The longitudinal axis, often referred to as the vertical axis is perpendicular to the transverse aircraft. The planes and axes for the extra universal planar activities are defined in desk 1-9. either the conﬁguration of a joint and the road of pull of the muscle performing at a joint confirm the movement that happens at a joint: • A muscle whose line of pull is lateral to the joint is a possible abductor. • A muscle whose line of pull is medial to the joint is a possible adductor. • A muscle whose line of pull is anterior to a joint has the aptitude to increase or ﬂex the joint. on the knee, an anterior line of pull could cause the knee to increase, while on the elbow joint, an anterior line of pull could cause ﬂexion of the elbow. • A muscle whose line of pull is posterior to the joint has the aptitude to increase or ﬂex a joint (refer to instance above).

An instance of an ovoid joint is the glenohumeral joint—the humeral head is the convex floor and the glenoid fossa is the concave floor.
