The History of Tremelo

Dr. Nguyen first had his idea for the Tremelo in 2014.

After two years of product development, the patent for the Tremelo was officially filed in 2016.

The Five Microns corporation was established in 2017.

Five Microns conducted a national research study in 2018 on the potential marketplace for Essential Tremors.

In 2018, Five Microns hit $450,000 raised in investments for development of the Tremelo.

In 2019, the Tremelo reached new heights, reducing tremors in patients with E.T. by up to 85-90%.

The finalized commercial design for Tremelo is set to be completed in October of 2019.

Tremelo is projected to be available in December 2019. Just in time to enjoy the holidays with steady hands.
