The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint formed by the articulation of the head of the humerus with the glenoid fossa of the scapula (shoulder blade). The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body, which allows us to position the hand anywhere in space.
The elbow is a complex hinge joint, which allows flexion, extension and rotation of forearm. It is formed by the articulation between the bottom end of the humerus (the arm bone) and the ulna and radius (the two forearm bones)
The hand is a very complex part of the body, formed by 19 bones, 14 joints, muscles, tendons and nerves. The intricate function of the hand depends on the close coordination between these structures
The wrist joint is one of the most complex and active joint in our body. It bridges the hand to the forearm and is actually a collection of multiple bones and joints
