Time-of-Flight (ToF) cameras provide an easy, robust and touchless way to accomplish a three-dimensional surface scan at real-time framerates of >25Hz and with lateral resolutions of up to 204x204 pixels. This paper describes a processing pipeline to detect anatomical details the hand like finger tips, root finger joints and center of palm. The processing pipeline robustly analyzes hand in the field of view even if they are covered by gloves or sleeves. Additionally, the available depth data leads to a robust segmentation and validation of the anatomical structures.
