Kinesiology wrist and hand by Mind Map: Kinesiology wrist and hand

1. Wrist Extensors

1.1. Extensor carpi Ulnaris: Actions: extension of wrist, adduction of wrist, and weak flexion of elbow, Origin : common extensor tendon and ulna. Insertion: 5th metacarpal. Innervation: radial nerve

1.1.1. extensor carpi radialis brevis Actions: extension of wrist and abduction of the wrist. Origin anterior of lateral epicondlye of Humerus. Insertion: posterior base of the third metacarpal. Innervation: radial nerve. extensor carpi radialis longus. Actions: wrist extension and abduction, and weak pronation from neutral. Origin: lateral supracondylar ridge. Insertion: 2nd metacarpal. Innervation: radial nerve

2. Finger Flexors

2.1. Flexor digitorum superficialis: Actions: Flexion at the MCP and PIP joints of fingers, flexion of wrist, weak flexion of elbow. Origin: Medial epicondyle of humerus. Insertion: Anterior margins of the middle phalanges. Innervation: median nerve

2.1.1. Flexor digitorum profundus: Actions: Flexion of the four finger at the MCP, PIP, and DIP Joints and flexion of the wrist. Origin: upper 3/4 of the anterior and medial surfaces of the body of the ulna. Insertion: Base of the distal phalanges. Innervation: median and ulnar Flexor pollicis longus: Actions: Flexion of the thumb at the CMC, MCP, and IP joints, flexion of wrist, Abduction of wrist. Origin: the middle anterior surface of the radius and the adjacent interosseus membrane, ulna Insertion: The base of the distal phalanx of the thumb. Innervation: median nerve.

3. Finger extensors

3.1. Extensor Digitorum Actions: extension of fingers at thte MCP joints, extension of the wrist, and weak extension of the elbow. Origin: common extensor tendon, lateral epicondlye. Insertion: extensor expansion of middle and distal phalanges. Innervation: Radial nerve

3.1.1. Extensor indicis: Actions: Extension of index finger at MCP joint, weak wrist extension and weak supination from prone position. Origin: posterior distal third of the ulna and interosseous membrane. Insertion: middle and distal phalanxes of 2nd phalange. Innervation: posterior interosseous nerve EXtensor digiti minimi: Actions: extension of pinky at MCP joint, weak wrist and elbow extension. Origin: lateral portion of the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. Insertion: middle and distal phalanx. Innervation: Posterior interosseous nerve. Extensor pollicis longus: Actions: extension of the thumb at the CMC, MCP , and IP joints, extension of wrist, abduction of the wrist, and weak supination of the forearm. Origin: middle third of the posterior surface of the ulna. Insertion: base of thumb and middle phalanx. Innervation: radial nerve.
