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 6 refills of 2.0mm lead.
