Knee joint is one of the most important hinge joints of our body. Its complexity and its efficiency is the best example of God’s creation. The anatomy of the knee consists of bones, muscles, nerves, cartilages, tendons and ligaments. All these parts combine and work together.
Our interactive 3D knee diagram is an informative 360 degree rotating model. Each of the 6 sections ( Bones, Connective Tissue 1, Connective Tissue 2, Deep Muscles, Muscles & Skin) can be opened up, rotated left or right and viewed more closely.
A tendon connects the muscle to the bone. When the muscle contracts, the tendons are pulled, and the bone is moved. The knee joint is most significantly affected by two major muscle groups: The quadriceps muscles provide strength and power with knee extension (straightening). The hamstrings muscles allow for strength and power in flexion (bending).
