Ergonomics is the science of ensuring that the work space works optimally to the usage of the human body. This is important because it lessens the risk of injury and makes the work space as comfortable as possible. If you want to create a user friendly work space for writing, follow these tips.
- If you need to write a lot in one day, remember to take frequent breaks. Writing continuously can cause a lot of strain to the hands.
- Hold the pen lightly. The less weight you have to exert to write, the less discomfort you will experience.
- Choose a pen with a larger barrel. That will help distribute the weight across more of your hand, instead of on one spot that may cause pain.
- Find a pen with a barrel that has some texture and grip to it. Pens with a smooth and slippery barrel require more force to use.
- Use a pen that contains a smooth ink so it glides across the paper to reduce friction.
- Keep your wrist in as neutral position as you write. Your hand should glide across the writing surface with most of your movement coming from the shoulder.
- Change your seating posture to ensure you are not keeping your body static and staying in one position for any length of time.
The best tip as have is to use an ergonomic pen, like my physician designed UGLee Pen. It has a wider barrel, is lightweight, and uses the smoothest ink making it the most comfortable pen available on the market today. It’s perfectly engineered for ergonomic use for anyone who writes. And, it’s so comfortable, you will never want to use another pen again – guaranteed!
