ATD Angle

ATD angle is a Dermatoglyphic trait formed by drawing lines between the triadic below the first and last digits and the most proximal triradius on the hyposthenia region of palm.


Since early 70's Soviet Union had been applying Dermatoglyphics and ATD angle in selecting athletes. Dermatoglyphics and ATD angle have been secret weapon & tool in selecting contestants for Olympics

In the countries like China, Australia, Japan, Malaysia &Taiwan etc., Dermatoglyphics analysis & ATD measurement is must before selecting any student in any sports team. If the findings of the Dermatoglyphics & ATD angle are not favourable then the student is not taken in the sports team but if the findings are supporting then the coach and other authorities of the sports team focus and concentrate on the training on such students.

This is one of the key reasons that China has won the maximum no. of Gold medals in Olympics since beginning.
