The hand—palm, fingers, and thumb—consists of several small bones and joints that are specialized to allow intricate movements. Cylinder-shaped bones extend between the wrist and the finger bones. Each of the 4 fingers has 3 joints; the thumb has 2. The hand and fingers allow us to perform fine tasks, such as embroidery or using a keypad, as well as carrying and lifting objects.
