Annual Meeting

Once a year we hold a public meeting to keep everyone informed of what we have been working on, able to accomplish and plans for the future.  This meeting is also an opportunity for our board of directors to evaluate the organization's progress towards our mission, set goals for the upcoming year, review our financials as well as our policies.  By doing this, we are hoping to encourage the growth and success of Enhancing Skills for Life.​ View our 2023 Annual Report. The link to watch our annual meeting can be found in our newsletters or can be emailed to you by contacting us. The 2024 Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 25th at 4:00pm central.

A Small-Scale Survey of Bilateral Upper-Limb Loss Individuals
This small-n survey recruited 28 individuals with Bilateral Upper Limb Loss. 
Users of each type of prosthesis demonstrate a high level of function. Electric hook users scored slightly higher in number of tasks and other measures. However, no outcomes were significant statistically, except the use of the dominant side prosthesis, which was three times higher than the nondominant side usage. Users identified a dozen categories for desired improvements, with greater dependability and greater grip security as the most commonly requested. Harold also discusses his publication on this AAOP podcast.
