GyroGlove Gyroscope Hand-stabilizing Glove

Gyroscope is one of the many great inventions by the human race. It has been used in many applications ranging from navigation to autopilot systems to fun stuff like RC airplanes and helicopters, and in bicycles to help children learn how to keep balance on two wheels. Recently, at the CES 2024, we learned that gyroscope has another wholesome application: keeping the hand tremors of people with Parkinson’s Disease at bay.

At the recent consumer electronics show in Vegas, Singapore-based GyroGear launched GyroGlove, a forearm-length glove that boasts advanced gyroscopic technology that will reduce hand tremors instantly, thus allowing people with hand tremors to perform tasks like buttoning up a shirt, moving a cup of coffee, or writing.

It is not a cure for the condition. It is an assistive technology that will allow people with hand tremors to regain a certain level of control and independence.

GyroGear consists of three parts: the harness i.e. the fabric glove that is almost a forearm length, the stabilization module, and a battery pack. Inside the stabilization module is a proprietary gyroscope which the company said rotates 4x faster than jet turbine blades and that it provides “100x precision that surpasses a computer drive.”

The wrist-worn glove weighs in about 580g (1.27 lbs), including the rechargeable lithium polymer batteries that are good for four hours of continuous per charge. The components are intentionally designed to be chunky to make it easier for people with hand tremors to handle. This also includes having large buttons, as well as large icons and fonts on the digital display.

GyroGear said GyroGlove is registered with the US FDA and the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) as a medical device.

The GyroGlove is a real product (a lot of) money can buy. It is available to order globally for a cool US$5,899. But for a limited time, pre-order limited-run gloves are going for a grand cheaper at US$4,899.
