Example text

Abduct and flex your thumb and notice that the direction to which the pad is pointing has changed by approximately 90 degrees. This rotation has not occurred actively; rotation has occurred because of the shape of the joint. Therefore, although the CMC joint of the thumb is not a true biaxial joint because of the rotation allowed, it fits into this category best because the active motion allowed is around two axes. With a triaxial joint, sometimes referred to as a multiaxial joint, motion occurs actively in all three axes (Fig.

Arthrokinematic Motion Another way of looking at joint movement is to look at what is taking place within the joint at the joint surfaces. Called arthrokinematic motion, it is defined as the manner in which adjoining joint surfaces move on each other during osteokinematic joint movement. Therefore, osteokinematic motion is referred to as joint motion, and arthrokinematic motion is joint surface motion. Accessory Motion Terminology Terminology can be somewhat confusing because various experts use the same terminology somewhat differently.

During the last few degrees of extension, the femur rotates medially on the tibia. This rotation is not an active motion but the result of certain mechanical features present. Therefore, the knee is best classified as a uniaxial joint because it has active motion only around one axis. Table 3-2 Articular System Example Bones in the skull Distal tibiofibular Teeth in mandible and maxilla Symphysis pubis, intervertebral disks Hip, elbow, knee Also at the elbow is the radioulnar joint, which demonstrates another type of uniaxial motion.
