There are a total of 27 bones in the human hand. 14 phalanges (proximal, intermediate and distal) 5 metacarpals and 8 carpal bones.
The joints of both the hand and wrist are surrounded by stabilising ligaments.
The Muscles and Tendons of the Forearm
This model focusses on the deeper muscles and tendons of the forearm. Several forearm muscles have long tendons that extend into the hand. The Palmar Aponeurosis (Palmaris Longus) and Flexor Digitorum Superficialis have been removed in this model to give a clearer view of underlying structures.
The Muscles and Tendons of the Hand
This model focusses on the muscles and tendons of the hand and wrist along with some additional muscles from the forearm. There are more than 30 individual muscles in the hand and forearm that work together to give a diverse range of movements.
