GyroGear update!

Exciting news: testing of tremor stabilisation technology is happening in London this February. Below is information from the GyroGear team:
“GyroGear is a London-based company developing GyroGlove, a wearable device for hand tremor reduction. The device is in engineering stage and multiple trials are going on. Next round of tests of GyroGlove prototypes designed to stabilise hand and wrist are commencing on January 29th and will run till February 16th.

The company is seeking participants diagnosed with Essential Tremor willing to participate in testing of the device and contribute to the research.

The tests are normally carried out in London lab (Islington) take on average 1.5 hours. 

GyroGear realises that travelling to London can be challenging for some people who are willing to participate in the research. Please, contact the company if you are located outside of London and we will do our best to arrange testing at a closer location.  

If you are seeking a non-medication solution please consider participation. This is the chance to make difference and create a game-changer for so many people with ET.

You can contact GyroGear by sending an email to testing@gyrogear.co or giving a call to one of the researchers at 073 78 151845 (Nadya).”

LLWET 2018 Calendar

We have included our LLWET PEACE acronym into a calendar that you may like to print out.

Calendar 2018 PEACE sig

PEACE acronym doves Green jpeg

Pace      =     Pace my day

Energy  =    Use it wisely

Activity =    Include at least one activity each day

Calm      =    Take a few long, slow, smooth deep breaths throughout the day.

Enjoy      =    Enjoy the moment – Include fun elements in my day.

So how do I use the acronym? In a variety of ways. It could include just one of the words, or sometimes meditating on the whole word “Peace” visualizing it embracing everything.  I’ll simply go with the flow and enjoy what transpires.

Wishing everyone PEACE in 2018.
