Joints hold our skeleton together and aid in movement. Joints are defined as the areas at which two or more bones meet and they are complex systems that are made up of a variety of different parts.
There are many types of joints including: Ball and Socket Joints, Hinge Joints, Pivot Joints and Ellipsoidal Joints. These joint types are known as mobile joints, or joints that aid in movement. There are also joints that do not move, such as suture joints also known as synarthroses joints (definition; immovable articulation) which are found within the skull.
Our joint anatomy charts display the anatomy of all major joints within the human body and these include: Ankle & Foot Joints, Knee Joints, Hip Joints, Elbow joint, Forearm & Hand joints, Spine and Vertebra, amongst many others. These charts are a useful reference resource for medical practices, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, hospitals and medical institutions.
Each one of these charts was originally designed and hand drawn by a highly skilled anatomical illustrator. These charts have also been printed on high quality 170 gram satin paper.
