Developers of MACS

In 2002 we started to work on this hand classification. The members of the group have different competencies and professions, they are located in different universities in Sweden. The team collaborates with CanChild, Centre for Childhood Disability Research, McMaster University in Hamilton ON, Canada. We have continued the discussion during different circumstances until consensus occurred in the group, than we tested the classification in several ways until we felt confident to present if for you.
