Welcome

Our hands are unique to all of us. No other part of the body provides the same skill, strength, dexterity, and sensitivity as our hands. For many of us, they are the keys to our livelihoods. For all of us, they are a point of contact with our environment and our fellow human beings. When our hands are in peril, our lives are directly affected in deep and meaningful ways.
