Tremor Gram October 2013
Liftware has launched!
Created by LiftLabs, this assistive spoon uses tremor-canceling technology to distinguish
motion caused by hand tremor from other types of motion, allowing it to cancel out
the tremor while preserving the user’s intended motion. Liftware is available now
for pre-order at $295.00. Learn more
The gift of research
Bob Delf, owner of Northwest Cellars, is pairing his love of wine with his charitable
nature to raise much-needed funds for essential tremor research. As we approach
the holiday season, purchase a full-bodied 2009 Petit Verdot or a fresh 2011 Sonatina
as a unique gift for a friend or to share at that special holiday gathering. Choose
any wine Northwest Cellars offers and they will adhere our custom-designed IETF
label, plus, 30% of all sales will be donated to ET research. You must note “IETF”
in the comments. Place your order today!
Bob has ET, so discovering the cause of ET, developing better treatments and finding a cure is a high priority. Learn more about Bob, his Seattle area support group, and his upcoming
wine tasting fundraiser in Kirkland, WA. www.essentialtremor.org/BobDelf.

research and more, visit our webcast library and watch the recorded program of your choice.
Focused Ultrasound Phase III
The first essential tremor patient in the phase III trial for the ExAblate Neuro
Focused Ultrasound System has been treated at Stanford University Medical Center
in Stanford, CA. This trial is a multi-center, double-blinded, randomized study
to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of focused ultrasound as an alternative
to other surgical options for treatment of ET. Read more.
