Abstract: Hand tremor influences a huge number of individuals around the world. Tremor is characterised as unintended, cadenced muscle development. Albeit most tremors neither reason serious medical issues nor threaten life, most patients experience many troubles in performing everyday exercises. It is humiliating to numerous individuals, particularly more seasoned people. Tremor negatively affects personal satisfaction and decreases the ability to perform everyday life undertakings such as eating, drinking, writing, and changing clothing. Some patients with mild tremor do not visit doctors if tremor does not hinder their daily life activities. Their situations often worsen over time. There is currently very few to almost no external solution existing to cope with this medical condition. We have developed a glove that is able to dynamically conceive the motion of a user's hand and ascertain the difference between intentional movement and unintentional movement. Further, we have quantified, verified and attempted to provide a haptic response to the users' fingers with the help of coin motors to help counteract the unwanted vibration.
