Hand Anatomy 101

Postby andreas » Sat Feb 14, 2015 7:12 am

It's really helpful to have the specific and proper terms for the different parts of the hands when communicating design ideas about hands. See the diagram below for some basic anatomical names of the different bones and joints of the hand.

Excellent topic. Singulars and plurals of Latin words follow Latin rules of grammar.
The singular of phalanges is phalanx, not phalange, just like the singular of vertices is vertex, not vertice.
Not meaning to be nitpicky here. I'm not going to interrupt anyone mid-sentence, or at all for that matter, to make a correction.
But when you hear some folks say or write "phalanx" and "vertex", understand these are just singular forms.

Would this be the right spot to put an exploded diagram of an eNABLE hand with all parts labeled with agreed-upon terms? See topic about Bracers.
