Writing Aids for Stroke Survivors help increase independence.

Writing Aids

A stroke is often caused by blocked blood vessels splitting open and causing bleeding in the brain, which may lead to brain damage. Some stroke survivors suffer partial paralysis, affecting their ability to use their hand and arm, causing limitations to daily, necessary tasks such as typing and writing. For stroke survivors, writing is often difficult due to problems with muscle control for controlling writing instruments.

Some stroke survivors may find a heavier, weighted pen may help them grip and hold more easily. Weights can be added or removed to increase stability of the writing instrument and help control writing. Other pens are designed for holding in a different way to provide increased stabilization for writing. For stroke survivors with reduced grip strength, making the barrel of the pen larger may be helpful. CaregiverProducts.com provides a variety of writing tools for people rehabilitating from a stroke.
