How To Videos

If you have a hand or upper limb difference you will have learnt or be learning to do things your own way. Even if you know someone with the same type of hand difference as yours, you may do the same task in a different way.  The best method is the one that works for you.  Have a look at our Patron, Jessica Smith OAM, demonstrating upper body exercises, tying up hair, painting nails and putting earrings on and more.

Other How to Videos will be shared here as a resource and reference point for you and others learning their own way of doing daily tasks.
