Ring pens are ideal for someone elderly

These Ergonomic Ring-Pens are a wonderful idea for anyone who finds it difficult to hold a conventional pen due to arthritis or weakened fingers. Ring pens are also ideal for anyone recovering from hand surgery or for someone who suffers from carpel tunnel syndrome. 

They work by slipping them over the middle or index finger.Whilst researching the Ergonomic Ring-Pen I came across the Ring pen ultra which can hold any pen of choice and even be used to hold cutlery.

  1. Hello Kath,

    Thank you for contacting me. I am afraid there is little information about the ring pen holders for cutlery and I think it would be a case of trial and error.If you buy from an online seller who will accept returns then you won’t waste money if your Father in Law found he couldn’t use them. I am sorry to not be of more use to you.

  2. Hi Caron,
    I was hoping you could perhaps tell me if there is anymore info on the Ring pen ultra for use with cutlery.
    I think my father-inlaw could really find these helpful.
    Many thanks
