A Pen for Parkinson’s

Dopa Solution’s ARC is the first pen specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s living with Micrographic. This condition can result in cramped, uncomfortable handwriting causing patients to give up on writing or drawing altogether. The pen features a high-frequency vibration motor that stimulates muscles in the hand while also reducing the effort required to move the pen across the paper. Trials with 14 people have demonstrated an improvement in writing of 86%!
