Paper Abstract

Synovial joints at the ends of long bones, provide the means of articulation of the human skeleton. These joints provide varying degrees of freedom, from the simple hinge action of the elbow or the middle joints of the finger through the ball and socket joint of the hip to the complex rotating hinge with translation of the knee.
