Started in 2015 by Tiffany, iStopShaking is an IoT device using miniaturized gyroscopes, with gloves for the hands and braces for the feet and neck, to reduce essential tremors of patients with Parkinson’s disease. Powered by a battery with multiple intel-wireless chips, each device contains an accelerometer to maintain control of the gyroscopes and a dial to measure the intensity of the spin, allowing counterbalance of the tremors. The iStopShaking patent was filed in June of 2018, and granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in June of 2020.
