CPT has provided support and guidance and our involvement has ensured this project and resulting product is relevant, accurate and we hope will make a significant difference to those living with tremor.

GyroGear has been named in this year’s Nominet Trust 100, joining previous awardees including Kickstarter, Firefox, Khan Academy, Arduino, 23andme and Bitcoin.

Curated by the Nominet Trust, the UK’s biggest social technology funder, this year’s NT100 was judged by Facebook, O2 Telefonica, the Guardian, Big Lottery Fund, Comic Relief, Creative England, Latimer, Nominet, Oxfam and Salesforce. Together with 99 other awardees, GyroGear celebrates the most inspiring uses of technology for social good from around the world. 

Gathered from over 540 public nominations, GyroGear's inclusion in the list validates their work developing intelligent wearables to stabilise hand tremors, and most crucially, recognises the fight to restore quality of life to those with tremor, especially those with Parkinson’s disease.

“Around a third of people living with Parkinson’s report that tremor has a significant impact on quality of life, hindering people in undertaking everyday tasks such as cooking and typing. GyroGear is finding solutions to counterbalance the impact of tremor in day to day life and we are so pleased to be working with them to develop these ideas and devices,” says Helen Matthews COO, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust. “Going forward we will be seeking volunteers based in London who can help shape this project further”, she added.

If you are interested in helping test this product and live in London please contact Helen.
