An Analysis of Hand Measurements for Obtaining Representative Japanese Hand Models 2005-01-2734

In order to create digital models representing the variation in hands of adult Japanese, 82 measurements were taken for 103 subjects using traditional methods. Factor analysis of the measurements was performed, and the first 2 factors were used to calculate measurements for 9 members of the boundary family. A 3D digital model was created for each family member by deforming a generic model by minimizing the total difference of 40 measurements between the generic model and the target hand model. The generic model with 36 degrees of freedom was created from medical images of a subject captured in 4 different posture.
