For added input to the hand during handwriting tasks|||ARK's Weighted Pencil is an innovative writing tool recommended for individuals with sensory integration issues and/or poor fine motor control. The weight and textured surface of the pencil provide increased sensory input and proprioceptive feedback to the hand while writing. These sensations may increase focus, normalize writing speed, increase hand strength and dexterity, and/or decrease the grip force used to hold a pen/pencil.
The Weighted Pencil comes with 1 aluminum handpiece, 1 Weighted Tip, 1 Pencil Adapter Tip, and 6 golf pencils. When assembled, the pencil measures approximately 5 inches in length and is easy for small hands to manage. Alternatively, you can choose a set of Pen Tips from the pull-down menu (instead of the Pencil Tip). All other accessories (like the Butter Grip) sold separately.
Please note: this non-vibratory handle is compatible with all of the tip options for the Z-Vibe®. However, the non-vibratory handle is too short to accommodate the vibratory components, and therefore can NOT be made to vibrate.
MADE in the USA. The Bite-n-Chew Tips (optional add-on) are medical grade, FDA compliant, and free from lead, phthalates, PVC, BPA, or latex.
Caution: this kit contains small parts. Recommended only for ages 3 and up under adult supervision.
