Earthquake Engineering brings about Steady Hands to Australia

16 Mar 2020

Healthport and Steadiwear have been working together since 2017 to bring the Steadi-One hand stabiliser glove to market. This innovative piece of engineering brings steadiness to the shaky hands of people with Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s Disease. It allows people to reclaim control of their daily lives from drinking a cup of tea, to writing or putting on make-up.

Steadi-One is based on cutting edge technology inspired from earthquake stabilisers in buildings. It works through a “smart” fluid that stiffens and acts together with a counter-weight. The counter-weight moves in the opposite direction of your tremor while still allowing a full range of motion. It is also battery free and the soft cotton glove makes it comfortable to wear.

All of us at Healthport are very proud to be finally bringing the Steadi-One to market in Australia in 2020. The Steadi-One hand stabiliser glove will truly change the lives of Australian’s that are looking to maximise their own independence, while living with Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s!
