Introduced in 1995, Dr. Grip was the first truly ergonomic writing instrument. In 2012, Dr. Grip Pure White and Full Black launched, adding sleek, stylish design to the Dr. Grip line. Dr. Grip is your prescription for writing comfort – featuring a unique balanced design, a cushioned grip that alleviates writing fatigue, and a smooth ink formula for an exceptional writing experience. In a recent study, conducted by Georgia Tech, Dr. Grip Center of Gravity (COG) was proven to be 2X more comfortable than traditional Ballpoint pens, and Dr. Grip is the only pen commended by the Arthritis Foundation for Ease-of-Use. Dr. Grip pens are retractable and refillable.
