Jame is a medical device aimed at monitoring and controlling hand tremor, a disabling symptom that occurs in chronic neurodegenerative diseases as Parkinson’s and Essential Tremor, thanks to AI and personalized non-invasive stimulation. We strongly believe that combining biomedical technology and design principles could lead to a new approach to support ageing people, developing non-stigmatizing devices, designed to impart aesthetic dignity to the patient wearing them.
