The purpose of this research was to test the accuracy of automatic measurement systems on 3D hand scans compared to conventional digital measurements. 15 participants' right hand was 3D scanned with Artec Leo scanner, analyzed, and compared for seven measurements (five linear and two surface measures) in Anthroscan measurement software by Human Solutions. Means and standard deviations for each measurement were analyzed between conventional and automatic measurement conditions. Paired t-tests were used to understand significance between the two types of measurements. There was virtually zero difference for all the linear length measurements such as thumb breadth, hand breadth, hand length, wrist-index finger length, and palm breadth. However, a significant difference was found between conventional and automatic surface circumference measurements. Both hand and wrist circumference measurements showed nearly 4% difference between conventional and automatic conditions.
