Human hands are important parts that permit a person take different activities, grasp different objects and work with varieties of tools. This paper presents a 25-degree-of-freedom (DOF) model and workspace analysis of fingers for Santos™, a new generation of virtual humans. This 25 DOF model can realistically simulate all possible movement of each finger in 3-dimension. It permits the hand arch in the palm. The Jacobian rank deficiency method is implemented to study the workspace of fingers.
