Product Details
Holding pens and pencils can be difficult for some, and even lead to cramping and nerve damage. Designed by a certified physician, this weighted pencil is an OT favorite and is great for reducing hand fatigue and helping writing clarity. Use it to help those who grip their pencils too tightly or suffer from shaky hands.

This product is specially designed with a comfortable, built in grip to help students hold it properly. The grip works for both left and right handed writers. 4.0 oz. of weight is balanced across the hand, further reducing muscle fatigue.

You donít have to worry about the frustration of the lead constantly breaking with this pencil. It uses a 2mm size lead that will not break easily while writing. Both the grip and pencil are designed by Dr. Lois Provda, an educational therapist with over 20 years of University research and clinical experience. This set includes an eraser and six lead refills.

Ordered for a 66yo male with right hand tremor.The weighted pencil did somewhat help in reducing the hand tremor, however the finger gripper is too far up away from the tip that reduces controlled movement for effective smooth writing. This is a high quality expensive pencil so it seems like the company should have tested it to make the metal part under the finger gripper adjustable to make it more usable. Some more weight may also help decrease the tremor more.
