Recommendations from health professionals
Professor Lesley Findley, Consultant Neurologist
“Tremor is a common disability. And this type of technology offers a way forward for individuals in terms of everyday activities. This for instance will be incredibly useful for act of drinking, which is an essential and important social activity. And patients with tremor are often very disabled in terms of being able to socialise in restaurants and the home because they’re unable to pick upa glass or a cup - an activity that will exajerate their tremor. I’m impressed with the simplicity and the potential use of this type of technology.”
Steve Ford, CEO, Parkinson's UK
"Parkinson's is a complex condition that can make even the most simple of tasks - like drinking a cup of tea - incredibly difficult at times. We are pleased to be working with Chris on this new invention that can make easily enjoying a cup of tea a reality once again for the 127,000 people living with Parkinson's in the UK."
Dr Michael Wright, Guys and St Thomas' Charity

“I definitely would recommend patients use it. I think it's brilliant.
In 2014, Coventry University did a usablity study of handSteady with 10 people.
