  • Hand Anatomical Data


    My name is Wendy Reffeor and I am a PhD candidate at Michigan State
    University. I am studying 3D motion of the human hand. I have been
    trying to find detailed anatomical data on the human hand and have had
    little luck. There is some data in "Biomechanics of the Hand--A Basic
    Research Study" by Chao, et. al., but the data for the bone segments
    includes only lengths of two of three phalangeal bones and no data for
    the metacarpals. There also is no data on the basic diameters or more
    complex shapes of these bones. I have tried searching the biomech
    archives and have been unsuccessful. I do not have access to cadavers
    to generate this data myself and figure it must be available somewhere
    as there are many human skeleton models used for teaching. If anyone
    has a source for this data, I would greatly appreciate the information
    and will forward it to the list for others to use.

    Thank you,

    Wendy Reffeor
