How the Steadi-One came into being...
On a winter afternoon, our founder Mark was having coffee with his grandmother.
As she took her first sips, her essential hand tremor flared up. Her hands shook uncontrollably making her spill half the cup. Mark rushed to her aid but it was too late. She had burned her hands. Mark was shocked at how difficult daily activities could become with tremors which inspired him to begin his search..
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.
