Ishy Sail Pencil Grip
This is a new pencil grip design that gives a natural curve to the fingers to block hyperextension. Use it in a tripod grasp to give a natural curve to the thumb while writing. It has a bulb design toward the palm to help those with weak muscles get a good grasp on the pencil.
It can also be held between the index and middle finger in a modified grasp. This gives a comfortable and natural curve in those fingers, and helps with joint instability and arthritis.
The larger size has a larger curve. The small size is good for elementary school age. And the large is good for bigger kids and adults. The mini size is good for much smaller hands and those that do not need as much bulk in the grip.
The color will be a random color of green, yellow, blue, or red, and there will be variations in the colors due to small batch color mixing. The surface is bumpy and squishy silicone. Imperfections are part of the molding process that is used, and is part of the charm of the grip.
Made of 100% silicone. safe and non-toxic. Items may take a week to ship.
Works for both left and right hand.
Here is a very weak hand using the small Ishy grip. This is a first grader.
I have a kiddo in my classroom that still grabbed her pencil like a fist and write that way (not well). I ordered the ishy sail pen and had her start using it. Her grip is better but it’s a work in progress. It takes some time to reteach her brain how to hold her pencil correctly and I believe this new ishy pencil grip will do the trick.
I really like these pencil grips and have used them with students for a few years. Unfortunately this time the order took about a month to receive which was difficult as I needed it for a child in my class. In addition when I received the order one of the grips is not useable-the hole was placed off center.
They are amazing. Kids love using them and they really make a difference. I was able to get the school to buy them because they work so well.
Was too large for my middle school student so I am ordering the small vs. the large one. Wish I had ordered both to save on shipping as they are costly for a grip.
I have a couple of students who really like these grippers. I bought more to be able to give them one to use in their classroom.
