Participating in daily occupations usually involves the hands, and regardless of condition or setting, occupational therapists often evaluate and treat the hand. Although the focus of rehabilitation services and therapies is to improve health and function, many of the current tools assess hand disabilities instead of abilities. The Manual Ability Measure-20 is a task-oriented, occupation-based hand assessment that was developed through extensive research, and it is very easy to use. This article will briefly describe how it was developed and provide an example of how it can be used within an oncology setting.
