And yes, all stemming from the pencils that they make us use in grade school.
Typically, the reason for holding the pen hard is to minimize slippage of the writing instrument. You subconsciously do this by compressing the soft tissues of your fingers against the hard pen/pencil, pushing against bone to get the best transfer of writing movements.
This is great for hand-eye correlation, but torture to the actual tissues being compressed, not to mention the muscles doing the work of compressing.
I’ve made the UGLee Pen so that the shape of the grip itself does the bone-to-pen transfer, and the material does the gripping onto the soft tissues.
Minimal grip needed.
The brain will always call for minimal effort. Over the course of about a week, most will start to notice that they have been subconsciously gripping with a lot less force.
If you go back to a regular pen, you will just about drop it when you write, because of the changed perception of what grip tension is needed.
This is why the UGLee Pen is such a great ergonomic pen.
The stress and pain that many experience when writing with a “regular” pen, is gone when you use the UGLee Pen!
