How UGLee Pen Can Help Alleviate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The Carpal Tunnel

The Carpal Tunnel

How can a pen help alleviate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)? First we need to define what CTS is to better understand how it works. Then it will be clear why UGLee Pen can help.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The carpal tunnel is a tight space in which many tendons and nerves are located. The tendons move the fingers. The nerves supply the hand. When the tendons are put under a lot of tension (with writing or typing, etc…) the tendons actually “saw” away at the tissues that define the tunnel. The tissues and tendons are injured and get inflamed and swollen. This swelling puts pressure on the tendons themselves and nerves that are located in the carpal tunnel. Pressure on nerves is felt as pain (everyone knows what this feels like, just try hitting your “funnybone” it takes very little to cause a painful sensation when you directly involve a nerve). This whole process is known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

How Does UGLee Pen Alleviate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
The UGLee Pen, with its unique shape and high friction material, vastly decreases the tension necessary to write. Less tension on the tendons means less “sawing” (think of taking a string and trying to cut with it. If you don’t draw it tight you won’t be able to cut with it) on the surrounding tissues and of course less trauma (damage) to the tendons themselves. This leads to less inflammation, less swelling, less pressure on the nerves. As a result, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome goes away.
