Publication Date: Summer 2000
Article about adapting to one-handedness. The article discusses the effects of one-handedness and two types of rehabilitation (restoration and adaptation). The article also presents three keys to managing single-handedly, developed through the author's application of the Feldernkrais method, which includes body positioning, full use of each finger and thumb, and assistive devices. The assistive devices described used in the Feldernkrais method are adapted cutting boards, suction cup pads, electric can openers, card shufflers, card racks, and pool cue holders.
