First introduced in 1995, Pilot's Dr. Grip was the first effectively designed ergonomic writing instrument. The newest iteration in this pioneering line of pens is the Pilot Dr. Grip Center Of Gravity (COG) Retractable Ball Point Pen. Uniquely featuring a new perfect weight distribution around its gripping axis, this Dr. Grip creates a more comfortable, balanced writing experience. Pilot's new longer-lasting Turbo Charged Ball Point Ink Formula redefines smooth writing.
The Dr. Grip Center Of Gravity is noted to be Arthritis-friendly. The entire Dr. Grip pen lineup has earned the Ease-of-Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation. In fact, "in a three-month study conducted by the Georgia Tech Research Institute, Dr. Grip Center of Gravity (COG) surpassed key competitors in overall comfort ratings for users both with and without arthritis. Dr. Grip COG was proven to be almost two times more comfortable than key competitor brands."
Fashionable as well as functional, Dr. Grip pens have an attractive design and a premium metal clip. Sensibly, they are not disposable, but eco-friendly refillable.
