Product Description

Why Choose The HeavyWeight Pencil?

The HeavyWeight Pencil is a therapeutic product designed to help manage and overcome hand health issues. It can improve handwriting legibility by reducing tremors, reducing fatigue, and increasing muscle strength. The HeavyWeight Pencil combines two unique, beneficial features – added weight and a patented ergonomic grip. The weight of the pencil (4.0 ounces/.25 pounds/133 grams) encourages support from larger muscles in the arm, and reduces the burden on smaller, more sensitive hand muscles. The weight helps the pencil effortlessly rest in the hand, and means there’s no need to provide downward pressure for it to write. Includes graphite refills.

Balanced weight makes it easy to hold and control.

Helping Adults With Daily Living

Tremors, Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a general lack of strength, and other hand heath issues effect millions of adults. These can make the many daily activities that involve handwriting difficult and painful. The HeavyWeight Pencil strengthens hands and promotes steadier, more legible handwriting. As the weight encourages the use of larger muscles, it eases stress on the fingers, wrist, and hands. This reduces the effects of hand health issues on daily living and quality of life.

Helping Children Develop Handwriting Skills

Children need to develop fine motor skills and adequate hand strength before they can improve their handwriting. The added weight of the HeavyWeight Pencil addresses both issues. And, the unique grip is recommended by occupational therapists to help children learn to write.

The Weight

The Heavyweight Pencil weighs approximately 4.0 ounces. This is equal to a stack of 20 quarters, or five AA batteries. The weight is evenly distributed throughout the pencil so it is easily balanced and controlled. Weighted products like the HeavyWeight Pencil are widely recommended by occupational therapists for managing the challenges associated with hand health disorders.

The Unique Grip

The grip on the HeavyWeight Pencil is called The Pencil Grip. It was designed by a doctor for comfort and control. The unique shape of The Pencil Grip gently positions fingers in the proper, ergonomic position for gripping. This proper positioning reduces stress on the fingers, reduces fatigue, and helps the hand relax as it writes. To use, Righties and Lefties simply place their thumb on the “R” or the “L” printed on the grip. The other fingers will naturally fall into place with the middle finger on the underside of the grip.

Weighs about the same as five AA batteries.
