Improve Writing Stability-While Easing Pain

Maddak Inc. introduced the RinG-Pen, a writing instrument that has been favorably reviewed by the Arthritis Foundation. This ergonomically-designed instrument takes much of the shaking and muscle pain out of handling a pen. It will even solve the problem of hand tremors.

The RinG-Pen reduces stress on the fingers and wrists to increase writing stability. One finger through the ring creates a solid grip and natural pressure on the barrel of the pen. The pen is further stabilized with the other two fingers holding the barrel on each side. The smoothly serrated barrel assists positioning and stabilizing the fingers in the most comfortable individual writing position. There is no pressure on the fingers or wrist and therefore, less pain. This pen can also be positioned on the toe.

The RinG-Pen is made of lightweight, durable plastic with a noncorrosive metal tip and removable pen tip cover with pocket tab. The pen includes two refill. Refill cartridges are available for reorder in packages of two each.

Maddak's products are available through local medicai or hospital supply, pharmacy, or home care retail centers, or by contacting Maddak directly. For additional information, contact Maddak, Inc., 6 Industrial Road, Pequannock, NJ 07440-1993, or call (201) 628-7600, ext. 9, or fax (201) 305-0841.
