Monza learns how to hold a pen. When the wrong grip causes problems and headaches
How do you hold a pen properly? Probably none of has ever asked this question. In fact, the wrong use of the writing tool can cause a pathology: dysgraphia. That was the theme of the meeting “From pen to the mouse”.
Dysgraphia: prevention and re-education”, which took place at the Urban Centre in Monza on January 11. Among the speakers this important meeting supported by Stabilo, leader in the world of pens industry, was Christian Marquardt, German neuroscientist who explained the risks and the problems caused by wrong grip.
Prevention is important; Marquardt’s research results have proved that dysgraphia is often the cause of postural and sight problems, and also annoying headaches. Left-handed people in particular, tend to twist their fingers in a bad way
The meeting was specifically aimed at primary school teachers. To this end, two years ago Stabilo gave birth to a teaching project called “Scrivo che è un piacere”(“writing is a great pleasure”), dedicated to the first 3 classes of elementary schools and to the last year of kindergartens throughout Italy. The aim, explained the company, is to give teachers the proper teaching tools, in order to help all children discover the pleasure of writing.
