Subject: finger anthropometry

I am searching for anthropometric data that would provide at least the
following information for the index and middle finger:

length of the finger segments,
widths of the PIP & DIP joints, and
depth of the MP, PIP & DIP joints.

I was able to find some helpful data published by J. W. Garrett (1971);
however, this data is dated. Also, it includes data for the US Air Force
population rather that the general US population.

If you are able to recommend any references, I would appreciate your
assistance.

Thank you,
