Summary : Our primary tools for manipulating the environment are our hands. With only one, an individual is significantly limited. Loss of both hands necessitates the use of prostheses, which can only partially compensate for the incredible proficiency of the machinery controlling the hands' intrinsic and extrinsic musculature. To manage the rehabilitation of patients whose hands have suffered injury due to trauma or diseases of metabolic, joint, or connective tissue requires the combined efforts of talented clinicians from many disciplines.
