Yoropen Makes Writing Easier
Yoropen takes the strain out of writing for people with arthritis and those who are left-handed
The Yoropen does everything it says it does on the packaging. The first thing I noticed about the pen, as a left-hander, was how much easier it was to keep my hand off the page and away from the writing.
No more smeared pages!
Then, after using it for a while, I noticed the second thing. I was not getting the problems with pains in my hand from holding the pen. I have arthritis in my hands and holding a pen for any length of time is normally quite uncomfortable for me.
No more painful, cramping hands and fingers!
I first saw the Yoropen in 2008 while at a seminar for parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. When I later came across these same pens in the shop in a small size for little hands I decided to buy two for my son. Then I tried a full-size pen for myself. I was convinced, and I think you will be as well.

'The Yoropen does what it claims - by reducing strain, improving the field of vision, encouraging correct hold and assisting left-handers'.

What is a Yoropen?
And why does it have such a funny shape?
The Yoropen was invented in Taiwan by Mr Bao Shen Liu.
Mr Lui realised after spending time working with angles that if he could change the angle at which a pen meets the paper, it could be made easier to use.
After developing several prototypes, refining the angle and other details each time, he finally came up with a writing instrument which reduces strain and makes handwriting easier.
The offset nib ensures pressure is directed directly onto the pen tip. The holding position prevents poor grip and awkward writing positions.

Yoropens and Arthritis
Take the pain out of writing
I have arthritis in my hands. This can make something as simple as writing very difficult for me because if I have to hold a pen and write for more than a few minutes my fingers cramp and become sore.
I'm also left-handed, which brings in a whole other slew of problems what with naturally trying to hold the pen at an awkward upside-down angle.
The Yoropen solves both of these problems!
Because of the way this pen is designed, when I am writing I am able to hold my hand with my wrist straight, no more strain from holding my wrist in a bent position.
My fingers are able to grip the pen in an easier position, no more cramped fingers.
And, because the designs allows me to write without dragging my hand along the paper, no more smeared words.

Yoropen is different
'The Yoropen's innovatively designed barrel allows a ballpoint to work at a comfortable angle. As well as the general writer of any age, the Yoropen might be of special use to those with real writing problems.'
~ Dr Rosemary Sassoon - Author of over thirty handwriting books
