The Pencil Grip is the original ergonomic writing aid. Writing becomes easy and natural. The Pencil Grip improves handwriting, helps to give more control, and reduces hand fatigue. Its unique, patented design gently encourages the fingers and hand to rest in the proper position for gripping – The Tripod Grip. Unlike other pencil grips, The Pencil Grip feels natural because of its ergonomic design and soft, flexible, latex-free material.
The Pencil Grip was designed by a doctor and is widely used in classrooms, at home, and in therapeutic settings. The unique shape is designed to be “one size fits all” to help the hands of kids and adults, and work for both righties and lefties. The Pencil Grip can be used as a training tool, and then permanently for added comfort. The Pencil Grip fits on pencils, primary pencils, pens, crayons, markers, paint brushes, etc., so its benefits can be widely enjoyed.
Slide the wider end of the grip on first. Righties and Lefties simply place their thumb on the “R” or the “L” printed on the grip. Fingers will naturally fall into place with the middle finger on the underside of the grip. The images on the left show proper positioning.
A comfortable hand has more control and shows improved handwriting. The Pencil Grip guides the hand into an ergonomic position. It relieves hand pain, reduces fatigue, and improves comfort. Consistent use teaches and reinforces the proper grip, and stops common problems like fist grips, thumb-wrapping, and white-knuckling. Parents, teachers, and occupational therapists widely recommend using The Pencil Grip.
The Pencil Grip is widely used by the millions of Americans diagnosed with hand health issues like Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tremors, and a general lack of strength. The Arthritis Foundation recognized The Pencil Grip for ‘helping to improve the quality of life of the millions of Americans with arthritis. ’ The Pencil Grip received this commendation because it is easy and comfortable to hold.
Invented in 1992 by Dr. Lois Provda, a prominent educational therapist, The Pencil Grip became a family endeavor. Two decades later, the company is still run by the Provdas. The family is incredibly grateful to the millions of parents, teachers, and therapists who have put their trust in their products.
