Many people don’t fully appreciate the importance that the ability to write plays in our lives. It is a skill that we rely on every day and it is vital to our sense of independence. Signing checks or contracts, filling out forms or simply writing a letter to a loved one… these are personal matters that people want to do for themselves.
Unfortunately, some people face the challenges associated with conditions such as Arthritis and Parkinson’s, which affect their ability to write. Consequently, their sense of self-reliance can be eroded, especially if their ability to write is reduced to the point at which they must rely on others to write on their behalf.
Conventional stick-shaped pens rely on the strength of one’s grip and they the force the user to squeeze tightly, contort their wrist and finally press the pen down into the page. This emphasis on grip strength is at the root of the problem for people affected by certain writing disabilities. The PenAgain’s ergonomic index finger cradle takes advantage of the natural weight of the hand to generate the pressure needed to apply ink to paper. Its crutch-like design steadies the hand and engages the whole arm so it allows its user to relax and guide it, rather than forcefully grip it, which reduces hand fatigue.
The PenAgain’s “Y” formation and large tripod gripping surfaces improve hand posture and encourage a healthy natural wrist position which helps to increase writing motion efficiency and reduce grip related hand stress. These features make it an outstanding tool for those suffering from Parkinson’s or Arthritis as well as carpal tunnel and RSIs.
Sometimes a seemingly simple innovation such as an ergonomic pen design can lead to a real positive change in the quality of people’s lives. We have received hundreds of emails from people who have said that the PenAgain has literally changed their lives. Try the PenAgain today and rewrite your future.
