Dermatoglyphics has a rich and scientific history of over 350 years and has documentation of research data and results dated 200 years back. Dr. Harold Cummins is acknowledged as the Father of Dermatoglyphics. He studied all aspects of finger print analysis in fields as varied as anthropology, embryology and genetics. His famous Down syndrome studies accurately predicted the genetic link to the disease upon study of finger print patterns and the Simian crease. The findings revealed that most children with learning difficulties have different fingerprints compared to normal children. This Assessment technique has been developed by scientists and research experts based on Genetics, Embryology, Dermatoglyphics, Psychology and Neuroscience.


Many research papers have elaborated on the link between finger print patterns and different diseases and psychological conditions. Further studies aroused educators' interest in establishing a link between fingerprints pattern distribution and innate intelligence potential distributions. Significant investigations have also been carried out into the Dermatoglyphics indicators of congenital heart disease, leukemia, cancer, intestinal disorders, rubella embryopathy, Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia as well as other forms of mental illness. Most of this research has only been published in the pages of medical journals.


In fact, in Germany Dermatoglyphics assessment has been taken very seriously indeed, to the extent that computer programs have now been designed to perform rapid multi-variant assessments of hand imprints which can predict with up to 80% accuracy the chances of a new-born child developing heart disease, cancer, leukemia, diabetes or mental illness. Such is the status of Dermatoglyphics analysis in Germany that it has become an integral part of the medical syllabus in many German universities.


Respectively, after years of research, these theories aroused and attracted the warm response from the whole world, especially in the Education and Psychology arena. These theories form the fundamentals for future generations of educators; applying the theories in many educational programs with marked effects in education institutes across America, Europe and recently in Asian countries like Singapore, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan etc. In recent years, U.S. and some Asian countries have applied Dermatoglyphics to educational fields, human resource management, employee recruitment, etc.
