Quadrupod Grasp

Quadrupod grasp is the term for a four-finger grasp pattern where the thumb, index, and middle fingers are placed on the writing utensil with the ring finger tucked beneath.

This type of grasp is considered to be less efficient than a tripod grasp, however it can still be functional. If your child has this type of grasp and complains of hand pain or fatigue, consider speaking with our occupational therapists to see how we can help!
