    Dr. Peter Tass of Tass Lab at Stanford University has claimed some preliminary results that show patients making marked improvement of their Parkinson’s symptoms by using gloves with patterned fingertip vibrations. Given that information and a lack of access to the “gloves”, I began to experiment with a simple back massager type device. Although the results of my tests were unscientific and subject to bias, the vibrations on my fingers did seem to help.
