Types of Joints

Types of Joints

Uniaxial joints have only one axis of rotation and operate much like hinges. The elbow joint and the joints connecting the phalanges of the fingers are examples of uniaxial joints.

Biaxial joints, such as the wrist and the ankle, allow movement in two perpendicular axes.

Multiaxial joints have at least three axes of motion and can create movement in all three perpendicular planes. The shoulder and hip, which are ball-and-socket joints, are examples of multiaxial joints.
