In the US, roughly 7 million individuals suffer from some form of tremor with over 200,000 suffering from essential tremors. Essential tremor is an involuntary rhythmic muscle movement often affecting the arms and hands of individuals. Patients' fine motor abilities are impacted causing difficulty in performing daily tasks. Our device collects motion data and the EMG data from the muscles involved with wrist flexion/extension, wrist pronation/supination, and radial/ulnar deviation.
