Pathological tremor can be a disabling condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Tremor reduction strategies based on peripheral electrical stimulation of afferent pathways are a promising alternative minimizing the adverse effects of traditional solutions, although a better understanding of the targeted mechanisms is required. Here, we performed a pilot study with two stimulation strategies based on bilateral and multi-joint stimulation below motor threshold, which were tested in two patients with Essential Tremor.
