essential tremor Can't Post

Hello,

I'm thinking about doing a skydiving jump, but have a question. I suffer from a tremor which effects my body from the waste upwards. The main parts of my body I have difficulty with is my left hand, more than my right. Would this cause a problem with myself skydiving? I think the rest of my body would be ok, it's just my hands i'm concerened about the most.

Thanks.

It would not affect you doing a tandem skydive but sounds like it would not be a good idea doing a solo. You will need to speak to an instructor in person on the dropzone.

I think with the right training and an SOS system you would be fine. Talk to some local DZs.
good luck!
