the average reduction was 48 %.

The maximum reduction of hand tremor on the Y axis was 94 %. The average reduction by 21 % of hand tremor was noted. During the research, 10 of 13 patients felt tremor reduction and the average reduction was 50 %.  These results show the effectiveness of the ViLim Ball device.

The research is still on the way and at the end of it results will be published in the scientific journal. Current results gives a proof that the methodology is effective and could help people with hand tremor easily perform daily activities like writing, eating or other. The further researches will be dedicated for the optimization of the device effectiveness.

According to previous studies, the vibrational therapy could reduce hand tremor and stiffness for Parkinson’s disease by 25% and 24%, respectively. (Haas, 2006).

King et al. (2009)   have found that vibrational therapy could significantly decrease rigidity, and tremor. Results of their initial investigation provide support for vibration therapy as a non-pharmacological treatment alternative.

The next research describes the combination of the whole body vibration therapy and exercises. It was observed that this kind of therapy gives short term benefit for human motor system, posture and daily activities (Edmonston , 2016).

Heiko (2009) and others have found that the whole body vibration therapy significantly reduces hand tremor and stiffness as well as step lenght and walking speed.
