Clear, practical advice on daily living equipment
This section includes a range of equipment that may help when writing including pens, grip attachments for pens, and writing slopes. These items may help if you experience difficulty when writing, perhaps due to tremor or because arthritis makes gripping a pen painful.
Equipment for producing Braille or Moon is also included. Braille is a system of raised dots which form cells representing letters or words, whereas Moon is a system of raised lines and curves - both can be read by trained blind or partially sighted people who then use their fingertips to read the text.
