A viral 2018 video shows a retired British Royal Marine suffering from degenerative Parkinson’s disease appearing to have his life changed after receiving deep brain stimulator (DBS) treatment.
The video shows a man sitting in a chair suffering from tremors apparently due to Parkinson’s disease, which affects the body’s nervous system. The man is asked to do tasks – touch his nose, pick up a glass to drink out of – but is unable to accomplish them.
As the video progresses, a woman announces that she will turn stimulators on and they will try the task again. The man’s loved ones look on, visibly worried and upset at his condition.
After turning a device on, the retired British Royal Marine’s life changes. He is able to touch his nose and the woman’s finger repeatedly with substantially less tremors and easily picks up a glass of water and drinks it.
