||Basic description a
||Commences between the head of the Humerus and glenoid fossa of the Scapula, separating the upper arm from the trunk; Ending at the elbow axis, noted by the trochlea of the Humerus and olecranon process of the Ulna.
||Commences at the elbow axis (described above); Ending through the wrist axis, noted by the styloid process of the Ulna, and the base of the Pisiform, Lunate and Scaphoid carpal bones.
||Commences through the wrist axis (described above); Ending at the most distal point of the phalanges of the hand.
||Commences beneath the head of the Femur along the line of the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and inferior ramus of the pubis; Ending through knee axis, noted as the ‘tibial plateau’ (space between the femoral and tibial condyles).
||Commences through the knee axis (described above); Ending through the ankle junction, noted as the articulation between the Talus, Tibia and Fibula, spanning beneath the medial and lateral malleoli.
||Commences through the ankle junction (described above); Ending at the most distal point of the phalanges of the foot.
