Abstract: Custom splint design is becoming more common. However, poor 3D scan quality can negatively impact the design accuracy. This paper describes a method to build a 3D statistical shape and pose model of the forearm from 3dMD scans. The model is used to assist the registration of previously unseen forearms in a wide range of poses. We show that this model-based surface registration results in a good geometric fit, with accurate anatomical correspondences. This method could be used to upgrade low-resolution scans using a high-resolution model.
