Wearable Devices

Steadi-Two

The Steadi-Two is a glove designed to reduce tremors for people with Parkinson’s disease and essential tremors. This assistive device uses two magnets to control a disk that moves in equal and opposite directions in response to a tremor. The Steadi-Two is lightweight, battery-free, and non-intrusive. Additionally, the glove can be worn interchangeably on either hand, and it comes in two sizes (small and large). The glove is machine washable when detached from the stabilizing component. 

In lab tests, the Steadi-Two provided users with up to 80% tremor relief! The Steadi-Two was designed to provide tremor relief without causing any of the side effects associated with medications or surgeries. As such, the Steadi-Two is a risk-free tremor stabilization device. The Steadi-Two is currently available for pre-order. The device retails for $499 USD, and pre-orders are expected to ship by May 2022. Steadiwear offers free shipping to all customers based in the USA and Canada. Click here to learn more.
