Systems and methods for tracking unintentional high amplitude muscle movements of a user and stabilizing a handheld tool are described. The method may include detecting motion of a housing of the handheld tool when manipulated by a user while the user is performing a task with a user-assistive device attached to an attachment arm of the handheld tool, and storing the detected motion in a memory of the handheld tool as motion data. Furthermore, the method may include controlling a first motion generating mechanism and a second motion generating mechanism by generating a first motion signal and a second motion signal that respectively drive the first motion generating mechanism in a first degree of freedom and the second motion generating mechanism in a second degree of freedom to stabilize motion of the user-assistive device attached to the attachment arm of the handheld tool.
