WHAT IS VILIM ball?
VILIM ball is a therapeutic device for hand tremor reduction. It relieves hand trembling symptoms for Essential tremor patients. Eating, drinking, writing and other ordinary tasks are complicated to perform with shaky hands. However, the VILIM ball is here to help!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The device is intended to use in home or professional environment as a therapy device to temporary reduce hand tremor caused by Essential tremor.
VILIM ball’s working principles are based on mechanical vibrations, the positive effects of which were observed back in the late 19th century by the French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot.
Mechanical vibrations affect the nervous and muscular tissues in the hand that exchange nerve signals with the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex controls the movement of the human body. Mechanical vibrations of VILIM ball change the nerve signals transmitted between the cerebral cortex and the arm and suppresses hand tremors.
There are 4 main principles of VILIM ball:
WHY VILIM ball?
Reduces hand tremor
Studies show, that the amplitude of the hand tremor decreases significantly
The effect is felt immediately after treatment
Lasting effect up to 4 h
After treatment, the effect is felt for up to 4 hours
The artificial intelligence algorithm analyzes hand tremor and adapts the device's effect to each patient individually
It is sufficient to hold the device in your hand for no longer than 10 minutes to feel the positive effect
Safe to use
The device has been tested in internationally accredited laboratories according to standards 60601-1-11; 60601-1; 55011; 61000-4-2 et al.
No need to change batteries, the device charges just like your mobile phone and is even simpler: VILIM ball has a magnetic charger that attaches itself to the device
The invention of the device is protected by an international patent
The operation of the device is based on personalized mechanical vibration therapy
Easy to use
It is very easy to use. Vibration therapy starts when Button cap is pressed and switches itself off when the time for therapy is completed (after 10 minutes).
The device weighs just over 100 g and is the size of a tennis ball, so it can easily travel with you
Wrist strap for safety
An additional wrist strap helps ensure that the device does not fall out of your hands during therapy

Mobile application for hand stability measurement
We have released an app designed for smartphones to measure and assess hand stability.
The main components of assessment which are monitored by the app:
- Measure action stability by drawing figures.
- Measure resting stability by keeping the hand still while doing nothing.
- Analyze progression by seeing measurement results history graph.
