Hand therapists are fundamental in the rehabilitation process of persons who have experienced partial hand amputations. As such, it is important that they are familiar with the latest technology to assist patients in achieving their goals. Recent advances in functional prosthetic intervention at the finger level are changing the paradigm for this population. This webinar will update and inform the ASHT community concerning technical advances in the finger amputation intervention space.
