The Innovation team is a student-led team comprised of HAND members which focuses on the development of the iStopShaking device. This device is a patented design that uses gyroscopic stabilization and a multitude of sensors to minimize physical tremors that occur due to neuro degenerative disease such as Parkinson’s. Members of the IT team are split into two teams, one half that works on developing the gyroscopic motors and physical glove design, while the other develops the code and software for accelerometer-based monitoring. By working in closely knit groups, we aim to further develop the iStopShaking device and ultimately make a lasting impact in assistive devices for individuals suffering from neuro degenerative disease.

Patent #10,694,989

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 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.
