Any tips on how to improve my handwriting / grip

Postby dc10 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 1:17 pm

im studying for an exam so am writing a lot of notes, but after a few minutes of writing my grip weakens so handwriting deteriorates

as i haven't noticed this weakening grip before, i guess its down to progression/deterioration,

So i was wondering if other MS'ers have difficults writing neatly or legibly for extended periods of time?

if you have difficulty writing neatly are there any aids or tips that help you

- in the morning my handwriting is best but gets worse fairly quick,
the best way to describe it is having difficulty holding the pen firmly gripped, which you need to write neatly i think
I can hold/squeeze the hand very firm/hard when in my palm but its hard to when using my fingers to grip the pen

i have seen these special pens but not sure which is best, any opinions?: ... &top=11108

Check out the link below. These hand excercisers have worked wonders for me (I have no financial interest).
