The Arm-mounted Pen Holder is an assistive device designed to help persons with spinal cord injuries write using a pen. To achieve this, the device creates a stable writing position by attaching to the arm behind the wrist, and to the pointer finger. Having a more stable position allows the end-user to write by moving their arm rather than their wrist/hand.

where does the pen go?

Hi @KenHackbarth. This device actually uses the pen’s ink reservoir rather than fitting In various pen sizes. The project link in the post above will bring you to our website project page for this device where the usage is explained (https://www.makersmakingchange.com/?post_type=project&p=7577&preview=true). Hope that answers your question :slight_smile: please let me know if you need assistance in requesting, building this device, or have any other questions.

There is probably an opportunity to continue working on this design to create a more modular approach, separating the cuff portion and pen mounting portion.
