UGLee Pen: An Ergonomic Pen Review & Giveaway


Ever notice your knuckles turn white when you're writing? Do you get "writer's cramp"? Ever thought it had something to do with the pen you're using? Of course not because it's just a pen, right? Wrong.

Introducing the UGLee Pen (Ultimate Grip Pen by Dr. James Lee, hence the name).

UGLee Pens because there's more than one in the picture...

"Dr. Lee received his BS in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University and his MD from Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Lee has done his share of writing throughout his academic and professional life. All of the writing required by medical school and physician training took its toll. After trying just about every pen and failing to find a truly comfortable one, Dr. Lee was determined to create his own. Known to even fire his own clay pens, Dr. Lee has experimented with just about every combination of shape, texture, material, and ink mixtures in search of the optimum combination for the 'Perfect Pen.' "


This ergonomic pen has a full size grip that seems to grip to you instead. (Ergonomics is the applied science to maximize productivity by minimizing operator discomfort.) I'll admit that at first it felt a bit awkward to use the UGLee Pen, but it's a lot thicker than the average pen. Mostly due to the grip, which has precisely placed indents for a more comfortable hold. And I found that when you don't have to "death grip" a pen, it definitely helps ease the minor (to sometime major) discomforts you can get with writing.
