Weighted cuffs to reduce shake

Weighted cuffs to reduce shakeThe client, who has Parkinson’s disease, likes to dine out and work at his bench. He finds his forearms tend to shake when using cutlery utensils and small tools.

Linen cuffs were made and pocketed to take 10mm diameter steel rods to make a total weight of 680g to act as ‘vibration’ dampers. The rods may be removed to enable laundering of the cuffs.

The client is able to enjoy meals out and work at his bench with more confidence.
