The students can follow these steps to make their elbow joint diagram: Step 1: The student should first draw the upper part of the front part of the elbow that has a pulley-like structure, trochlea. After that, they should create the inner part of the coronoid process, forming a curve to keep a hold on the trochlea (pulley-like) of the humerus.
The elbow is one of the largest joints in the body. In conjunction with the shoulder joint and wrist, the elbow gives the arm much of its versatility, as well as structure and durability.
It is the point of articulation of three bones: the humerus of the arm and the radius and the ulna of the forearm. The elbow joint is classified structurally as a synovial joint. It is also classified structurally as a compound joint, as there are two articulations in the joint.
