We can accomplish some pretty awesome things using our hands. Surgeons can carry out masterful surgeries on brains. the guys in Formula 1 pit stop change wheels in just a couple of minutes, and we are able to develop new drawing lessons for you dear readers.


We can do all these things accomplish with the help of advanced arms. It is certainly an impressive evolutionary device we’ll examine in greater detail this week. In particular, we will look at the skeleton of the upper limbs in general. In general, the upper limb, particularly the hands, can be a challenging thing for artists.



Upper limb belts are made of just two bones, the clavicle as well as the scapula. It’s much simpler than the pelvic bones, isn’t it? The girdle of the upper leg of the limb is connected to the rib bone via many ligaments and muscles, and also the sternoclavicular ligament. This joint appears like this: Let’s take a look at each bone separately.


The scapula is a massive, flat bone that is attached to an erroneous rib bone. The scapula has a triangular shape. In this way, we notice three corners at the shoulders, 3 edges, and a variety of other important procedures. The sides of the scapula’s edges include the median edge and the lateral edge as well as the upper edge. The angles are referred to by somewhat different names – the higher corner and lower corner and the lateral angle.


As we have already mentioned the scapula’s flat has two different surfaces. On one side the scapula’s surface is located next to the ribs and this is called”rib’s surface. The other surface is facing the back and is called the dorsal area. On the frontal surface, there is a huge fossa that covers almost all of the space. This is the subscapular fossa (fossa subscapularis) and is filled with fibers from the muscular subscapularis, which is strong. It also shows the angles of the upper (angulus superior) and lower (angulus inferior) and the laterally (angulus the lateral) angle of the scapula.

If you turn your scapula around and examine the dorsal side, we will observe a prominent horizontal protuberance that is slightly inclined. This is the scapula’s spine (spinal the scapula). The space on the dorsal side located just above it, the spine that runs through the scapula is known as the supraspinatus fossa (fossa supraspinatus), and the area below the spine is known as the infraspinatus Fossa (fossa infraspinatus). Both pits are filled by muscles with the same name. They have a distinct contour by athletes.


The scapula’s scapula’s top transforms into a large, rounded protrusion, known as the acromion. Acromion is the point of contact between the scapula and the clavicle. If we examine the acromion it is evident that there is an Acromial angle as well as the acromial surface of the articular. Near the acromion lies the angle to the side of the scapula. On the lateral side of the scapula are articular backs (cavities of the glenoid). Above the glenoid space is the coracoid system that runs through the scapula (Processus coracoids) There are several muscles associated with this process.


The clavicle is a crucial bone of the upper limb. It connects the upper limb with the ribcage. The clavicle can be described as a long, curving bone. The clavicle has a body with two ends. The first is the connection to the point that connects the clavicle to the sternum (extremities sternalis) while the other end is the point of attachment to the scapula the acromion (extremities Acromialis).

The clavicle is a bony structure that is quite evident in people with thin bodies. Furthermore, in someone who has this body, the supraclavicular fossa is well visible. The upper free limb is comprised of the forearm, shoulder, and hand. The shoulder’s skeleton is the humerus. the forearm’s skeleton is the ulna and the radius. The hand’s skeleton is comprised of a variety of bones which are subdivided into wrist bones as well as metacarpus bones and the phalanges of fingers.

Free Upper Limb


The humerus is by far the most huge bone found in the upper leg. As with all tubular bones, it is divided into two parts – the lower and the upper. The ends of tubular bones are known as epiphyses. The majority of the humerus is located on the part of the humerus’s body – the diaphysis.

The epiphysis on the top is the humerus’s head (caput humeri) which is a rounded portion that articulates in a scapula. The head, like all things in anatomy, is an area that is narrower known as the neck of the anatomical. If we continue to move toward the body, we’ll notice a more prominent shrinking known as the surgical neck. The surgical neck is an unusual name since when we fall, it is this neck that often fractures.

A large tubercle, as well as smaller tubercles, are found in the back of your head. Combs that have similar names are extending down to each tubercle. In the mid-body region, there is the deltoid tuberosity, clearly visible with a rough surface to which the strong and strong deltoid muscle is connected.


On the lower epiphysis, there are small elevations over the articular surface. These are referred to as epicondyles. The articular area is known as”the condyle” of the humerus. The surface is composed of the condyle’s head of the humerus, as well as the block of the humerus. In front of the articular area lies the coronary fossa and behind it is the fossa that forms part of the Olecranon.


The humerus can be articulated with the radius and ulna. It is possible that you have a hint that the radius is located on the thumb’s side and the ulna to the right of the finger with the little. The radius is a lengthy, tubular bone that lies between the humerus and hand, on the side of your thumb. The radius is an upper part (caput radius) that is located in the neck (collum radius). Just below the neck is inside the tuberosity.

The body of the radius ends at an extended lower portion that is the bones. On the lateral aspect, we can see the styloid process (Processus radius) in the radius to allow articulation, and on its opposite side, we see the ulnar cut (incisura ulna) for articulation with ulna. In our drawing, we’ve marked the spot on the back of the incisura ulna rest where the incisura ulna rest can be found.


The ulna is the other bone that makes up the forearm. The ulna is a two-end bone as well as a body like other tubular bones. The upper portion of the ulna is articulated with the humerus and the radius. The lower part of the ulna connects to the radius and hand bones. The ulna is a great landmark that you can use to be able to identify this bone precisely and not be confused with the radius when you’ve forgotten the rules of the tiny thumb and finger. This is a huge olecranon on the upper of the range.


At the top, there is a coronal process, which is of smaller dimensions. Below these processes, on the bone’s body is the ulna’s tuberosity. The ulna’s body appears similar to a three-dimensional prism due to the presence of the edge of the interosseous that protrudes towards the medial side. At the distal tip of the ulna, there is the ulna’s head (caput ulna) for articulation with the hand’s radius as well as the styloid process to allow the articulation of the hand’s bones.

Hand Bones

The hand’s bones are among the bones that make up the most mobile component of the body. It is because of joints in the hand’s bones that we can perform gentle as well as precise motions that would be impossible for any other living thing on the planet. Thus, the hand’s bones are split into wrist bones metacarpus, bones of the wrist, and phalanges of fingers.


The wrist bones comprise eight tiny, dense bones, which are laid out in two rows: distal and proximal. The bones that are proximal to the wrist are the triquetrum and scaphoid bones and lunate as well as pisiform bones. The bones that are distal to the wrist comprise the trapezoid bone, the trapezium bone, the capitate bone, and the hamate bone.



The metacarpals are long, tubular bones that are different from the wrist bones. The metacarpus’ bones don’t have any special names, but they are ordered from one to five in the direction that runs from the thumb to the tiny finger. The metacarpal bone on the thumb forms the primary metacarpal bone and the metacarpal bone on the small finger bone is the fifth metacarpal bone.


The distalmost row of bones that make up the hand is the finger bones. They are short tubular bones, which are also known as the phalanges. The thumb is equipped with two phalanges: proximal as well as distal. The remaining fingers are made up of three phalanges, middle, proximal, and distal.
