Pacific Writing Instruments has tackled a subject that could affect students everywhere. The Escondido based company sat down and reevaluated the design of traditional writing utensils and developed a new model that they call the Penagain.

The Penagain is designed to eliminate the hand tension associated with penmanship. If the resulting product actually works, the design could save millions of writers from basilar arthritis later in life.

I’m going to try to get my hand on one of these (oh I’m so clever) and I’ll let you all know how it turns out. Hopefully it’s more effective than the Pendulum from Papermate.
