Doodle Bug

Jump to: navigation, search


The Doodle Bug Writing Aid is a small, inexpensive device that is simple to use to help those with hand injuries, congenital malformations, or arthritis hold a pen or pencil in order to write independently.

Hand deformities occur in approximately 1 percent of live births (1). Not all of these hand anomalies preclude handwriting and many are mitigated by surgery, but for a variety of reasons, a surgical remedy is not always possible. There are many pencil grips and writing aids on the market; however, nearly all of these rely on the ability of the user to grasp them. Some of the congenital hand deformities preclude that as they involve fusion or absence of fingers.
