  • Fleibility and strength..Lucy - so very important! So far I'm getting the impression that the program is giving the participants hope - and once they experience the benefits they have even more! thinking about the loss of strength and fflexibility in your hands as you age can be frightening, thinking about the simple things, like sipping coffee or putting on...

  • At 12 months the participants that received the SARAH program had shown double the progression in hand improvement compared to the usual care participants. That is remarkable!
