going clockwise from hamate, list the bones in the hand
hamate, capitate, trapezoid, trapezium, scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform
36 of 49
what does the distal radioulnar joint do
pivot joint that allows the radius to rotate around the ulna in sup/pronation
37 of 49
what does the radiocarpal joint allow
condyloid joint that allows flexion, extension, radial and ulnar deviation
38 of 49

41 of 49
interphalangeal joints (proximal and distal) are what type of joint
hinge, n.b. the thumb has only one IP joint
42 of 49

origin and muscle belly is located outside of hand and act via long tendons
43 of 49
what are intrinsic muscles
located within and operate the IP and MCP joints
