Hello all, I was speaking with a friend recently and she was telling me she'd heard of a bracelet or watch that would be put on sale after successful testing that helps with Parkinson's tremors. Does anyone know about this? I'd be interested to hear some feedback.

Thanks,

Charles

Hello Courtney.  I haven't heard of the bracelet or watch for Parkinsons tremor, but my tremor is pretty well controlled by my current medication.  That medication is Duodopa Intestinal gel, delivered directly to my duodenum via a peg tube in my stomach.

@parkinsonman This is interesting, I haven't heard of such a device. This may seem like a silly comparison, but I've seen on telly that plastic surgeons when doing injections will sometimes but a vibrating devise next to the injection place on the skin and the vibration "tricks" the brain into not feeling the pain of the injection. I wonder if this is a similar concept. I find science like that so fascinating.
