This is an earlier video (from 12th February 2016) which we never fully released due to the not-so-good quality of the picture and sound. However, this week I received a tweet from Selfie4Parkinsons about a campaign to raise awareness of Parkinson's, which asks people to take a “selfie with something silly on your head” and then share it to social media. This reminded me of our Dyskinesia Control Hat concept which we had developed through self-experimentation. As I indicated in my reply to the tweet, I have something not only silly, but also quite profound on my head regularly!
We came up with this idea when we noticed that if I put pressure on my head, in just the right spot, it could completely switch off the Dyskinesia, motivated by a video of Paul Davis, a Facebook friend, demonstrating how simply putting a device for "Transcranial Pulsed Electromagnetic Stimulation" on his head did the trick too. He looked a little silly too, but his is an even more profound result.
The issue with our hat is it's makeshift and tying the bathroom robe belt around the right place with the right pressure isn't easy to get right. We would therefore be very interested in partnering with investors, entrepreneurs or manufacturers to design a more robust piece of head gear (and perhaps one which looks just a little less silly).
