Improve focus & awareness with sensory input to the hand|||ARK's Weighted Pencil is an innovative writing tool recommended for individuals with sensory integration issues and/or poor fine motor control. Its weight, textured surface, and vibration provide increased sensory input and proprioceptive feedback to the hand while writing. Vibration is felt in the hand, but does not affect the actual writing! These sensations can help 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 vibratory handpiece, 1 Weighted Tip, 1 Pencil Adapter Tip, and 6 golf pencils. When assembled, the pencil measures approximately 7 inches in length and under 1/2 inch in diameter and weighs approximately 2 ounces. Alternatively, you can choose a Pen Tip (black ink) from the pull-down menu (instead of the Pencil Tip).
Please note: it comes with a special Vibe Battery not sold in stores. We recommend buying a spare from the pull down menu above. This is the same handle used for the Z-Vibe®, and so it is compatible with all of the tips for the Z-Vibe® (sold separately).
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: contains small parts (including a battery) that may pose a choking hazard: direct adult supervision required at all times. Not for children under 3 years.
