Inventors Develop Ergonomic Pencil for Those with Limited Mobility (SDB-1070)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, is submitting this client’s idea, Pappy 1, in the hopes of a good faith review.

"As LR educators, we work with children with special needs," said one of two inventors from Aguanga, Calif. "One of the hardest things for them to learn is how to hold a pencil properly. To address this problem, we developed a pencil that ensures that you hold it the right way."

They developed the PAPPY 1 to make it easier for individuals with disabilities to write and draw. The design ensures that the user grips it properly. It thereby eliminates the frustration associated with learning how to hold a pencil the right way. The pencil will not roll off tables, desks or other flat surfaces. All of this offers added peace of mind. Furthermore, the writing implement is producible in a variety of colors.

The original design was submitted to the San Diego office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 16-SDB-1070, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at -
