This paper presents a new method for constructing an example-based deformable human hand model from medical images. Realistic animation of human hands requires good estimates of the joint structure and properly weighted skeleton-driven surface deformation. For this purpose, we propose a method based on medical images of hands in several poses. Our method consists of the following 3 steps: First, using the measured bone shapes, we estimate the link structure (joint rotation centers) and thedoi:10.2312/sca/sca04/357-365 fatcat:ghlb3auqsracjmvwqpfmrc6i5a
