Helping Hand Amplified

The human hand has fascinated many well-known artists including, Picasso, Rodin and the well-known fresco painter Michelangelo with his Creation of Adam.  The fascination continues with THHAT a non-profit organisation established from 2016.  THHAT consist of hand therapists, teachers, private tutors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and parents who have a passion for handwriting and rehabilitation of hand function/injuries.  In-hand manipulation of objects, as seen in the use of writing utensils, makes the human hand the most developed organ for prehensile use among all living creatures.  To emphasise the highly specialised capacity of the hand, it not only serves as an advanced “effector”  with the 38 muscles in the hand to perform tasks, but it also acts as an “affector” through touch.  The hand can sense touch, pain and temperature like no other part of the body with its highly specialised and large motor/sensory cortex representation in the brain.  The hand has enormous capacity and from a young age acts as the tool to explore the environment.  Fluent handwriting at the correct age is imperative for a healthy self-esteem and future academic success.  Age appropriate handwriting development with the correct pencil grip is a crucial developmental milestone.  The two arms of our NPO aims to improve education with special consideration to the healthy human hand.
