The Lifetime Achievement Award has been developed to recognise therapists who have made an outstanding contribution to hand therapy internationally. The enormous contribution of the award winners will influence many generations of Hand Therapists to come. Ultimately of course, their accomplishments will benefit countless patients far into the future. The IFSHT Membership therefore, expresses its sincere appreciation and gratitude to our pioneers for enriching our passion, Hand Therapy.

They are listed left to right.
