The design of the EzGrip ResQ Gel Ergonomic Pen allows writing to be comfortable and effortless. Using the ergonomic EzGrip® ResQ Gel Pen is a unique experience - not only for its writing abilities - described as "...floating on paper," but having the distinction as a pen that cradles and conforms to your extended finger and tip. Only the slightest touch of that one first finger tip is needed to provide downward writing pressure. Like touching a computer key - but lighter. The other fingers can just "go along for the ride." It's not the usual everyday writing experience, but one more comfortable and advanced. The gel ink is closest to fountain pen ink or roller ball in it's writing characteristics. It flows smoothly, and dries quickly. By using the EzGrip ResQ Gel Pen, it's possible to never again get writer's cramp - never again contemplate the onset of any "Itis" - Tendonitis, Arthritis... or repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI's) such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In practical terms it also means that even having those conditions will not matter. Their mechanisms or weaknesses will not enter into the writing process. The EzGrip pen is often called the "miracle pen" for persons with arthritis, tendonitis, other hand problems or cramping. It neutralizes hand difficulties immediately. Here's How: Using the EzGrip ergonomic pen as described, the built-in mechanisms within our hands and arms that create those weaknesses are actually disconnected or bypassed. The patented EzGrip enables the individual to switch positions, relying on other fingers. Many of us write in personal ways - with different finger holds. The EzGrip allows users to switch fingers at any time to adapt to their individual style of writing. More specifically, the side of the thumb can be used for downward writing pressure - even the middle finger knuckle. There is no incorrect way to hold and use an EzGrip. It's your choice. And it's a choice that can save you pain and discomfort. Uses Parker style refills. EzGrip ResQ Gel Ergonomic Pen Specifications: Color: Silver w/Navy Grip, soft rubber. Ink: Black.
