Writer's Cramp- Dystonia Foundation
Writer's Cramp- Dystonia CLINICAL STUDY - Alternate Pen Grip
This grip technique may be of great value for those with a Focal Dystonia.
What it says: In extreme cases of cramping, place the writing instrument between the first and second fingers. The normal pressure of the finger sides will hold it in place. Writing in this way can help avoid triggering the cramping. The EzGrip design makes it even more comfortable and controllable to write in this way.
