Parkinson's is a horrible, awful disease. The slow theft of everything one holds dear. One of the worst things is does immediately is take away one's ability to move around.

I remember learning about the work of Thomas Reiss shortly after my grandmother was beginning to decline steadily from Parkinson's. Today, one of my favorite physicists has an excellent blog entry about his clever glasses to help people with akinesia walk. Glasses to help with walking?! Oh yes. I wish they'd had these puppies a decade ago...
