Abstract

Human hand and finger movements are of obvious importance. The possibility of recording all fingers joints movements during everyday life is then strategic for medical diagnosis, surgery and post traumatic rehabilitation. A proper presentation of recorded data can be really useful for doctors and therapists to correctly act in the occurrence of peripheral nerve injury, rigidities, camptodactyly (decline in permanent deformity of the interphalangeal junction), orthoses, tenolisi, congenital malformations, trauma, dexterity and/or muscular and/or articulate motility evaluations, thumb atros, syndromes, use of mentors, spasm, use of mechanical supports etc. According to this context we report a virtual reality implementation on the basis of fingers movements recorded data, suitable for fingers joints movement analysis.
