Developments have been made on GyroGlove – the innovative tremor-reducing glove – and now the GyroGear team behind the technology are asking the Parkinson’s community to complete a survey on the pricing of their device. The survey takes five minutes to complete and is anonymous. Your views and insights from the survey will help inform the pricing of the glove.

“The data will allow us to push for the most reasonable price without compromising on quality. It will inform which components we choose, where we manufacture, and how we design in order to make the GyroGlove an affordable and useful purchase,” say the team. “This information is going to be pivotal in the coming months, as we finalise device specifications.”

This latest move suggests GyroGlove is in the final stages of development and that it won’t be long until the product hit the shelves.

The survey will be available until 12 October.

    Like any Parkinson’s person with tremors I would pay just about anything which is exactly what it will cost – no one will know the real cost as is the case with all pharmaceutical products. Before I recommend a price I would like to know more about the product and how much the cost is to make and market it.
