Abstract: The hand palm is an important human body part primarily for physical manipulation of the environment. For example, palmar hyperhidriotics report a low quality of life due to excessive palmar sweating disrupting normal palm use. As a body part in frequent contact with the environment, proper palm care should include routine checks to identify and localize surface and internal abnormalities at an early stage when chance for health recovery is particularly high. Effective intervention on palm care can benefit from a hand palm explorer device for in situ morphometry. High result reliability can be achieved if the device affords non invasive, non-destructive, and non-contact operation to avoid disturbing normal functioning of the palm during assessment
