Belgian Hand Group


Welcome to the website of the Belgian Hand Group, a scientific organization to study the hand: its function, pathology and the treatment of injuries and diseases.

On this site you’ll find some more info about our society and activities. There’s also a special members only section.

We are also proud to announce our celebration congress of 50 years Belgian Hand Group on 3rd September in M Mudeum Leuven. Our Belgian Hand Group was founded in 1972 – it was a beautiful year: a.o. the first pocket scientific calculator was introduced, Don Mclean released ‘American Pie’ and ‘The Godfather’ came to theater, a liter of gas costed only 0.36 Eurocent, the first single-chip microprocessor was invented and funny detail, your current president to the BHG was brought into being. So now it is time to look back, look forward and celebrate!

Join us to celebrate this unique event!

Thank you to our partners!
