Hand Link Modeling and Motion Generation from Motion Capture Data Based on 3D Joint Kinematics 2005-01-2687

Characterization of the human hand motion necessary to manipulate hand-held equipment requires accurate capture and reconstruction of the arbitrary subject's hand motions with respect to the object. The present study used an individual link structure modeled from optical motion capture data to perform this task and compared the results against those obtained by medical imaging. Posture data was captured while grasping several cylinders, and the captured data were utilized to generate new postures to grasp cylinders of arbitrary diameter.
