Parkinson’s disease takes place when the cells in the nerve called neurons are impaired. The brain controls them, and in the event of death or impairment, the brain stops or reduces dopamine production. Scientists are yet to determine the causes as to what causes this dopamine to die. As a result, people suffer from the involuntary shaking of the hands and slowness in movement.
Joon Faii Ong is the inventor of Gyro Glove, a unique wearable device that helps control hand tremors. He is the CEO and the Founder of Gyro Gear, the company that manufactures Gyro Glove. The team of specialists here works in close association with patients of essential tremors and Parkinson’s disease to get the notable advantages with the use of the glove.
Today, Gyro Gear is backed by esteemed industry experts in musculoskeletal biodynamics, serial entrepreneurs, clinicians, and mechanical engineers who are working actively to create solutions towards stability problems.
An insight into Parkinson’s disease in people
When it comes to Parkinson’s disease, people find it difficult to control the body’s automatic functions like blood pressure and heart rate. They lose the ends of the nerve that create norepinephrine, the key chemical messenger of the body’s sympathetic nervous system that administers the body’s auto functions like blood pressure and heart rate.
This loss of norepinephrine helps explain some of Parkinson’s Disease symptoms like fatigue, erratic blood pressure, reduced food movement via the digestive tract, and a sudden dip in blood pressure when the person stands up or stays lying down. So you must watch out for such sign and be careful
Several brain cells in patients with Parkinson’s Diseasehave a component known as Lewy Bodies- this is an unusual clump of protein alpha-synuclein. Researchers in the medical industry is trying to understand both the regular and the abnormal functions of the above and its association with genetic mutations that influence Parkinson’s Disease and another condition known as Lewy body dementia.
Primary symptoms of Parkinson’s disease to identify
Parkinson’s Disease’s key symptoms are tremors or the shaking of the hands, jaws, legs, or head,stiffness of the trunk or limbs, impaired coordination and balance (mostly leading to falls), and reduced movement. Other symptoms like emotional changes and depression, difficulty in chewing food and swallowing, speaking, skin issues, disruption in sleep, and constipation.
There are some cases of Parkinson’s disease that are genetic. They are hereditary, and some of them can be traced to a particular genetic mutation. In a majority of instances, it has been observed that this condition takes place randomly. This means that it might not run in the family.
As per Joon Faii Ong several researchers think that Parkinson’s disease results from the combination of specific genetic and environmental factors like, for instance, exposure to toxins. His invention, the Gyro Glove, is just a small step to help patients control hand tremors for a better quality of life.
