Convenient and Essential Tool

Pros:
Lightweight. Adaptable.
Cons:
Need help tweak. Pliers required to change.
Best Uses:
Writing. Typing. Painting.
Describe Yourself:
Paralyzed. No hand dexterity. C5/6 Quadriplegic.

I actually use my writers constantly. I have one for my stylus for electronic devices and another for my pen (which has an oversized barrel). They are useful for typing most of all. I use them for writing and painting and drawing also. Try one for the left and another for the right hand for quicker typing (if you have the balance). You need someone with pliers and a steady hand to set it up to hold your utensil (pen, pencil, stylus, etc.) When I was first recovering, I used the Writer 2 with a wrist splint and straps for stability because I only have wrist extension. I highly recommend either unit.

Odd hand position Verified Purchaser

Pros:
Lightweight.
Cons:
Uncomfortable.
Describe Yourself:
Caregiver.

Although this product may be excellent for someone who does not have much muscle control in their hand, it does not promote the proper pencil position and grip that are preferred by OTs for handwriting.

Been a life saver for fifteen years Verified Reviewer

Pros:
Adjustable. Adjustable. Adjustable. Adjustable. Adjustable.

I've been using Wanchick products since I broke my neck in '94. When I was first injured I relied on the writer with wrist splint. It can be unwieldy with its long arm and straps. So I went to this little guy after college. Because it doesn't have wrist support, I had to get used to writing again. It isn't the prettiest, but who writes that much anymore? As a typing aide this writer shines. I'm on my iPad using a stylus as I post this review. Speeds my typing greatly. I keep another writer on hand with a mechanical pencil turned around so the eraser is my typing end. When I do write, I just slide the pencil out and slide a pen in. The pencils and pens should be the same diameter. Avoid those with big rubber grips. When I drop it or run it over, I ask someone to bend my writer back in shape. Its metal body is fairly easy to bend as needed.
