This is One UGLee Pen

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Have you heard about the UGLee Pen? You're probably puzzled by the name as much as I was initially. The UGLee pen was designed by Dr. James Lee who made it his mission to create a truly comfortable pen. After much experimentation and eight years of dedication, Dr. Lee finally created what he truly believes to be the most comfortable ergonomic pen around - the Ultimate Grip pen. It was often referred to as the Dr. Lee pen. It's name is now a combination of the two and so we have the UGLee Pen.

If you spend a lot of time writing, you may have experienced discomfort at some point. I recall always having a preference for a pen that had some sort of a grip on it as well as a pen the writes smoothly. I like my pen ink to flow easily and evenly. When I first saw the UGLee pen, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. The grip takes up about two thirds the length of the pen and has a very gummy feel to it. It also had a slight tackiness to it, which I didn't like. But after using it for the past week, I find I am liking it more and more.

And I'm not the only one.

I received three pens and so I thought I would share them with my office mates; my French teaching partner Julie and the music teacher. Both of them like their new UGLee pens and Julie says it is all she uses now. She raves about how comfortable it is. I will add that the first time I used it and after not using it for a while, it needs to "warm up, so to speak. But it really is only after writing a letter or two. Maybe it had some ink on the tip that had dried up. In any case, it's hardly an inconvenience. It does write incredibly smooth. I'm starting to think that Dr. Lee should come up with an UGLee pencil so that students who have difficulty holding a regular pencil could benefit from the design. I also know of a number of teachers who need to scribe for their students and complain that their hands are sore by the end of the day. One teacher has even complained that a lump forms on her finger from all the extra writing. I'm also thinking that the UGLee pen would make for a great teacher gift. It's unfortunate that they are only available online, however. Hopefully, we'll see them on store shelves one day.

Here's an article by Dr. Lee on Why Kids Need an Ergonomic Pen.
