The Triangular Advantage

The triangular shape helps students to relax. It increases finger contact with the pen/pencil surface to improve control without squeezing. The drawings below show how it works.

The triangular advantage in a wooden pencil...

Introducing the "Finger Fitter"

A new and improved thick triangualr pencil with and without eraser!

The three sides created by a triangular shape provide wider surfaces for pointer finger, thumb and middle finger. The finger surfaces are also presented at better angles for hand structure. The result is better feel and therefore more relaxation. If your student is pinching and squeezing with multiple finger involvement, select this thicker pencil. A thicker barrel separates the small muscles and allows better gross involvement. It means that the child is able to use the muscle groups that we want to train for fluent writing later on.

The Peterson Position Pen

Good position is important when writing with a ball point.  A poor angle causes skipping and leads to those strange balls of inky fuzz that build up around the tip.  It makes sense to provide opportunity for students in grades 4, 5 and 6 to practice writing with a pen.  Confidence and control of the writing movement improves with practice.  The ball rolling on the page presents a new challenge.  Writing with a pencil is like running down the hall in a pair of sneakers.  A ball point pen handles more like a pair of roller blades.  We provide an attractive pen with unique position reminders on the round barrel.  Help your students gain the confidence and good position skills they need to improve fluency.

Heavy Weight Pen and Pencil

- Helps Build Hand Strength- Balanced to Reduce Fatigue -

The Heavy Weights are built to address muscle strength and instability issues. The weight of the pen or pencil coupled with the built-in gripper, helps when tremors make handwriting control difficult or when weakness or developmental issues create a need to build strength. The unit weighs a bit more than 4 ounces. That doesn't seem like much until you pick it up. Each tool is a weighted ergonomic writing instrument designed to help people with hand health issues.

The pen comes with black ink and uses a standard Schmidt Parker refill. The pencil comes with a tube of nine 2.0 MM lead refills.

Each Pen or Pencil $25

To order by phone, toll free: 1-800-541-6328. Office Hours, 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM, Eastern time.
