This simple device is made up of a large loop made of soft elastic (like a hair scrunchy) that goes over the wrist, a small loop that goes around the pencil or pen and a cord with a charm on the end that is held in the palm of the hand. These work together to encourage a perfect grip and writing style without even trying! Click the image to the right for full details and to order.
We invited a friend's left-handed daughter round to try out the Handi Writer as were not sure if it was just a gimmick. She started with a fairly bad writing style, holding the pencil in a “fist” grip and very vertical so she could not see what she was writing and smudged her work straight away.
The first time she tried the Handi Writer, she immediately had a perfect writing position – her writing was hugely improved and she felt a lot more comfortable and it would be very difficult for her to smudge her work. Both her and her mother said “Wow”, and so did we! This is definitely not a gimmick – it works like magic.
We have produced a short video to show the Handi Writer in action so you can see how it works.
