Best Handheld Scanner for Hand measurements

Post by a.basager »

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to find the best 3d scanner to get detailed hand anthropometry measurements for medical research. I would need to get hand length, circumference and also the same for each finger. What would be be the best handheld 3d scanner to get accurate and reliable measurements ?
Should I look into the Creaform Handyscan 3D or the Artec Eva or are there other cheaper options that would suffice?

Thank you for your time.

A couple of things to think about is that humans just will not stay still how ever hard you ask them to. So the question is how accurate do you need the data.

From what I've read is that it would be quick to scan an object such as the hand but I can be mistaken. They would need to pretty accurate as close as direct measurements of the hand. Also, If it requires a prolonged time to scan, is there a way to place the hand on a glass and take the scan or would it get in the way. Sorry I'm still a beginner in this field but it would really help to understand from the experts.

Usually, you can get people to brace their hands in a pretty stable position for the few seconds it will take to scan each one. I wouldn't worry to much about movement unless you're planning to do kids or old people who might not have good muscle control. The alternative would be multicamera photogrammetry, which would be more accurate, but a significantly more complex process.

An Artec Eva would likely work fine for this. You could probably also use the Lite version if you don't need color. I haven't used the Creaform, but I'm sure it would work well too.

Could have a look at the David scanner (now owned by HP) could be a cheap option.

Hi Everyone,

I'll say right away I work at Creaform and someone told me about this post. I wanted to add Creaform is behind a brand called "peel3d" (www.peel-3d.com) were you can find the Peel 1 scanner for about 6000 USD. It is the same hardware we sell to our OEM Orthotic and Prosthetic partners (Ottobock, WillowWood, TechMed 3D, Hanger, Choose your shoes) and it can do hands easily. Check and example on Sketchfab:

If this is not enough details, we have other possible solution within the 10 000 USD range. If interested, contact the peel3d team or buy online !

Hi there. I’m a scanning technician for Polyga and I think the H3 might be a unit you’re
interested in. It generates highly detailed and accurate scan data and with some help from the software, FlexScan3D, you can do some basic measurements. Scans from the H3 are accurate up to 80 microns. Link can be found here: https://www.polyga.com/h3-handheld-3d-scanner/

You can download a recent hand scan we did through this link: https://www.polyga.com/download/Documen ... udy%20.pdf
