Amazing Invention Helps People with Parkinson's Write Again

23 views

Graphic designer Emma Lawton was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 29. For the past three years, her hands have become increasingly unstable, making it very difficult for her to write and draw straight lines. The disease has completely affected her career and stopped her from enjoying her passion.

Until now. Computer scientist Haiyan Zhang recently came up with an invention to solve Emma’s problem and completely change her life.

When Emma tried on the invention, appropriately named “The Emma,” she broke down in tears because of how well it worked.

“It makes me forget that I have a tremor,” she said. “I’ve actually just written my name for the first time in ages.”

Check out how Zhang helped Emma rediscover her love for design here:
