  • Non-Occupational Risk Factors

    Associated With Tremor Beyond occupational risk factors associated with tremor, research indicates several non-occupational factors are also associated with increased risk for tremor. Some of these factors include gender, age, alcohol, use of tobacco, and emotional stress. Each of these factors is explored in the paragraphs below. Gender According to several studies, most women affected with ET have their head and voice more significantly affected than any other parts of the body. On the other hand, men have their hands more affected than any other parts of the body. A study by a group of neurological doctors and researchers, for example, was conducted to investigate the hypothesis that gender and age might impact ET inconsistency (Hubble, Busenbark, Pahwa, Lyons, & Koller, 1997). The examination included 450 ET patients. Results showed head/voice tremor was notably more common among female ET patients. Men had more ET tremor of the hand (Hubble et al., 1997). Age There is no exact age at which ET can take place. In general, the occurrence of ET increases with age. ET is…

  • Deep Sleep Stimulation

    As we know, Parkinson 's disease is a globally occurring mental defect that affects human 's central nervous system. Currently, there is no cure for the disease, and we can 't even diagnose the cause of this disease. DBS is still a developing technology being widely employed to fix neuropsychiatric disorders. It is a surgical therapy employed to curb this deadly disorder as well as essential tremor. The method involves the patients undergoing surgery. This surgery uses some high technology to…

  • Mainshocks Research Paper

    The area under the surface of the earth where the earthquake takes place is called the hypocenter, and the area above this place is called the epicenter. In some cases a seismic tremor has foreshocks. These are littler quakes that happen in the same place as the bigger tremor that takes after. Researchers can 't tell that a seismic tremor is a foreshock until the bigger quake happens. (USGS, pg 3). The biggest, principle quake is known as the mainshock. Mainshocks dependably have consequential…

    however they are still continuing their studies. Paragraph 2 ( skipping for now, sorry :( ) Parkinson’s disease consists of four initial types of symptoms, which are: Resting Tremor, Bradykinesia, Rigidity, and Postural Instability. Resting Tremor is one of the first stages that the person will start to experience, “about 70 percent of people experience a slight tremor in the hand or foot on one side of the body, or less commonly in the jaw or face” (Primary Motor Symptoms, 2017). “The…

  • Deep Brain Simulation Summary

    This summary consists of the experience and results obtained by different scientists after manipulating the brains of people, to control and monitor the thalamus, and other parts of the brain. These experiments allow the scientists involved in the study to study the effect of deep brain stimulation and the effect that is has on sleep. For instance, deep brain stimulation abbreviates (DBS). The stimulation consists of performing different surgeries on patients that had experienced tremors with no…

  • Vibration Absorber Essay

    This chapter includes the design procedure for the vibration absorber system made up of SMA springs. The vibration absorber is consisting of a mass M on which we mounted a bracelet which is made up of four mass-spring-damper systems as shown in fig. two vertical and two horizontal. This system would follow the principles of inertia to counterbalance the forces of a tremor. Let’s assume, throughout a tremor the hand will moves in X and Y direction and also sometime it will rotate between X and Y…
