I have really bad carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands from a lifetime of typing and overusing my wrists and hands (at least I think it's carpal tunnel. It could be something else, I guess.)
Last night in Walmart, my husband and I ran across a cool new pen. It's ergonomically designed to reduce the stress on your fingers, hand, and wrist. It's called PenAgain. I bought one and have been using it this morning, and it's so neat! We paid just $3.96 for it, and it comes with two ink refills.
This would make a great gift or stocking stuffer for folks with carpal tunnel, arthritis, or other hand/wrist problems.
