Printable arm diagrams to show you the anatomy of the arm, along with the illustration provided in the diagrams. The arm can be divided into the upper arm, which extends from the shoulder to the elbow, the forearm which extends from the elbow to the hand, and the hand. Let’s see the arm anatomy diagram below to get you more information about the arm.
You can notice in the arm diagram that the arm is divided by a fascial separating the muscles into two osteofascial compartments: the anterior and the posterior compartments of the arm. The fascia merges with the periosteum of the humerus. The humerus is one of the three long bones of the arm. It joins with the scapula at the shoulder joint and with the other long bones of the arm, the ulna and radius at the elbow joint. More anatomy of the arm diagram is posted below.
The elbow is the hinge joint between the end of the humerus and the ends of the radius and ulna. Two other muscles are considered to be partially in the arm are the large deltoid muscle and the brachioradialis muscle originates in the arm but inserts into the forearm.
In one of the diagram above, the arteries of the arm are also shown. The main artery in the arm is the brachial artery. This artery is a continuation of the axillary artery. The deep artery of the arm travels through the lower triangular space with the radial nerve. One specific diagram above is given without the labels for you to use as review or quiz paper.
