How it started
On a winter afternoon, our founder Mark was having coffee with his grandmother, Mima.
As she took her first sips, her tremor flared up. Her hands shook uncontrollably making her spill half the cup. Mark rushed to aid her burnt hands, shocked at how difficult daily activities could become with tremors.
Searching for answers
He decided to consult his aunt, a doctor who treats Essential Tremors
She told him the only viable solutions were medications with side-effects, an invasive surgery, or Botox injections. The lack of effective choices was appalling. As an engineer, Mark began brainstorming for solutions, leading to the ideation the Steadi-One.
A journey begins
A team forms as they venture to make the lives of everyone with tremors easier
As a team they joined the University of Toronto's renowned Impact Centre and have attended several support groups across Ontario with high hopes of improving the lives of anyone with hand tremors and developing the solution needed & deserved.
