The first thing that came to my mind is "Lormen" (see e.g.
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lormen, in German). But that's
essentially finger-spelling by assigning a separate letter to each
point of the palm and inner finger surfaces, and you spell out words
by touching various parts of the hand in sequence, so probably not
useful for your purposes.
