This review is from: Ergonomic Ring-Pen
Used for individual who is suffering from Carpel Tunnel symptoms. It is a God send she tells me because there is no need to grip the pen to be able to write. In fact, she loves it so much, I have just ordered more for the office for people who have previously suffered from Carpel Tunnel and don't want it to return

Great help when writing
By SPD on 31 Mar 2014
This arrived in good time. There are three different sizes to allow for size of fingers. Comfortable to use and puts less pressure on the small bones of the finger to improve writing for those with Arthritis or other conditions affecting the hands and fingers. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who struggles to write due to pain and discomfort when holding a pen or similar.

This has made writing a much easier task for my aunt who has arthritis as it does not require to much of a grip to perform. Thanks.

By Rhoda -

Far better than the Y pen for writing with little pressure on thumb. Design would be improved if the 'nib' was at say 45 degree angle to also allow the middle finger to be used which by passes the need to use thumb altogether

By Iris Danks -

Prompt delivery. Feels very comfortable when holding and writing. Seems to help ease strain from tendons when writing. Alittle pricy but well worth it plus you get a free spare ink. Would buy from this company again.

Really useful as demonstration for people who want to try different pens. You need big hands to use this one and have good control



5.0 out of 5 stars It is a keeper!, September 14, 2014
By Max (Orange, CA USA) -

This pen really works! I have carpel tunnel syndrome so my hand can cramp up if I spend hours writing flash cards for my class I am taking. When my hand becomes painful I can switch over to this pen and I do not have all that pain. The quality of the pen is decent, too. I am really glad I made this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best, June 1, 2014
By Aurora K. Pajeau (Rocky Mount) -

I love this pen. I use it all day at work and wish I had one for my car, everywhere in my house, etc. It is so easy to write with. Pain free!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easier Writing, May 9, 2014
By Harry -

I use it when the arthritis in my hand is really "acting up". It takes a few minutes of practice time to get used to but after that it really makes it easier to write during the periods when the arthritis is so painful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Functions well as advertised, May 7, 2014
By Wandotraveler (Mt Pleasant SC) -

The pen was received on time, but at first did not write! However, an email to the company quickly solved the problem. The pen comes with a wax coating on the writing ball and needs to be removed simply with hot water. Now works fine. Very prompt and helpful CS. My suggestion is that they include this little tidbit on the packaging.

The pen is perfect for what I need it for its smooth and easy to use its a little more than I wanted to spend but it comes with replacement ink perfect

Just what he needed., August 24, 2013
By Shirley Chadwick (Mineola, TX, US) -

The therapist suggested I buy this Ring pen to help my husband, who has had a stroke, and has limited use of his right hand. By working on his writing every day, he can now sign his name legibly..

5.0 out of 5 stars a stylish stylus, June 26, 2013
By Alicia Tracy (Pittsburgh, PA USA) -

Cap is kinda weak, but the entire pen itself is quite good. My first tip writes a bit sketchy, but I switched it with a replacement, which does better. Probably sat for a little while. Pen itself is very, very comfortable, as well as quite professional in appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars My dad loved this product, February 10, 2013
By Rosalind M. Irvine "Lextownroz" (Lexington, KY) -

My dad has ms and this pen allowed him to control his writing much better. He was thrilled with this and we will purchase again.

I recently had a severe injury to my right hand and could not write with a ordinary writing pen. My therapist recommended the finger pen. I ordered it, it arrived quickly and I was excited to be able to write again. Love the pen.Thanks.

I have bought this for my mom.. Don't know how it will be useful to her, I tried it by myself and my handwriting was different. For persons who have shivering, I think this might be helpful as you no need to hold this...

très bons produit après une petite période d'adaptation je recommanderai

D. Suzanne - 28/05/2014

Il faut un temps d'adaptation pour être plus performant mais toutefois il apporte plus de lisibilité dans l'écriture d'une main très tremblante. Article que je recommande.

(5 STARS) Doch auch für Linkshänder!, 28. September 2014

Von I. Richter "Leseratte" (München) -
Rezension bezieht sich auf: RinG-Pen Ultra (Medium)

Ich habe eine Arthrose im linken Zeigefinger und bin deshalb auf Stifte wie den Ring Pen angewiesen. Nur mit solchen Spezialkugelschreibern kann ich schmerzfrei und über weite Strecken schreiben. Mit herkömmlichen Stiften geht das nämlich nicht mehr.

Zufälligerweise stieß ich vor ca. 14 Tagen im Internet auf den Ring Pen Ultra und bestellte diese Schreibhilfe sofort. Ich hatte allerdings nicht bedacht, dass dieses Teil für den rechtshändigen Gebrauch konstruiert ist. In den folgenden Tagen klickte ich mir immer wieder Fotos an und überlegte mir, ob es nicht doch eine Möglichkeit für den linkshändigen Gebrauch gäbe. Als vor einigen Tagen das Paket per Post eintraf, probierte ich den Ring Pen Ultra sofort aus. Ich untersuchte diese Schreibhilfe sehr genau und bin zu folgendem Schluss gekommen:

Der Ring Pen Ultra ist - entgegen anders lautenden Beschreibungen - doch für den linkshändigen Gebrauch geeignet. Zuerst wird der Stift wie für den rechtshändigen Gebrauch an die Schreibhilfe geklemmt. Dann schiebt man den linken Zeigefinger durch den Ring in die dafür vorgesehene Mulde und dreht den Ultra Grip in eine senkrechte Position. Der Stift liegt nun zwischen dem Zeige- und dem Ringfinger. Dabei wird auch noch eine Vertiefung sichtbar, in der ich den Daumen lege. So ist der Stift theoretisch jetzt schreibbereit.

Allerdings ist nicht jeder Stift in dieser linkshändigen Schreibposition gleich gut geeignet. Am besten finde ich die Verbindung mit dem Pelikan Inky (schreibt sehr weich und sofort an). Bei den Kugelschreibern eignen sich die ganz schlanken, wie z. B. der BIC Cristal, ein Einwegkugelschreiber, oder solche, die man mit der Schneider Office oder der Schneider 75 Miene nachfüllen kann. Andere Kugelschreiber, welche mit einer Miene im Parkerformat ausgestattet sind, eignen sich nicht so gut. Desgleichen die Schneider Slider. Da dieser Ring Pen Ultra die mittlere Größe ist, traue ich mich nicht so sehr, ihn mit einem Füllhalter zu bestücken. Selbst mein schlankster Füller ist für diese Schreibhilfe zu dick. Aber dafür klemm ich mir Gabel oder Löffel rein und hier funktioniert der Ultra Grip großartig.

Trotzdem es für den linkshändigen Gebrauch Einschränkungen gibt, vergebe ich fünf Sterne. Denn ich kann damit ebenso absolut schmerzfrei schreiben!


Handwriting Helpers!

Many of us have children who struggle with handwriting. While many have tried different methods, fun materials, lots of encouragement etc, often the problem is low muscle tone in the hands and pain when handwriting.

One thing we have done lots of, is therapy. We spent years (5+) having Occupational Therapy (OT) and concentrated on fine motor skills, specifically strengthening the hand muscles for handwriting. These days our OT is for both gross motor and fine motor, and helps with my son's Joint Hypermobility Syndrome and his super low tone. Point is, we've done the hard yards, we've done all the recommended exercises and home therapy programs too. We've tried every finger grip and type of pencil we could find and we got to a point where my son could write, and write neatly (when he put his mind to it) but still could not write a lot and not fast. It still hurts him. Given his condition it probably always will. I doubt he will become a Calligraphy artist LOL.

Now I admit, you get sick of looking for new options and searching online. So I haven't done it in quite a while. But I found two things last month that have been working really well for us and I wanted to share.

First is the RinG-Pen Ultra. I bought it from My Diffability Australia. This has been my son's preferred option for handwriting. All other pencil grips still required him to put the pressure on the pencil to hold it so no matter how soft the grip was, how bulky it was etc, he still had to hold his fingers there using his muscles and that got painful. The Ring-Pen Ultra is a little different. It holds the pencil or pen and you put it on your finger like a ring and lay the finger in place. The ring grip holds the pencil in place, not the muscles of the finger. My son has said he doesn't have to grip as hard and can rest his fingers more. My son (like me) is ambidextrous and we have been able to use it on both hands with no trouble. Really loving it!

What's fantastic about this little gadget, is that you can also use it for cutlery and things like paintbrushes. My boy uses the small size (yellow) while I use the medium (white) and large (black) sizes. Yes I bought all three so he has them as he grows.
