Ring Pen and Ring Pen Grip

Many individuals with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more, often experience handwriting difficulties.  Traditional pens and pencils lack the ergonomic design which helps reduce fatigue and pain.  There are two products designed to benefit individuals with handwriting challenges: Ring Pen and Ring Pen Grip.

Ring Pen

The Original Ring Pen is noted to be “the next generation of ergonomic writing tools.”  It is a unique writing pen that helps individuals with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress syndrome, as well as those who lack fine motor skills.

To begin writing with the Ring Pen, simply slide your finger through the ring of the pen and begin writing!  The weight of your index finger will provide the perfect amount of pressure to write; the balanced weight and hand position takes the discomfort out of writing.
