“Hey! So we were thinking of looking into Parkinson’s and some kind of weighted/compression sleeves. I have seen the effect of weighted blankets and thought that maybe we can somehow relate it to a compression sleeve to help fine motor skills. Also thinking about maybe splinting or casting to help with wrist stability for individuals with Parkinson’s to help with tremors. ” – Jennifer

Was really nervous because I knew nothing about Parkinson’s but it was personal for a team member and that made all the difference.

An initial article that Jennifer found.
