The number of left-handers continues to grow and is today estimated at 15% of the world’s population and around 25-30% for children ages 6-12.
Specialised in the children’s target market, Maped has launched the first complete range of products specifically designed for the needs of left-handers, in order to:
- Make learning easier for tasks such as cutting, writing, sharpening a pencil or drawing by ensuring easy grip and good visibility
- Eradicate bad postures caused by the use of unsuitable products (designed for right-handers)
A variety of consumer studies as well as in-depth work with a team of experts (ergonomists, graphotherapists) support the performance of these products for an often forgotten population.
