As children learn to write, they may have their own way of gripping the pencil that may not be comfortable or efficient in the long run. The Grotto Grip was designed and tested by pediatric occupational therapists who specialize in handwriting. This patented, ergonomic pencil grip immediately decreases hand fatigue and pencil pressure. With consistent use, it could increase writing endurance and pencil control as you train the hand muscles to properly hold a writing utensil.
Many leading pencil grips may be designed to feel comfortable, but they support the hand at the finger joints encouraging whole arm and hand movements, and a static grasp pattern rather than the use of dynamic finger moments, which lead to more precision and increased writing speed. Activate the muscles in the palm of the hand to allow for dynamic finger moments.
Grips that are too soft, lack finger guard, or place fingers too far apart may reinforce improper grasp habits. The unique design of the Grotto Grip places the hand and fingers in a position which sends the support to the palm of the hand and leads the user to hold the wrist in an extended position.
